Wide Format Printing

Wide format printing in all varieties of ink sets quickly became the backbone of ICON after our inception. In 2006, we acquired our first eco-solvent 54″ Roland and immediately found our place in the market.

Today, we’ve got an entire wide format printing fleet, each printer serving its own purpose – including solvent, aqueous, and UV inks. Weekly, we find ourselves printing on new material – be it glass, someone’s random 2″ x 4″ piece of lumber, fabric, coozie material, you name it.

We routinely color-calibrate our wide format printing machines and consider color-matching one of our many fortes.

What is Wide Format Printing?

A wide format printer is any printer with a maximum paper roll width of between 18 and 100 inches. In comparison, the largest sheet of paper your average home or office printer can handle is 8.5″ x 14”.

Is Wide Format Printing Expensive?

Wide format printing is an economical choice for small business owners who are looking for short-run projects, such as event signage, trade show booth design, banner printing, or even a limited run of posters for a music festival or art show.

What Are The Limitations Of Wide Format Printing?

With wide format printing, it’s possible to print on just about anything. There are very few limitations. We’ve printed on falconboard, metal, acrylic, foamcore, PVC, and even wood materials.

Check out some of the large variety of wide format printing work we’ve executed for ArtPrize in the past.


Falconboard is one of the more versatile mediums we have at our disposal.  It’s great for large posters, furniture, trade show backdrops and much much more. It is also 100% recyclable, strong and ships flat and on the cheap.


We stock a variety of metallic substrates ranging from Alupanel to Alumalite. Surprisingly, metallic surfaces take well to our UV-curable inksets.


High-end, used primarily for interior signage and decoration.  Comes in multiple thicknesses and can be ordered in multiple colors – or even completely transparent.

Sintra (PVC)

Coming in just about any thicknesses or color, Sintra is ICON’s go-to plastic substrate.  Can be printed directly to plastic via our UV-flatbed printer and also accepts mounted graphics.  Sintra has a wide range of uses, not only can it be directly printed on it can be custom routed to just about any shape and size to fit your project.


Coroplast is one of the most popular substrates for exterior signage. It can be used for A-Frames, yard signs, displays and much more.  Coroplast is cost effective, weather resistant and is a quick and easy way to promote your business or event.


Yup, you read that right. Toss a 2″x4″ into our printer – we can print to it.  Commonly used with high-end photo prints, tap handles, or any other crazy idea you’ve got. It’s basically magic.


Economical and cheap to produce, Foamcore is often used for posters, event wayfinding and other interior uses.


Gatorfoam is a multilayer composite of very dense and durable Polystyrene foam that is made to resist crushing and denting. This product is great for printing on, and is for indoor use only. We choose Gatorfoam over regular foam core because it is stronger, longer lasting and acid free.


Ultraboard is very durable and warp-resistent, and for interior use only. This foamcore center has a polystyrene surface, which is perfect because it doesn’t allow moisture to penetrate it. It’s a stellar product for digitally printing on.
