Share it now in a poster. It's quick and easy
It's our human nature. We like to share. It could be that you want to have those pictures with friends that matter to you! They are who you care about! You want to have them there with you at all times, hanging from your wall, or it might be that your sports league is hosting a fundraiser and somehow, you want people to show up and contribute!
Sharing gives us a sense of involvement that nourishes our souls.
You are ready to get a poster, so let's dive into it:
In terms of the sizes offered: You'll find two sizes here.
12x18 posters are probably the most popular (comparing 11"x17" to 12"x18") because their cost does not change drastically when compared to the 11"x17", but you get so much more printed area! (it is about 15% larger!)
Where Would you Use Posters?
If you intend to use them as bedroom decor, or for an advertising campaign, you might want to choose different stocks on which you would print them. For business purposes, think which one is more cost-effective, but for your own enjoyment, we suggest that you choose the one that you like the most. In any case, ColorCopiesUSA.com will produce them in our high-quality printers and the posters will have vibrant colors and high resolution provided that your file has it.

The beauty of smaller posters is you get them as needed!, And what is even better, it is easy to tweak them so that the next time you need them, they'll look even better!
Suggestions for substrates to print posters on:
For your bedroom: If you are printing posters for your bedroom, you want them to look special. We suggest that you choose 100# glossy paper.
Advertising: If there is advertising on a poster that will get displayed at local shopes, indoors, any of the uncoated or glossy papers will work. But if you need the posters to be rigid, 14pt could be your best option.
Rigid: You can have the posters mounted on foamboard with an easel if they'll have to sit on a countertop.
Outdoor posters will be better served by synthetic paper substrate. They'll bear the rain and wind without damage.
Your posters will attract eye-balls if they are set properly. Here are some recommendations for your file preparation

A BIT OF HISTORY: When did modern-day posters start?
Posters have been produced since the early days of humanity. The substrates were not paper at the time but carving on stone.
Reproduction of posters started when lithography was invented, in 1796. Since then, new technology made it possible to evolve in terms of the sizes, the color palette, and the substrates used. Today's digital world makes it easy, possible and cheap to print complex posters and have one of a kind.
- Small posters help us to share in an easy way
- We don't need to print hundreds of posters, we can start with one, or print thousands. There is no limit to what your creativity asks for
- If the use of the poster is for decor, just choose the paper that you find fancier for you.
