Paper, Cardstock, and Finishes
Make your poster design come to life using our high-quality materials.
If you want something substantial yet lightweight, we offer 80 lb. paper that feels exactly like a page from a glossy magazine.
Our most popular option is 100 lb. paper. It’s the thickest paper option that lends a premium feel to any poster design.
Want to make the biggest impact? Choose 16 pt. cardstock, our heftiest option for printed posters.
If you need more durability for outdoor displays, we have weather-resistant PVC board or 20mil styrene.
For bulk posters, you can select the coating that works best for your project.
- Gloss coating is very versatile and is commonly used for majority of posters. It adds shine and saturation, so it’s best suited for prints with less text and more color.
- High-gloss UV coating is like glossy coating but shinier. Because of its reflective shine, we recommend that you choose this finish for full-color posters. Additionally, high-gloss UV protects your materials from wear and tear.
- Matte coating adds a soft, muted effect. This is best used for poster designs that need to avoid a reflective glare and emphasize detail over color. If your poster has dark colors and you’d like to frame it under glass, we recommend choosing matte coating.
Don’t forget to request for a free digital proof after placing an order! Before we print your custom poster, we’ll check your design for things like color mode, resolution, bleed, and trim.
Afterward, we’ll send you a PDF proof that shows how your printed posters will look. This process allows you to catch any errors and make revisions. Once we get your approval that the design is good to go, we’ll proceed with printing!

Who Can Benefit From Custom Posters?
With its high visibility and versatility, the poster has cemented its reputation as a classic marketing tool. Hanging even just one piece in any public space can significantly extend your reach.
Businesses that may benefit from using custom posters include:
Automotive — Car dealers promote automobiles using posters and include important features on the backside. Try ordering mounted posters for showrooms or popular areas with high foot traffic.
Travel and hospitality — Use large posters to print stunning scenery and tourist locations. Travel agencies often do this and display them prominently in their lobbies to entice people to travel more. Mounted posters also work for promoting events in hotels.
Photography — Take images that make you proud and turn them into posters. Whether or not you are a professional photographer, you can print your favorite images and display them at your home or in a gallery. We recommend using high-gloss UV for added definition.
Graphic design — Advertising and promotion posters have already been around since the 1870s. Use posters to create provoking campaigns that will encourage potential customers to follow your call to action.
Grocery stores — Posters are a no-fail approach to promoting new products and limited-time offers. Use bold colors and glossy paper so your shoppers will take notice.
Convenience stores — Just like grocery stores, convenience stores can also use posters for advertising, promoting discounts, and communicating store hours.

Poster Printing FAQ
What are the most popular sizes for posters?
11” x 17” is a popular, standard size for small posters. These resemble the size of a flyer, so it’s easy to tape to a bulletin board or on a street post.
24” x 36” works well for larger posters that need to be displayed in areas like malls with high foot traffic. This size works great for product ads and promotions in front of stores.
26” x 39” is as big as the movie posters in cinemas. These are great for ads in really crowded locations like festivals, parties, and public events.
What is the best paper for poster printing?
For posters printed on paper, we recommend choosing premium 100 lb. paper stock. It’s thicker with a more luxurious feel compared to standard copy paper. You can also choose 16 pt. cardstock for added durability. Finish with high-gloss UV coating to protect your posters from stains and scratches.
