Large format printers can be costly, so it is necessary to define your needs as a business and how you currently use your current printer before you invest.
The type of large format printer you invest in may vary depending on what you will be using it for. Consequently, it will be necessary to discuss your requirements with your printer provider. Common uses of large format printers include, but are not limited to:
Murals and wall coverings
What Type of Buyer Are You?
Adding to Your Production: If you are investing in another large format printer because the number of printers you have isn’t sufficient, you should already be familiar with the printer model you need and the speeds and size required.
Upgrading Your Printer: If you are upgrading your printer, it is worth making a list of the things that your current printer doesn’t quite hit the mark on. From here, you can look for printers that have these features and not end up paying more than you need to for a printer that has extra features you don’t require.
First Time Buyer: If you are buying a large format printer for the first time, be sure to make a list of features you need, helping you to narrow down your choices.
Depending on what you will be using your large format printer for, there are several types of materials you can print on. Alongside paper, plastics, metals, wood, acrylic, and fabrics may all be used for printing, ensuring you can quickly and efficiently create products.
Knowing exactly what materials you will print on will ensure you can select the most suitable type of ink for your prints. The type of prints you want to create will also dictate the size of the printer you require.
If you work in a fast-paced environment, the speed of your printer will also need to be taken into consideration. Whilst faster printers tend to be more expensive, most modern models offer fair speeds, so as long as the printer meets all of your other requirements, this may not be too much of an issue.
