Foot print made out of durable paperWide Format printers are used to print a variety of applications, such as to print banners, posters, trade show graphics, construction plans, and any other large artwork or signage. But the majority of these require a high-quality paper to ensure their printed graphics maintain a high resolution and clarity when enlarged - while staying cost-effective and durable too.

The patented manufacturing process of PaperTyger Wide Format creates a tear-resistant, lay flat sheet that tracks without static or curl through both roll and inkjet devices. The paper surface also has compatibility with multiple ink sets and toner devices. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of using our PaperTyger Wide Format paper for your applications: 

Good Print Performance and Ease of Printing

A significant advantage of PaperTyger products, including Wide Format, is its good print performance and ease of printing. There are no special inks or setups required and no prolonged drying times. Our consistent and smooth printing surfaces ensures exceptional graphics. As seen on our Wide Format Product Page, our PaperTyger Wide Format boasts:

  • Good toner/ink adhesion
  • Good line acuity
  • Good image sharpness
  • Good black density
  • Smooth matte finish
  • Alternative to double matte film

It’s as durable as synthetic paper (with added benefits)

The durability of PaperTyger is a result of a patented paper/film/paper laminating process that provides the toughness of a synthetic sheet, with the added benefit that it looks, feels, prints and converts like paper. Furthermore, our paper doesn’t require any added cost for prolonged drying times or special coatings, inks, settings or plates like most synthetic papers.

Water Resistant

Standard PaperTyger products are also water and tear-resistant - designed for short-term exterior applications. The inner layer of film offers a comparable moisture barrier to synthetic papers too.
