What Weight of Paper is Best for Posters?

Brochure PaperThickness

100# Gloss Text (5pt) This shiny and lustrous coated sheet is excellent for full color printing making photographs stand out and look rich and beautiful. It is about 25% thicker and heavier than 80# text, giving a more upscale, sharp and appealing look with a higher end feel. This premium paper features high opacity for two-sided printing that will have minimal show through the opposite side. *Recommended*

Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant.

Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text.

Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.

What is the typical poster size?

The most common poster sizes you’ll see are 11x17 and 18x24. If the sizes above don’t quite fit your needs, sizes 12x18, 16x20, and 17x22 are also available to print through PrintingCenterUSA. The poster size that you choose depends on what you are showcasing, how many posters you need, your budget, and what your desired impact is going to be. For more information, and how to choose the perfect poster size for your project, see our blog post Standard Poster Sizes.

How to flatten a poster?

If you have a rolled poster, you should roll your poster out onto a flat surface, like a table. Then take some heavy books (like dictionaries) and place on the four corners and center of your poster. Leave your poster on the table for at least 24 hours to have a flat poster.

Do you offer poster design services?

Great color, true-to-our-file printing. I would recommend these posters to everyone. Our company's only wish is that there was a recycled paper option to print on.

fantastic service and product as always. A caution to let you know that transport and delivery by UPS could be with a bit more care or the packaging should account for rough travel. edges of both boxes were very beat up and a short stack of the posters in each box had edges bent. Borderline to complain with you since these are sold, but will not pursue. Please try better care in transport. Hope to reorder soon.
