Wide format digital printing is the way we get those big signs. You see it in retailers windows, real-estate signs, on car wraps, posters, wall signs and just about everywhere. What you may not see is a silent battle happening in the sign shops. The technology for these printers is changing, and quickly. A 5 year old printer is an antique. These are not inexpensive and getting the best is not that easy. However, using older equipment may be great for metal work or routing, but it's the technological equivalent of owning an iPhone 4 or Windows XP.
At Signs for San Diego, we just brought in the HP365. It is the latest and greatest in printing technology and we are pretty excited about it! This printer prints better colors, is faster, and uses more durable inks. It also uses the latest software. It is the difference between driving a Yugo and a new Tesla Model S. It is used for banners, posters, window graphics, and a hundred other sign types. It makes older printers obsolete.
What Is Digital Printing?
You likely have a digital printer on your desk. However, sign shops have much bigger printers. The ink is better, the resolution is better and these can print on 5 foot rolls and 150 foot long. They're like your desktop printer on some serious steroids. The best sign makers have cutting-edge equipment. This means that they produce vibrant colors, sharp borders, and crisp photos. You should be sure to ask the sign company what printer they are using and how old it is. All of the best sign makers uses digital printing, and most will have the HP.
