Posters and Banners
Using our Roland and HP High Definition Printers, with the very latest Piezo-Electric Inkjet Technology, we are able to produce Big Images of exceptionally high definition at 720dpi, up to 2380mm wide.
Dye Based Inks for Indoor Use:
Indoor use Big Image Posters are printed using Dye Based Inks. Dye Based inks produce extremely vibrant colours and are very economically priced. It should be noted that Dye Based Ink posters will fade if exposed to sunlight or any other UV light. Used away from such light their life is virtually unlimited.
Solvent Based Inks for Outdoor Use:
External use Big Image Posters are printed using Solvent Based Inks. Solvent Based Inks are guaranteed stable against UV light exposure for up to three years. In practice the durability may be expected to be in excess of this. Solvent Based Inks are completely waterproof and can be printed directly onto a number of non-porous stocks.
We offer a range of materials, some are suitable for either Dye or Solvent Based Inks and some are suitable for both.
The material range is:
180gm Photorealistic Matt, 195gm Photorealistic Gloss, 200gm Silk and 140gm Wet Strength Papers. Plus Back Lit Material and Banner Vinyl.
We offer several types of finishing for our Posters and Banners. The different types of finish available are described below and the costs can be found within the table for the relevant material on pages 87 and 88. We can also provide accessories to complement some products. These accessories, such as A frames and Pop Up Displays, are detailed on page 90.
Double sided Lamination using 43 micron plastic film is standard on our 180gm Photorealistic Matt paper. This protects the surface and makes the print less vulnerable to scratching. Lamination is not offered on 195gm Photorealistic Gloss. This material has a surface effect in their own right which is completely masked by Lamination.
Encapsulation is similar to Lamination except that the plastic extends beyond the edges of the poster and seals together. This makes the Poster effectively waterproof and extremely durable. Encapsulation is available in three grades: 43 micron, 125 micron and 250 micron per side. Whilst Encapsulation is offered on 195gm Photorealistic Gloss we would recommend using 180gm Photorealistic Matt paper if Encapsulation is required since it offers cost savings over the other materials and the end result is close to indistinguishable.
Mounting Posters on to 10mm Centafoam makes a rigid display which looks particularly appealing and is ideal for use in exhibitions and presentations.
Please Note: The cost of packing large Foam Mounted Boards to make them safely transportable can be considerable. Please check at the time of ordering.
Roping & Eyeletting
Banners on Banner Vinyl can be eyeletted and roped to allow for external hanging against a building or fence or across a street. The edges are folded and bonded to make double thickness prior to eyeletting for maximum durability.
