Wide-Format Specialty Media

Inkjet-compatible specialty media: fabric, fine-art, dye-sub transfer paper, magnetic, and more.

Print jobs don’t always need vinyl, film, coated paper, or typical rigid media. If the job-or the customer-calls for a specialty media, you’ll find it here. In this source list, you can reference companies that offer printable fabrics, fine-art canvas and media, direct-print magnetic media, dye-sub transfer papers, and other specialty media such as wall coverings, all designed for wide-format inkjet output.

Companies are listed alphabetically, and for quick reference, we’ve added the following graphic icons adjacent to each company name to indicate the type of media it supplies:

* = Dye-sub transfer papers
◊ = Fabrics
♣ = Fine-art media (includes photo papers and canvas)
♥ = Magnetic media
♦ = Other specialty media

We have only listed primary producers, manufacturers, and converters of media for the wide-format graphics market, as well as companies that have their own branded media. Note that we have not listed distributors/dealers who are simply selling another company’s branded media.
