You encounter small format and large format materials on a daily basis. From the brochures you see in your doctor’s office to the billboards you drive by on the highway, both types of printing are used on a variety of surfaces to create signage and marketing materials. What are the differences between small format printing and large format printing, and which is right for your situation?

Small Format vs. Large Format

Small format printing can be used to describe printing on anything from a piece of copy paper to printing brochures on industrial printers. Large format printing is also known as wide format printing, and it is used to refer to printed objects that are between 18” and 100” wide. Anything bigger than 100” wide, like a billboard, would typically be called “super wide format” or “grand format.”

Small Format Printing

Do you have a printer in your office? There’s a good chance that you have your own small format printing device! Photographs, flyers, business cards and pamphlets are all materials created with small format printing. East West Sign Group uses small format printing to create in-store signage and other smaller-scale signs to accent your business interior and exterior. Small format can be used to print almost anything on a broad range of material types, and it is often used for small signs and marketing materials.

Large Format Printing

Most signs are created using large format printing. It can be used to print vinyl lettering, banners, aluminum signage and promotional signage. Large format printing can also be used to create yard signs, rigid signage, sandwich board signage and flags.
