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 Posters

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.

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
– Hoardings
– 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.

What are posters?

Posters have a long history as an efficient medium for displaying both text and graphics. They are frequently utilized in public settings to promote services, products, events, or ideas. Additionally, they can serve as fantastic art and décor in your office or house. Custom posters from Printing New York feature the greatest print quality on archival photo paper (available in glossy, matte, or metallic finishes) while keeping the economic value associated with printed posters. Additionally, they are available in practically any custom size, allowing you to build the ideal poster for your particular requirements.

What types of posters do you print?

Glossy Posters:
Each print on glossy posters is vivid and saturated. The glossy finish creates a smooth, texture-free surface that brings out the finest elements in your design. Glossy posters look great anywhere but really come to life in low-light environments, such as those found indoors.

Matte Posters:
Matte posters are comparable to glossy posters in terms of weight and thickness, but have a little more roughness behind the print. Additionally, they resist fingerprints and smearing. Matte posters include vivid colors that are slightly more muted than glossy posters. Their best exhibition place is in a bright, well-lit area.

Metallic Posters:
Metallic posters, while less prevalent, offer the most accurate color reproduction of all our poster sheets. Metallic posters have a distinct metallic sheen and, like glossy posters, excel in bringing out the rich, brilliant colors in each design. Metallic posters, whether used for promotion or as a workspace decorative item, are certain to attract notice.

How should I care for my custom posters?

Placing or hanging your poster is simple and takes only a few minutes. While there are numerous methods for hanging posters, one of the simplest is to use 3M Command Strips. These are available as an addition to your poster. Additionally, you may purchase a front-loading snap frame in various sizes for a more refined and professional poster display finish. We have frames available in the following sizes: 8″x10″, 11″x17″, and 16″x20″. Discover more convenient methods for hanging posters in our page on how to hang posters.

To take care of your poster, gently wipe the surface with a dry (non-abrasive) towel. Avoid direct contact with water or other sources of moisture. Posters can be carefully stored by rolling them loosely. Avoid creasing by not folding or stacking heavy objects on top of them.

How do your posters compare to the ones on my wall?

When I think of “posters,” I’m reminded of the ones in the lobby of my local movie theater — are yours similar to those?
Not precisely. Typically, theater posters are produced in a single size, printed on non-archival paper, and printed using classic offset methods (which are excellent for generating large quantities of the same product – but cannot be utilized for one-off, unique posters, signage, or other items). Printing New York, on the other hand, produces our posters on archival paper and in a range of sizes (see below). Additionally, because we print digitally, we can customize each poster — allowing each poster to have its own unique, personalized message if desired.

Is there a distinction between these posters and the cardboard or mounted posters that you sell?
Yes, there are three distinct poster types. The standard posters on this page are photo-printed on archival paper in a variety of finishes (gloss, matte, or metallic) and are available in sizes up to 96″ x 48.” As the name implies, our cardstock posters are printed on 24-pt paper — a material that is robust enough to stand on its own and be shown on an easel. They are available single- or double-sided, in sizes up to 94″ x 46″, and are printed with UV inks. Meanwhile, our mounted posters are directly printed with UV inks onto 5mm foamboard or 3mm PVC plastic (sintra); these, too, are available in single- or double-sided sizes up to 94″ x 46″.

What method of printing do you use for your posters?
We print onto archival glossy, matte, or metallic paper using our top-of-the-line digital picture printer (see below). Our printer is a high-resolution film processor capable of printing continuous-tone images up to 96″ x 48″. Simply put, these bespoke posters feature superior print quality.

Is there a selection of papers available?
Yes, we offer three different types of paper: glossy, matte, and shiny. All three are archival-quality papers that provide exceptional picture clarity and vibrant color reproduction, as well as a level of permanence that non-archival papers just cannot match. Our glossy and matte sheets are.008 inches thick, while our metallic paper is.010 inches thick.

How can you distinguish between a glossy, matte, and metallic finish?
A glossy surface is brilliant, reflecting, and conveys an air of “valuability”; it works particularly well with high-contrast photographs and in low-light situations. A matte coating produces softer, more muted colors and helps prevent fingerprint smudges; it also works well in bright light due to the lack of reflections. As the name implies, a metallic finish produces a metallic, pearl-like impression, which enhances the vibrancy of colors; bear in mind, however, that this finish requires enough lighting to achieve the full metallic impact.
