Here’s Exactly What to Look for in a Large Format Printer

Choosing a large format printer can be a challenging task. A quick search will produce thousands of results and choosing one can be difficult. We’ve compiled a few things you should look for in a printer to make sure you are working with one of the best.

Knowledge of Product

If you’re a printing guru, we’re impressed! If (like most people) you have other areas of expertise, you will need to select a large format printer that is knowledgeable and experienced.

Experienced printers will help determine the best products and materials for a project. A knowledgeable printer can take a complicated process and make it simple. Even better, an exceptional printer will share your excitement about unique ideas. They will also be realistic about what’s possible and communicate clearly. Choosing an expert creates a smooth process for everyone. You’ll have one less thing to worry about!


Your to-do list is long enough, don’t let your large format printer be one more thing you have to manage. A great large format printer will execute projects without dozens of reminders, emails or calls. Listen carefully when discussing a project with your printer. Do they discuss the process and timeline for the project, do they have a plan? A quality printer will speak confidently about what to expect and how they plan to execute a task.


Printing technology is always advancing. Those innovations help large format printers create superior products. Look for a printer that is proud of the equipment that helps them create their work. If they are eager to talk about the machines and tools they use, they are passionate about what they create. A printer who invests in technology makes a commitment to excellence and the longevity of their business.


We recommend that you look for a large format printer that stands behind the work they do. Do they offer a guarantee on their products? Are they willing to go the extra mile to make sure you’re satisfied with the work they do? Select businesses that are confident in their work and committed to their clients.


Professionals who work in the industry take great pride in the work they do. Look for a company that is open to unique ideas and offers custom solutions. Not looking for a custom product? A creative printer offers to innovate solutions and helps problem solve when needed. When you choose an imaginative printer, your project will have an original feel. A creative printer creates products that will stand out from the crowd.


Take the time to visit the printer’s website and read any reviews on other sites. No one is perfect, but browsing online should help eliminate poor candidates. Look for businesses with a web presence. Do they provide information on the products they provide? Don’t forget to look at the pictures that showcase their work. Look for a company that is passionate about what they do!

Honesty and Transparency

As in any business, you will want to work with a company that is straightforward and trustworthy. Look at quotes —have they provided information and pricing for all aspects of the project? A quality company will provide all costs upfront. They will be clear and easy to understand. There won’t be any hidden fees and they will be willing to answer any questions or concerns you have.


Outstanding large format printers will honestly advise their clients. They will identify any possible issues and suggest effective alternatives. They will use their familiarity and expertise to ensure you receive the best product. Finally, they understand that your work is a reflection of their business. They won’t recommend inferior products or pressure you to make a sale. Look for a company that respects your business and values you as a client.
