  • Large Format Printing / Poster Printing

    For formats larger than A3, we can produce large format and poster prints with our plotter using the inkjet process. Especially for small editions like for example (scientific) posters or signs, digital printing is a worthwile alternative compared to the offset process.

    Format

    Up to DIN-SRA3: Printing of smaller formats up to SRA3 can be realized on our color laser printer.

    Up to DIN-A0: Larger formats can be plotted up to a width of 42 inch (1,067 m).

    Paper

    Photo Paper (190 g/m²): A strong, glossy paper, especially suitable for high quality prints. Better at full format colored posters.

    CAD-Paper (90 g/m²): A standard paper, only suitable for drafts with very low ink coverage, like small blueprints.


    File Format

    To ensure a print result as deterministic as possible, we do only print PDF files. These should be exported in PDF/X-3 format, embedded pictures should be in the AdobeRGB color space. In addition, used fonts have to be embedded in the document as well. The maximum printable resolution is 2400 x 1200 dpi. Higher resolved graphics should be reduced. In contrast, less resolved graphics could lead to pixelated or blurred artifacts.


    Pricing

    The price for one plot depends on format and paper type. The following table shows combinations:

      Photo Paper (190 g/m²) CAD-Paper (90 g/m²)
    DIN A0 15,00 € 10,60 €
    DIN A1 12,00 € 8,80 €
    DIN A2 9,00 € 6,70 €

    More prices on request. Additional fees may apply on very high color density (much higher than usual scientific posters).
