Poster Printing Pretoria & Fourways
Although there is no one standard size for poster printing, the most common poster sizes are A1 (841mm x 594mm) and then also A2 (594mmx 420mm). We also supply poster frames (shutter frames and poster stands), to read more click here.
Posters can also be laminated, please email your specifications so that we can quote you on this. Posters can also be presented very neatly by displaying them in an aluminium shutter frame, which is available in all standard poster sizes from A4 to A0.
We mainly make use of 2 different processes when it comes to poster printing, namely digital and litho printing.
Digitally Printed Posters
When posters are ordered in low quantities, for example less than 30 posters in the case of A1 and 60 posters in the case of A2, we make use of the digital printing process. The downfall of this is that as a rule it is more expensive to print low quantities, but the pro being that the lead time is about 3 working days. This is quite a bit faster than the 5 – 7 working days it takes to print posters using the litho printing method. We print these digital posters on 170 gsm semi-gloss poster paper. Since we are unable to print A0 posters using the Litho method, if you require this size we can offer you the digitally printed method. If you are in need of a custom size poster print the only limitation is the width of our printer which is 1.2m wide.
We also offer poster block mounting, send us an email if you would like a price for this.
Litho Printed Posters
if you need a large number of poster printed we would most probably use Litho priniting. In this case we do the printing on 130 gsm gloss paper, unless you specify differently. There is no difference in price between semi-gloss and high gloss paper. What makes a difference in the price is the thickness of the paper, you can expect to pay 80c + per square meter more for every extra 10gr of paper. Thus on A1 posters, the price difference between 130g and 140g posters would be around 40c per poster. In the case of A2 posters, there will be about 20c per poster difference.
