We print posters to all the standard 'A' sizes or any custom size you wish up to 105cm (shortest dimension) by any length, onto 180gsm paper (can be laminated/encapsulated), Lightweight cloth, Photo satin, Canvas or Self-adhesive vinyl, inks are fade-resistant.

We can also mount onto 5mm foamboard.


  • 180gsm paper is ideal for local conferences or one off posters, or laminated/encapsulated for robustness if for multiple use.  We also sell plastic, extendable tubes to transport posters.


  • Lightweight cloth is perfect if you're travelling to a conference, the print is as defined and bright as paper, yet being on cloth it can be folded into your bag to transport.  Avoiding leaving a poster tube on a plane, or paying for an extra bag!


  • Photo satin for a photographic finish, ideal for framing.


  • Canvas to be mounted on a wooden frame ready for hanging, we print and will mount to a frame you supply.


  • Self-adhesive vinyl for directly fixing to a wall for semi permanent display (as used by museums such as the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge)


  • Encapsulation is similarly up to 105cm (shortest dimension) by any length on 75 microfilm matt or gloss finish, or upto 75cm wide on 125 microfilm gloss.

File formats for your poster

The preferred file for your poster is pdf, this is the safest option of your poster printing as it appears on screen. Powerpoint and Word 'Save as', Adobe Indesign and Illustrator 'Export' and under compression choose not to downsample images.  Things to avoid in creation, copy & paste, png images. Preferably create your file at the size to be printed, but can scale your file to fit the size you require.

If possible please identify your file with your name (NAME.pdf).



We can print any of the 'A' sizes listed below, or custom sizes up to 105cm (shortest dimension) by any length.  If you would like more information on the sizes, please see our paper size guide.
