Large Format Print Materials

Whatever you need from large format and display graphics, there is a material to match. Here are a few of the more common substrates that Absolute use. 


DiBond is an aluminium composite consisting a polythene core between two thin sheets of metal. Lightweight but strong, DiBond is suitable for a huge range of display applications. The smooth, flat surface is perfect for printing high quality graphics.

Absolute print directly to DiBond using UV direct printing which provides a waterproof finish which is resistant to scratches, light and temperature.


A PVC board which is rigid and durable with a solid core, whilst still being very lightweight and flexible, qualities which make it a frequent choice for signage and display graphics.

Forex is specially designed to meet the requirements of direct digital large format printing. It provides a brilliant white, smooth and even surface which attains optimum ink adhesion and is extremely colour-fast providing a perfect printing result.

Forex is ideally suited for medium-term advertising, point of display or signage requirements.


A rigid yet very lightweight fluted PVC board, Correx offers an efficient solution to a wide variety of display applications and is ideal for temporary or medium term signage.


All Absolute vinyl and mesh banners are all printed in-house, meaning you can have whatever size you want. We’ve provided a lots of extra wide outdoor vinyl banners for events, and tall vinyl banners for external signage needs.

All banners are printed onto premium grade 516gsm vinyl, hemmed and eyeleted, making them durable and great for outdoor use. Printed using light fast inks making your banner incredibly vibrant and resistant to UV degradation.


Hand-stretched and varnish protected, we print directly onto a traditional artist canvas using lightfast inks for the highest print quality. All our canvases have a protective varnish applied and are hand stretched onto custom made 50mm deep wooden frames made to either standard sizes or to your own requirements.


Absolute’s flatbed large format HP Scitex FB500 printer is capable of printing on a far wider range of materials than those listed above, including other flat sheet metals, wood and Perspex.

We are also happy to work with materials supplied by our customers – up to a thickness of 65mm and width of 2000mm – subject to testing of suitability and print quality.
