When consumers print their labels at home, they can usually rely on 8.5" x 11" letter-size label sheets to get the job done. For certain applications such as commercial printing, however, sometimes standard letter-sized label sheets will just not suffice. To solve this problem, we're proud to introduce three new large format sizes: 8.5" x 14", 11" x 17", and 12" x 18". These sizes are available in a variety of our material offerings, as well as in our most popular label configurations.
Generally speaking, the need for larger format sizes stems from high volume, larger scale or custom printing done on either an offset or digital printer / press. These specialized printers are able to quickly produce large-scale materials such as signs, posters, banners and other oversized jobs too big for regular desktop printers. Most popular desktop printer manufacturers also produce models specifically designed for large-format tasks such as photography / graphics, publishing, technical documents and general use. It's important to note that while large-format label size 8.5" x 14" can be printed in most desktop printers, sizes 11" x 17" and 12" x 18" are only for use in large-format printers.
The end use of large-format sheets is open-ended and varies according to the application. For example, in the workplace large-format labels are useful for displaying instructional materials. At a glance, employees may be alerted to proper, safe working procedures and warnings with detailed diagrams and instructions printed on large, easy-to-read signs. For printing companies, large formats equate to quicker printing jobs and offer a competitive advantage to those companies that don't carry the larger sheets. In any case, implementing large / wide-format sheets results in greater efficiency in that more labels will fit on a single sheet and less effort is wasted loading paper trays. These are all factors that can, and will, affect the bottom line.
