Wide Format Experience Center Field Trip

Last spring Kristen and Kristin took a field trip down to Trenton, New Jersey, to meet with the team at Lindenmyer Munroe and see their printers in action. Why? Because, as Kristen puts it, “I like machines!” When she exhibited at their Wide-format Expo in the spring, she knew she wanted to return and see some of those machines in action. At the Wide Format Experience Center, the team showed off those machines by printing Design Pool patterns. This facility is 5,000 square feet, with a large area showcasing wide format printing and finishing equipment from top manufacturers. In addition, there is another area dedicated to a dye sublimation and textile showroom.

On this trip, Kristen was struck by the versatility of machines available. They had printers for paper, sure, but also blankets, soft signage, and laser-cutting machines. The speed and print quality of the various printers was also impressive. The tour reinforced what Kristen knows to be true; the possibilities for wide-format printing in the interior design community are endless. These printers have the ability to print on a wide range of surfaces. A designer really could print on any surface in a room; floors, walls, furniture, whatever!
