The title of this article is a perfect example of how you can sell more Large Format Printing (or Wide Format Printing). As you know being in the print industry people across the industry and with end users / buyers the words used to describe printed work can vary.

Maybe you say Large Format, maybe you say Wide Format, then there are those that talk about Grand Format.

Another example are banners.

Some use banners and signs interchangeably depending on the use case.

Is it a light pole banner or a light pole sign?

While we could debate on the specific use case for the entire lexicon of the print industry we’ll focus on how this affects selling more of a product and more specifically Wide Format / Large Format printing.
