You've probably guessed that Ricoh wide format printers are good at, well, wide format printing. But is that the same as large format printing? Why does it matter? Let's take a closer look!

Understanding Ricoh Wide Format Printers

Whether you're adding new Ricoh wide format printers to your fleet or want to get more value out of your existing machines, it's important to understand what they really do--and what they don't. That's why we're breaking down the differences between wide format printing and large format printing.

Large Format

Large format printing is a general term. It's used for any kind of printing that goes beyond the traditional 8.5x11" paper size--and that can come up quite a bit in most businesses.

Wide Format

Wide format printing is a kind of large format printing. The term refers to prints of more specific sizes. This means that Ricoh wide format printers could technically be considered large format printers--but because they allow you to print in all kinds of different sizes (and on various materials, too).
