Poster Printing


We offer poster printing in various sizes and paper choices. We also design posters, and provide a poster template to download.

We generally encourage our clients to have an 11” x 17” sample poster (“proof”) printed before we reproduce their final documents at full size.  Typical turn-around times for sample proofs are 2-3 business hours. The cost for a sample proof is $10, and it will usually be printed on the same medium as the final document.

Large format prints at regular rates require 48 hours (not including weekends/holidays) from the time that we have all the information needed to start printing. Posters may be ready sooner, but this cannot be guaranteed for regular orders.

We are able to print posters in less than 48 hours, but these are considered a “Rush” order: 

36 hours - 48 hours, a 25% rush fee applies

24 hours - 36 hours , a 50% rush fee applies

24 hours or same-day, a 100% rush fee applies 

We guarantee the rush poster/s will be ready when needed, but do need at least 2 business hours for printing and drying of the poster/s.

 * NOTE:  SIZE RESTRICTION:  One dimension must be 42” (106.68 cm) or less for us to print.  There is no restriction on the longer edge. Documents created at a larger size can be scaled down by us (proportionately) during printing to fit this dimension, or smaller. 

Paper Options 

Presentation Paper (Matte)

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, matte finish, lightweight. Available in 36" only
Cons: Less than ideal for photographic content and cannot print with dark backgrounds.

Satin Photo Quality Paper (Semi-Gloss)

Pros: Affordable, semi-gloss, durable, good for printing documents with photos. Does not fade. Available in 36" and 42"
Cons: There are no cons - This is a great paper option.

Satin Photo Quality Paper (Glossy)

Pros: Affordable, glossy, durable, good for printing documents with photos. Does not fade. Available in 36" and 42"
Cons: There are no cons - This is a great paper option.

Poly-Film (Glossy)

Pros: Excellent for photo images, lightweight, color stable and vibrant color results. Available in 36" and 42"
Cons: A bit more costly, and surface defects (wear & tear) are sometimes more visible than on other mediums.

Fabric Polyester (Foldable)

Pros: Great option if you plan to travel with your poster, it can be folded and put in your suitcase for transport. You can iron (most hotels include an iron in room) on the back side of the poster to remove any creases after you get to your destination. Saves the hassle of traveling with a poster tube. Available in 36" and 42".
Cons: Slightly higher cost for the convenience.
