Poster printers are used for printing on large paper formats, such as A3. They are mainly used for producing print advertisements and images for billboards. Most models use inkjet technology, because they are cheaper and more reliable than color laser printers. They also have large onboard memory, starting at 128 MB, for storing large files.
