External Signage Printers: The Best Wide Format Printers for Outdoor Signs and Banners

A vibrant sign can really get a business, promotion or event noticed. In fact, data from FedEx found that 76% of people go into a shop or business based on its signage while 60% are deterred from doing so if the building doesn't have a quality sign*. This presents an incredible opportunity to signage and display producers – who will find that Roland signage printers can help bring designs to life like never before.

Here are some ideas for external signage and banners printed on different technologies offered by Roland, to help you find the best printer for your business and to inspire you to create seriously eye-catching graphics.
