Large format for colleges & Universities

On the reverse, posters that were engaging and connected to the courses received more attention. Displays that encouraged further interaction with the subject also increased engagement. Such displays also often appeared in their departments with higher student engagement.

The study showed that large format prints are an opportunity for students to engage with subjects beyond the textbook. When employed effectively, they do work. The flexibility of large format printing offers a way to sidestep this. It allows lecturers and teachers to tailor their learning environment by creating relevant and eye-catching pieces.

All Colleges and Universities qualify for a FREE 3 year warranty plus a replacement print head. A saving of up to £2,558 (60″ Canon Pro 6100)

    How to transform your college or university using large format print

    Applications and uses

    The applications of large format visual media go far beyond simply what they can do in education. Branding matters in all professional fields, even for colleges and universities. Whether it is attracting prospective students or engaging current ones, large format printing is versatile. Some examples of how banners, posters or other large-format content can augment a brand including:
    • Presenting cohesive and polished representation at events and exhibitions
    • Increasing awareness, interest and pride for sports teams
    • Creating campaigns promoting healthy lifestyles or nutrition programs
    • Producing eye-catching advertisements for events organised by student unions.
    • Engaging the wider community with advertisements for events or fundraisers
    • Promoting values and policies within premises.

    In other words, college & university branding is about fostering community in order to create a sense of pride and spirit. Large format printing facilitates this.

    Career preparedness

    The digital nature of our world demands familiarity with technology. Likewise, many students will go into careers oriented around its use. Embracing technology in the classroom spurs innovation and fosters competitiveness. This is especially true when such technology applies to career preparedness.

    Large format printing is common in many industries, such as in the production of architectural and engineering blueprints. Introducing students to this technology early helps get them excited about these potential careers by creating beautiful and professional projects.

    However, classrooms can embrace large format printing for a variety of projects. With in-house large format printers, students can wave goodbye to poster boards and time-consuming, hand-drawn work. Working on a computer brings many advantages. Students gain more control over the design aspects while learning modern project management processes.

    Why? With an in-house print production facility, the students will need to visit the printing lab. This adds a layer of professionalism to the process. The project will need to be planned, produced, check and double-checked before printing.

    Creative Potential

    Having access to large format printing technology is only half of the advantage. Knowing how to use these devices and optimize designs for printing on them is the other half. A college or university that plans to use large format printing should consider training staff members to get the most from the printer.

    The training familiarizes staff with the entire printing process. You may not see yourselves as participants in the advertising or printing industries and may overlook the need for professional training.

    However, large format printing opens the door for many possibilities in visual displays. This includes branding, communication, and student projects and assignments. A trained specialist can unlock this potential. He or she can provide insight into the most effective designs and efficient settings for all uses.
