Why should brands use LFP?

LFP deserves to be a top choice among brands as it is one of the most effective methods of marketing. It allows brands to market through outdoor advertising and in other forms.

Outdoor advertising is up till now, one of the inexhaustible methods of marketing. People are often exposed to ads outside of their home, be it on the way to work, running errands or even just taking public transport. Furthermore, due to the large size of outdoor advertising, it tends to catch people’s eyes quickly.

Which materials does LFP involve?

  • Paper Despite being one of the most popular materials for LFP, it is one of the least durable materials, hence it is not the most ideal material for LFP.

  • Vinyl If you are looking to do long-term outdoor installations, vinyl would be the best choice. With its flexibility and variety of finishes, on top of its affordability, vinyl has been used for many outdoor advertisements.

  • Fabrics and Textiles There has been an increased number of LFP for prints on fabric as this material for printing can serve a lot of purposes—ranging from simple frames to acoustic treatment panels.

  • Wood, Metal and other rigid substrates LFP allows the printing on materials like aluminium or wood. Despite the materials not being the most popular choice, it is definitely useful for more abstract projects such as exhibitions.
