Although there is no limit to the sizes for Poster Printing, the most popular sizes are A1 (841mm x 594mm) and A2 (594mm x 420mm). In addition to printing posters, we can also supply you with poster frames (shutter frames) and poster stands. These are available in standard poster sizes from A4 to A0. These frames are customisable on larger orders and can be manufactured to your specifications.

All our posters can also be laminated – please ask us to quote you.
We generally use 2 different printing processes for our Poster Printing, Litho Printing for larger quantities and Digital Printing for smaller numbers.
DIGITALLY PRINTING POSTERS
When you order smaller quantities of posters (usually 50 posters or less in A1 size or 70 posters in A2 size) we print them digitally. The disadvantage of this process is that the cost per unit is more expensive on low quantities, but on the upside your lead time is only 3 working days compared to the 7 – 10 working days it will take to do Litho printing. We print our digital posters on 170gsm semi-gloss paper. A0 size posters cannot be printed using the Litho method, and thus will also be printed digitally.
We also offer a Poster Block Mounting Service. Prices on these will depend on the size and number of posters you want to block. We have minimum quantities on our Blocking Service, no less than 10 in A2 size and no less than 7 in A1 size. If you require blocking for less posters, we will be happy to refer you to a company than will be able to assist you.
LITHO POSTER PRINTING
When you order large quantities of posters, we will most probably print them using the Litho printing method. Litho printing is done on 130gsm gloss paper that is generally accepted as a practical weight by most clients. If you have different requirements on paper weight, please let us know to quote you.
There is no difference in price between semi-gloss and high-gloss paper. Additional costs on paper is determined by the weight or thickness of the paper and you can expect to pay around R 1.50 + more per m2 for every additional 10gsm of paper. This comes down to paying an additional 80c per A1 poster between 130gsm and 140gsm. For A2 posters the difference would be about 40c.
