Our posters are printed on Plain or Satin finish paper to give a high-quality look and feel to your posters. Your documents are then carefully packaged in protective packaging to ensure they reach you in perfect condition.
Lamination is used to describe a very thin layer of film, approximately 30 microns (0.03mm) thick, which is applied to the across surface of the poster to protect the print and enhance the look, like you would see on the covers of a book. Although we only print posters single sided, we always laminate both sides to ensure maxium protection and durability. Please note that when waterproof documents are required, we recommend that encapsulation is used where the plastic coating is thicker, approximately 300 microns (0.30mm), and it extends over the edges of the document.
Lamination makes your poster more colourful and vibrant. In addition, it reduces reduces normal wear and tear extends the life of the product. If you plan on using your poster for an extended period for time, we recommended that you have it laminated.
We offer Matt Lamination for a soft, flat effect or Gloss Lamination when looking for something shiny.
Here’s a quick checklist for setting your artwork up for poster printing:
- The resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork should least 150 dpi, for best results we recommend 300 dpi minimum
- Your file is a PDF, PNG, JPEG. The maximum upload size we can accept on the website is 1GB.
- Size of artwork is ideally 1:1 or it will be resized for printing.
- Please provide a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design, if possible, or just have our system create bleed for you automatically.
