I am looking for a printer that can handle a 72" wide print job (and 108" long). The equipment exists, and is known as "grand format" as opposed to "large format" which is a 60" roll.

Obviously this is for a wall map, and I am trying avoid tiling it. It also needs to be laminated for dry-erase use.

I was hoping to find someone local so I can proof it with out having to ship it to me in New Jersy and then sending it to the client in Chicago.

Hi Nick.

You might try looking for a print shop that specializes in billboard printing or vehicle wraps. Those are two big uses for grand format, so a shop that offers those services would be likely to have such equipment. Please let us know what you find. I'm curious.

Hi Nick,

I know this is an old request but in case you encounter this need again, there is a print shop in New Jersey with the capabilities you need, they are Wyld Grand Format and their website is http://www.wyldgfi.com/ (I don't work for them and am only offering this as a suggestion since I am aware of their capabilities).

Good luck!

Mark
