Marketing Tips

Posters are printed on one side and intended for display. They can be used for a number of applications, including the classic movie or event Poster. There are many other uses that typically take advantage of medium Poster sizes, such as in-store signage, product advertising, and information and directions. Consider Posters any time you want to convey the same information to everyone at a specific location.

Posters can be a great product for people to buy as souvenirs or art displays.

  • 8.5″ x 11″
  • 11″ x 17″

16pt C2S Gloss Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from heavy bookmarks or other products printed on a semi-rigid card stock.

This is our thickest stock and is coated on both sides. Because of its thickness, it is not ideal for folding.


14pt Gloss Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from presentation folders.

This thick and stiff stock is coated on both sides with a glossy finish.


14pt Uncoated Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from thick index cards, though the finish is much higher quality.

This is a very versatile stock. The uncoated finish is good when you don’t want a slick and shiny look, while the firm 14 Pt. stock folds precisely.


100# Gloss Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from standard business cards.

Stiffer than 100# Gloss Text, this glossy finish cover stock offers sharp folds and a sturdy product for a very professional result. This stock is coated on both sides.


100# Gloss Text

You may be familiar with this type of stock from the covers of many popular magazines like People and Time.

This paper strikes a balance between thickness and foldability, while the glossy finish on both sides gives your text a professional appearance.

AQ 1 Side

AQ is short for Aqueous Coating. This is a semi-gloss, environmentally friendly, water-based coating applied to the front, Back or Both sides of the printed piece. It provides additional gloss and protection, and it can be written on with a ballpoint pen.

4/0

Full color (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black as above) on the front and no printing on the back.

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
