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, will produce them in our high-quality printers and the posters will have vibrant colors and high resolution provided that your file has it.

Are you letting the community know about an event?

Are you promoting a product, event, party, gathering, sale, race, marathon, community event, solidarity meeting, promoting healthy food, fatty food..... it can all be done through posters! Nothing beats posters when announcing to in-location attendants

There are a million reasons to print posters for the workplace! Are you sharing an event such a Happy Hour, or maybe there will be vendors coming to your office and offer you a mini-trade-show event A poster makes communications fast, clear, and inexpensive!! Everyone will be on notice!

Make it easy for others to follow a step-by-step action

Do you need to share the steps needed to operate a device? (when everyone keeps asking the same question)? A poster is perfect!

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.
  • For business use, there are more options that include mounting on foamboard and using an easel to keep it in display where needed.

Quick Turnaround & Good Customer Service. I had a very last minute job and ColorCopiesUSA was able to complete my prints quickly. They made sure to communicate when they had a question about my print files to ensure I was getting exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend. Thank you!

Color Copiers made me an awesome table cloth for trade shows and when I mailed it home after a trade show the post office or ups lost it and blamed each other so I had them make me another tablecloth.

Great Service. I had questions so I called after I placed my order and they were super helpful. They sent emails for approval and I received my order much faster than I expected. Qualify is great - print is a little small but that is because of the file type I sent them.

Very Good Experience. Quality was very good. Price was much better than others I checked - even with shipping. I made a mistake on my shipping selection on my order and they were very helpful in getting it corrected and the job sent out quickly.

Their Mission Is To Never Have a Dissatisfied Customer. Now that we're retired, my wife and I have been doing quite a bit of local and foreign traveling. After each trip, we put together a trip report to document what we did and what we saw. We've tried a number of local and web based printers but have never been very satisfied. Unfortunately, we end up with whatever we get. Frankly, the printed document we received back from Colorcopiesusa didn't please us either. I sent them a note explaining my dissatisfaction and to my surprise, I immediately received a note back telling me that their mission is to never to have a dissatisfied customer and that they would be willing to do a reprint based upon the details of my note. In a day (or two at the most) I received digital images of the new pages of my document with a note asking me to review them and give my OK. The photos were lighter and the colors truer per my request. I received the reprinted document a few days later, and I'm pleased to report, the document was really nice. Now I know what instructions to give with my next order, and I will most definitely have Colorcopiesusa do the next printing.

A++ to Color Copies. I've used Color Copies for years. Their price for the quality of product can't be beat. The quality and clarity of photos is superior. They are fast too!
