We provide a large format printing service for student, academic and research posters.

Standard academic poster sizes are: A0 (841x1189mm), A1 (594x841mm) and A2 (420x594mm), but they can be produced to any size up to 1250mm wide and as long as 15 metres.

Posters are printed onto heavy weight poster paper as standard, but other paper is available including:

– satin finish photo paper for photographic use

– white cotton fabric (useful for overseas travel)

– exhibition vinyl.

Finishing options for paper prints only:

– laminating (to the front image only)

– encapsulating (covering both sides of the paper)

We have a two working day turnaround for large format printing, so please allow enough time to send us your file.
