WH Skinner are known for delivering high quality results with good colour reproduction, and a quick turn-around for urgent jobs. Together with our approachable sales team and excellent customer service, our wide format printing service is a winning formula which turns our demanding customers into loyal regulars. You can supply your own media for printing, or we can supply. Either way, it’s worth checking our artwork requirements here to ensure the best results.

Wide Format Print and Cut

Because we work in the packaging and point of sale industry, we have several methods of cutting your printed job. We operate a Zünd and a Kongsberg which are digital cutting tables, these machines quickly cut straight lines and curves – in any shape or size. These machines also have the capacity to cut and score with a knife and crease soft materials with a crease wheel and route more rigid materials. Digital cutting is ideal for short to medium production runs. For longer production runs we recommend platen or die cutting. We run 3 manual platens in different sizes so we’re able to cut your wide format printing quickly and efficiently. Read more about our custom cutting services here.

Wide Format Digital Printing

We have invested in the best wide format digital printing technology; you’ll be amazed at the near-offset print quality we can achieve with our digital printer. Our Swiss Q Print Nyala 3 wide format digital printer has a huge flat bed for printing large sheets of material. The bed measures 3.2m x 2m which suits most large sheet materials. We are able to print many smaller sheets at once, or one or two large sheets.

White Ink and Gloss Varnish

In addition to CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) our wide format digital printer has white ink and varnish. White ink is great for printing onto dark substrates; it looks really stylish and can be specified in 1, 2 or 3 passes for different density of colour – whether you want a rustic, eco-friendly look or full coverage. Varnish improves the vibrancy of the ink colours, adds durability and glossy, premium appearance – we can print matt or gloss varnish on our digital printer and we can flood the whole sheet or highlight areas of your artwork with a spot varnish.
