WHAT ARE WIDE-FORMAT PRINTERS? WHAT ARE PLOTTERS? WHAT ARE WHITEBOARDS?
A Brief Definition...

Wide-Format Printers: Also known as a large-format printer, these machines usually support a maximum print roll width between 18 and 100 inches (460 and 2,540 mm). Printers with capacities over 100 inches wide are considered "super-wide" or "grand format".

Uses for Wide-Format: Wide-Format printers create large-scale prints for various purposes, including banners, posters, trade show graphics, wallpaper, murals, backlit film (duratrans), vehicle image wraps, electronic circuit schematics, architectural drawings, construction plans, backdrops for theatrical and media sets, and other large format artwork or signage.

Plotters: A plotter is a specialized type of printer technology that creates high-quality images, large-format diagrams, and drawings on flat surfaces or paper. Unlike traditional printers that generate images by spraying tiny dots of ink or toner, plotters use pens, pencils, or other drawing tools to produce continuous, detailed lines.

Uses for Plotters: Times when precision and accuracy are absolutely necessary. From technical drawings, architectural plans, maps, charts, and other large-scale visual representations.

Whiteboards: You might know these as a "smart board", "interactive board", "digital whiteboard", or a "touchscreen presentation board". These are large display boards with some form of computer or connectivity technology. They are modern solutions to replace traditional whiteboards with markers.

Uses for Whiteboards: Classrooms, office conference rooms, boardrooms and work groups for business communication, training rooms, broadcasting studios.
