Although the move to digital formats and the emphasis on using new computing devices seemed to signal a decline in certain forms of printing, the wide format printing era seems to have been renewed. Today, more businesses are tapping into this form of printing and the results are companies such as HP, Canon and KIP creating new types of wide format printers to meet this growing demand.
What are Wide Format Printers?
Generally speaking, these are printers that can print from a width starting at 17” up to 100”. Printers which can print wider than 100” are generally called “Super-Wide” or “Grand Format” printing devices. Wide format printing is used to print banners, posters and any signage that requires large sizes. In certain conditions, people may use wide format printers instead of screen printing, especially for short runs or low numbers of copies. Read More
What Our Customers Are Saying
|We really appreciate you guys … truly … its great being able to order supplies, call for ser-vice and call and get someone you know and trust vs. an 1-800 to no where land.|

|I have to sing a praise for Scott. He is here working on our KIP and noticed the HP T1300 was plotting our AutoCAD prints sideways. He pointed out that it was recognizing the paper width as 35.9”, and said that since we were sending 36” wide prints it was automatically rotating them because it didn’t think the paper was wide enough. He unloaded the paper, slid the roll over about 1/8”, and it seems to plot fine. Now that’s service!|

|We received the printing order for the 50 laminated cards, delivered just before lunch, and they are perfect! Drew and the Hackworth team really stepped-up to the challenge, and truly “Raised the Bar” … We know we have a first class “one-stop-shop” for all of our printing and graphic needs. We look forward to future projects with the great support of Hackworth.|
