The most popular poster printing sizes are A1 (841 x 594mm) and A2 (594 x 420mm), but custom sizes can also be supplied. In addition to printing posters, we also supply poster frames, also known as 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. To read more on shutter frames, please click HERE.
All our posters can be laminated only on one single side. We generally use two different printing processes for our poster printing, namely, Litho printing for larger quantities and digital printing for smaller numbers.
DIGITALLY PRINTED POSTERS
Orders of smaller quantities, usually 50 posters or less in A1 size or 70 posters in A2 size are usually printed digitally. The disadvantage of this process is that the cost per unit is more expensive on low quantities. However, on the positive side, the lead time is only 3 working days, compared to Litho printing which takes 5-7 working days. Digital posters are printed on 170gsm semi-gloss paper. A0 size posters cannot be printed using the Litho method, and thus will also be printed digitally.
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 different paper weights are required, please let us know in order to quote accordingly. There is no difference in price between semi-gloss and high-gloss paper. Additional costs on paper are determined by the weight or thickness of the paper and one can expect to pay around R1.50 more per m² for every additional 10gsm of paper. Therefore, the cost will be an additional 80c per A1 poster between 130gsm and 140gsm. For A2 posters the difference would be about 40c.
