Photo quality posters

Matt Posters

Matt posters are especially suited for academic and scientific presentations where a lot of text is involved. These matt posters have no surface reflection which makes them ideal for exhibiting your work in highly lit areas such as conference & exhibition halls, art galleries etc.  High quality photo grade posters printed onto a 180gsm matt paper. 

Satin Posters

High quality photo grade posters printed onto a 190gsm satin (semi-gloss media). There is very little dot gain on satin photo paper, so printing is of the highest quality. Satin photo paper is especially suited when there are large areas of solids in the artwork and for the printing of large photographs. Ideal if you want to accept no compromises and require the highest possible quality.

Foldable fabric posters

Printed onto 115gsm smooth matt tight weave cotton material, these fabric posters print in high quality similar to our photo quality posters.

The main advantage of fabric posters is that they can be folded and stored in luggage for transport purposes. These posters can even be ironed to take out the creases!

Canvas posters

A photo quality cotton blend 250gsm canvas material is used for these posters, which has a slight textured feel. This canvas poster can be lightly folded to store in suit cases for travelling purposes. Some people prefer the canvas poster to the fabric poster as the material is thicker and more substantial.

The main use for printing a poster onto canvas material is to stretch it onto wooden canvas bars or to frame the poster. We can print your artwork to poster size on canvas material and can also stretch onto wooden frames to give you a completed canvas, ready for hanging on to walls. Please look at our canvas section for further information.

Clear film and backlit film posters

We can print posters onto clear acetate film material. Typical uses are for overlays onto other posters and for art exhibitions.

We can also print onto back lit polyester material for use in restaurant and take-away light boxes. This material is slightly opaque so as the tube light source in the lightbox is not visible. You only see smooth even light on the poster.
