At the next cocktail party, want to impress people with your large format printing knowledge? Here is some terminology that will impress the guests.
Poster: Posters are typically made out of a paper material. They can be hung up on a wall or window and are good for indoor usage and rolled up when you are not using them.
Foamcore Sign: These signs are thicker than posters and cannot be rolled or folded. They are flat and have a foam center and are good for short term sign indoor usage.
Substrate: Hard material–such as foamcore, ultraboard, or coroplast–to which we print onto or apply vinyl.
Vinyl: Flexible material that we print on that is often adhered to a harder substrate, window, car or wall. There are dozens of types of vinyls that each have their own specialized use.
