Fabric Poster Printing
Fabric poster printing is available now at Printing New York. Fabric posters are an exciting alternative to paper posters that allow for wrinkle free rolling and extra protection from scratching and tearing. They are popular with scientific printing requirements as well as businesses that travel to trade shows who want to be able to re-use the same posters again and again. Although more expensive than paper posters, they are light enough to put in a bag and travel, but still provide robust protection for your posters from the elements and wrinkles.
Wheatpaste (also known as flour paste, or simply paste) is a liquid gel or glue made from wheat flour or starch and water. Since ancient times it has been used in various arts and crafts such as bookbinding, decoupage, gluing and paper swords. In modern times it has been used as a glue for posters and paper inscriptions on walls. Like wallpaper paste, it is possible to make paste from raw wheat flour, mixing approximately equal portions of flour and water and heating it until the mixture thickens. Wallpaper paste is the ideal combination for wild laying. It mixes easily, adheres to almost all surfaces and can be applied quickly and easily with a brush. Wheatpaste posters are commonly used in ‘wild posting’ marketing campaigns.
Also known as fly postings, wild posting posters are a popular and effective form of self-promotion. Displayed in strategically chosen places throughout the city, on walls, fences or posts, they capture the attention of passers-by and quickly spread the word about your next event, concert or promotion. A well-made wild posting is informative, reaches out to people and can be the keystone to your next marketing campaign’s success.
There are 4 popular poster sizes used in large format poster printing. These are typically 11″x17″ (small), 18″x24″ (medium) and 24″x36″, 27″x39″ (large). Across the world, these are commonly referred to as the international standard poster size.

How to create a poster
Say it loud and fast. The key to good poster design is a clear, easy-to-read message. A short, quick headline is often all you need. Although “SALE” is an extreme example of this, often found in shop windows, there’s a chance you’ll have to think a little more about your poster. Remember that if your message is read for more than a few seconds, it will not be read. The time it takes to get a big headline is the time that is very well spent.
How to choose images and graphics for your posters
The images, like the text, should be exciting and dazzling. Always store images in CMYK color mode and use only high resolution photographs – ideally 300 dpi in the size of the artwork. For graphics, try to use vector files whenever possible. Photos are made of pixels. The more you zoom in, the more pixels you become and the more blurred your image will be. Vector graphics occupy some memory, and you can enlarge them as you see them without compromising their quality.
What is the poster printed on?
Posters are printed on various materials, from strong paper to vinyl, depending on where they will be used. Internal posters are often printed on 170 gsm thick poster paper. Heavy photographic satin paper is used where you want the colors to really stand out and the images to look as sharp as possible.
Outdoor posters are printed on tear-resistant, waterproof paper for durability in all conditions. There are also vinyl stickers. You have a wide range of choices, so whether you’re working on a limited budget or printing bulk, there’s a poster paper for every application.
Where are posters used?
Posters are used everywhere. Spend the night, go shopping, take a walk, or even go to the bathroom in your area and you will definitely see the posters. Typical poster locations include:
– Advertising panels
– Showcases and interiors
– Bars, clubs and restaurants
– Company Facilities
– Events and concert venues
The most wonderful thing about poster advertising is that people see the posters whether they want to or not. They don’t have to open a magazine or turn on the TV. The posters are already around us.
