Poster printing, also referred to as wide format printing, can be done on any size bigger than A3 (420mm x 297mm). Posters are printed on a wide format printer that can print A2 (594mm x 420mm), A1 (841mm x 594mm), A0 (1194mm x 841mm) and we can also do custom sizes. Different substrates are used for different projects, depending on the needs of a specific client.
The standard grammages (weights) we use is 165gsm matt or 175gsm gloss media. We use 80gsm to print plans or architectural drawings. Architectural and engineering firms can mail their plan prints to us in PDF format and they will be printed in no time, ready to be collected in a relatively short time, depending on quantity, of course.
If you would like the posters to be used in a boardroom or stylish corporate environment, a matt paper would be suggested, or even a matt lamination. Lightning in the boardroom may reflect on glossy media or a gloss lamination.
If the image that needs to be printed is a photograph, it is advised that it be printed on glossy media. The print quality is superb.
Once the images are printed, they can be laminated either with gloss or matt. We can laminate from very small size up to 1000mm x 2400mm.
Images for printing can be emailed or, if the file sizes are too big, a transferring platform like “WeTransfer” can be used.
Once the posters are printed, they can be delivered (subject to print quantities and only within the Johannesburg area) or they can be collected from our offices in Douglasdale. Alternatively we can use our courier service for a nominal fee.
