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).

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.

The PDF must have the correct size, we do not scale the PDF.

Printing time #

Usually we need 2-3 working days to print your poster. Sending your poster directly to your chair takes about 2 days. For short-term print orders, please send us an E-Mail or call us (+49 (0)89/289-22998).
