question: what sort of specialized printer does this sort of print ?
Large format solvent or uv ( latex making inroads now) printers, Nur, Vutek etc, etc up to 5metres wide for the one piece vinyl banner material. Like most billboards are done these days.
The adhesive material printed in tiled strips up to 2000mm, usually 1350 is easier to work with. They can be printed on Roland, Seiko, Mimaki, HP, Epson etc, etc solvent (or uv, latex) machines or Fuji, Inca etc, etc flatbeds.
The dpi for the file usually ranges between to 15-72 dpi (or even lower) on these size prints, but the printer will usually be set to 180-360 for these size prints.
