History of Large Format Printing

History of Large Format Printing

April 20, 2020

Three years before the internet became public domain, in 1991, the very first digital large format printer was created. That printer design was purchased by a musician and artist named Graham Nash, better known from his part of the trio named Crosby, Stills and Nash. Nash Editions gradually developed and improved an archaic in technology and costly at $126,000, a machine that was able to print wide and large format digital fine art from digital proofs. The IRIS 3047 printer was conceived only to print short-lasting proofs. By 1996 the IRIS 3047 found itself competing with top-funded players the likes of Epson and Durst.

Today, the costs of large format printing to the consumer have drastically decreased while the efficiency and production have greatly increased.
