While large format printing might traditionally be associated with outdoor advertising – billboards, posters, vehicle graphics & more – in its purest form it’s simply another way to print any kind of imagery or graphic material. It presents a wealth of creative opportunity for artists and, in particular, photographers, as this fantastic project we worked on with Perou goes to show.

Over the years, PressOn have worked on some really fantastic projects for clients working in film and television – but when we were contacted by Limited Space (who were working with the BBC), we were asked to produce a series of graphics that were truly ‘out of this world…’

Most printers want to check each job before it’s printed. The trouble is, every time you open, work on, and save a file, you make a new, bigger file in the process. Last-minute amends? Bigger file.

In fact, when you’re nesting multiple jobs and adding other features like bleeds, grommets or cutter marks - the size and complexity of those source PDFs has grown exponentially.

How many of us can say we have had a real Eureka moment? How many more can say they actually had it while in the bath?

With so many forms of outdoor advertising available, it can be hard for brands to know which channels will have the most impact. Particularly in places where ad space is limited or crowded – such as big cities – standing out from the crowd can be a real challenge, and investing in out-of-home advertising can be a daunting prospect. In this saturated adland, vehicle advertising, and taxi media in particular, offers something of a golden opportunity.

At first glance, students and guests visiting Santiago High School may think they’re entering an aquarium filled with sand, seaweed, fish and sharks, instead of a school. And, that’s just what the students and administration at Santiago High School in Corona, California wanted to achieve when they embarked on a collaborative project to create a new, inspiring environment within the school’s main lobby. The cooperative initiative led to a complete graphics revamp tied to the school’s mascot, a shark, utilizing Avery Dennison digital media.

A careful selection process for signage providers was made when FESPA looked to transform their entrance atrium at their UK Headquarters at Holmbury House in Dorking. Recently appointed Technical Support Manager, Graeme Richardson-Locke identified the issue, ‘The atrium is a great architectural space but lacked any of the essential character and personality of the industries that our members belong to’ he explained. The search began to find a creative signage company that could devise a wide-ranging solution that would both inspire their own staff who work in the building as well as provide a welcoming, interesting and engaging space for visitors; including their numerous members.

A ground-breaking new service is about to be launched by The Packaging Experts, thanks to the installation of a Roland DG VersaUV LEF-200 flatbed UV printer.

The unstoppable phenomenon of UV printing is slowly but surely taking over printing plants. One of the reasons behind this trend is the gradual introduction of new printing devices, which are more affordable but deliver the same results. A good example is Agfa’s recently launched Anapurna H1650i. The new 1.6-meter wide hybrid printer and LED curing system prints on a wide range of rigid and flexible media, as well as on flexible substrate rolls.

The Colour House has clocked up two decades in sign and print, and for the last ten years has depended on a Roland VP-540 printer for a variety of work.
