It is difficult to define exactly what constitutes large format printing, but for the most part if you need something that is more than 19" in length or width, you will be in need of what is considered large format printing. This form of printing is usually run digitally and works best in smaller volumes. Large format printing is often used to print posters, banners, maps, and a number of other large graphics. Most large format printers use rolls of paper, making it possible to print banners that are 100's of feet long in one piece. You are really only limited by the size of the roll of paper.
Large format printing works very well in small volumes. If you need 500 pieces or more(depending on size) there are other, more economical ways to print.
