What does ‘Short Run’ mean?

‘Short Run’ refers to the amount of posters you are having printed. If you only want a few posters then we call this a ‘Short Run’. If you are after a larger quantity and all the posters are the same design, then you would be better off selecting our ‘Long Run Posters’ option as this will normally work out cheaper.

How do you print your posters?

Posters up to A3 size are printed on our Xerox digital press.
Posters larger than A3 are printed on a large format inkjet printer to ensure the maximum levels of quality. We use professional standard inks which create bright and vibrant colours and are guaranteed to last for 100 years. Smaller posters can be printed on this machine if required, but it does increase the price.

Why are some papers not available for the size I want?

We print using a different machine depending on the size of the posters you need. If your posters are over A3 size, they have to be printed on our large format machine which prints using ink onto larger rolls of paper. For A3 size or smaller, they are normally printed on our Xerox digital press, which prints using toner onto a wide range of sheets. We can print smaller sizes on our large format printer, but the price is higher. Different papers and finishes are available for each machine, but our calculator will only show the papers that are available for the size you want.

Do you offer different paper weights for posters?

Yes we do. Our paper thicknesss range from 130gsm to 300gsm and are available in a range of finishes such as uncoated, gloss, pulpboard and silk, as well as full photo papers being available for larger posters. For more information on these please get in touch.

Can I have the posters printed both sides?

Yes, but for short runs this is only possible up to A3 size. Please contact us to request a quote for this.

Do your posters fit standard size frames?

Yes. As we print our posters at a range of industry standard sizes, there should be no problems getting them to fit in a frame. You can also choose any custom size.
