Basic Product Info
Posters are printed full-colour one side. Although we can produce double-sided posters with no problem, its not commonly requested. There are also a multitude of options such as lamination, UV varnish, specialist inks, neon paper, and specialist/premium papers. If what you see is not listed, use the quote form, or get in touch if you need something more unique. For detailed information, visit this products’ information page.
A standard poster weight is 135gsm coated (gloss or silk). Although 115gsm is a little cheaper, its not enough to be worth listing; if your quantities are over 2,500 you may save a little, just use the quote form to enquire.
Again, 170gsm is a little more premium feeling and no problemm to produce, but its so much more expensive, we don’t list it currently.
Uncoated papers are certainly available, again, use the quote form although we shall be adding a full uncoated/offset/recycled section soon.
We print most posters lithographically, even in small quantities. Below 50 or so, your work may be printed digitally. We don’t use cheap laser printers, we use digital impression printers such as the Canon iGen and in many cases the quality of our digital printing is better than litho! Sadly its too expensive to use for high quantities in general terms.
Occasionally, items ordered at 135gsm in small quantities may be printed on 150gsm or even 170gsm for speed. If there is a particular reason you need to keep to a cheaper, flimsier paper weight (for example mailing costs) then you will generally be placing a large order, but do let us know if this presents an issue.
Templates for this product are available to download in the following standard sizes:
While we generally assume posters will be portrait, landscape templates are also available.
