Digital Printing-Wide Format - Roll to Roll
Wallcoverings are back, big-time. They’re brighter and bolder than ever, and they represent one of the fastest-growing markets in digital printing. Growth is projected to be 25 percent annually through 2023, with revenue climbing from $2.53 billion to $7.74 billion.
Even before the pandemic hit, Ball State University Printing Services was disappointed it couldn’t print more of the university’s wide-format work. But when the need for campus signage exploded this year, it got the green light to bring on a new device to help meet demands.
There’s a lot of uncertainty and still many questions. What does the economy look like through 2020 and beyond? Will the industry rebound quickly or slowly? Where do we go from here? What does the next normal look like, and what does that mean for the future of wide-format printing?
