Lead Time

While it doesn't take long to print the typical file, we do need to fit it into our schedule. Please let us know when you need the poster and we will let you know the latest we can receive it. Please make sure your file is set to the size you would like printed. Resizing takes time and can delay delivery.

Size

We stock paper in 42" rolls. Please make sure your width or length is 40" or less, to account for margins.

Paper Options

Our stock paper is a 35lb heavyweight, coated paper (130g/m) with a matte finish. This paper is suitable for one time use posters and temporary signs.
For photographs we recommend our glossy paper.
For permanent displays that must endure repeat handling we recommend our Satin finish 10 mil paper.

File Format

We accept PDF and TIFF files. If you are using special characters or additional language fonts please send the file as a TIFF.
