Ok guys I know it is possible to print bigger,
But what I want to know is if it is possible to print to CANVAS Like on a Espon or HP type print BIGGER?
Do those Banner billboard printers able to print to Canvas and is their Canvas for printing photographs Bigger?
Also How do you Stitch the canvas (smaller) ones together if needed? Is there a special company that does that??
Thanks for any further information.
What I want to do is print and image to CANVAS at bigger than 66" wide which is the widest InkJet printer to Cnavas that I know of?
Sign printers maximum size will be about 20 feet wide. Printing on vinyl impregnated canvas or synthetic fabric for trailers or large illuminated signs. Usually this kind of media is sealed together instead of stitched if it has to be larger than the 20 feet wide. Solvent and UV curing inks. Doesn't have the image quality and appeal you seem to need.
The high volume canvas shops switched to (eco)solvent printers and the canvas qualities that are suited for that type of ink. The printers usually have a bigger minimum droplet size and a lower image quality if compared to the most recent wide formats discussed in this list. It is relative though, canvas isn't the media for the highest image quality possible, image data for 6 feet wide prints usually is already stretched too much. Canvas up to 10 feet wide (Fredrix) is available for that kind of equipment.
I doubt there's canvas for water based inks beyond the 64" size. If I recall it correctly there was a Roland with water based inks at 180 cm (6 feet) wide but if Canvas is available for that machine it will be Roland branded. Stitching canvas will be difficult, the inkjet coating will break at the seam and it will be hard to keep the tension equal along the seam. If the solutions above are not usable then it may be wiser to laminate/glue the canvas parts on a larger canvas.
