Posters FAQ

Are they printed single-sided or double-sided?
Our posters are printed full color single-sided.

How will the different paper choices affect the final product?
Paper choices will affect the weight, thickness, and shine (coating) of your posters.

What’s the difference between each paper choice?
You can choose between either a gloss or dull paper stock. Gloss stocks have a shiny, glossy appearance whereas dull stocks have a more flat, matte appearance. Next, decide on what weight/thickness you would like. Text weight paper is a lighter weight paper, similar to what you would find on the inside pages of a magazine. Cover weight paper is thicker and heavier, similar to what you would find on the cover of a magazine. The higher the number, the heavier the weight of the paper stock.

What’s the most popular paper for posters?
100# gloss text and 80# gloss cover are our most popular papers for posters.

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
