Large Format Printing Services

For large format digital printing services, our flatbed Swiss Q Nyala 3 digital printer takes sheets up to 3.2m x 2m with a clearance height of 50mm for those thicker sheet materials. We use LED UV-cured ink for long lasting bright colours. Along with CMYK inks, we also have white ink and varnish for more special, highly specified jobs. White ink is great for large format printing jobs on darker media. We find that white ink looks really stylish on our brown corrugated cardboard, and it’s fabulous on coloured paper, cardstock and Foamex.

Large Format Printing for Artists and Photographers

Our Swiss Q Print Nyala 3 Digital printer has the capability to print photos with fine colour gradations. We are able to print with smaller droplets of just 9 picolitres, which offers smooth gradients and uniform expanses of colour when combined with high resolution. Because we couldn’t put it better ourselves, feel free to read more about our fine art printing with a visual print resolution up to 2160 dpi here on the printer manufacturer’s website.

Large Format Printing for Museums

As a temporary display manufacturer we work with museums, galleries and institutions to print large, self-supporting structures to advertise temporary and semi-permanent exhibitions. We have the benefit over most print companies of having a team of in-house cardboard engineers capable of designing completely customised structures from corrugated cardboard and honeycomb cardboard – a fabulous recycled and recyclable material. However, we also use various different materials for a range of effects and uses. Click here to find out more about our selection of materials. We understand the importance of high quality print and millimetre perfect results when we offer our large format printing for museums. We also work with institutions such as universities, galleries and private companies to create large printed panels for temporary display and semi-permanent use.
