Before sending a poster to us for printing, please:

  • proofread your poster. We do not offer free second printings in case of typos discovered afterwards.
  • consider using white or light backgrounds. While dark backgrounds may look great on a computer screen, dark colours may not translate well to paper due to the amount of ink used.
  • check the size of the poster. Our plotter can only cover 60" on any side. At least one side, must be 60" or less.
  • save your poster in PDF format.
  • Click here for Poster Printing Guidelines.

We do not offer lamination services or do 11 x 17 printing.
