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.
