The largest size available on our website is 40” x 60” which stands 5 foot tall. If you would like to discuss poster printing on a larger scale or a custom size that we don’t offer on the website, please give us a call on 01702 460047 or email email@example.com.

We don’t offer either of these options online at the moment, but our customer service team are able to quote for encapsulated posters which are laminated in a plastic wrap with a 5mm overhang, similar to an office laminator. This makes the poster weatherproof for a period of time and means that it can be used outside.
Backlit posters are used a printed on 200gsm light box film and are effective when placed in a light box frame. The frame is powered from the mains, illuminating LED bulbs which shine light through the poster to make it really stand out.
Printing posters on gloss paper can have striking results. Colours stand out and the shiny finish adds a premium feel. However, you should be aware that glare from strong light sources can compromise your message, especially in outdoor locations.
Silk paper is a practical and popular choice for poster printing. It adds a mild sheen so that the finish is not entirely matt, but overcomes much of the glare that can come with gloss.
Bond paper is a matt alternative which eliminates glare and won’t mark smudge under your fingers.
We also print posters on Day Glo paper in a choice of fluorescent Green, Orange, Pink or Yellow. These are a brilliant choice when you’re displaying large format posters in an outdoor environment. As long as you’re not precious about preserving brand colourways, Day Glo posters are particularly effective when promoting events. The simple use of black text to communicate date, time and place will leave your audience in no doubt about how to attend.
In terms of paper thickness, industry standard paper weights for posters sized A2 and larger are 130gsm for gloss or silk, 110 for Bond and 100 for Day Glo, but on A3 and A4, we can offer up to 350gsm. On smaller posters like these, Brown Kraft or Pulp papers can offer a textured alternative for when the poster is designed to be encountered up close.
Light Box posters must be printed on the appropriate Light Box film as specified by the light box manufacturer. LightBox film posters supplied by Solopress are suitable for use in light boxes purchased from Solopress.
First, let’s look at what those dimensions are for poster sizes:
|A4||210 x 297 mm||8.3 x 11.7 in|
|A3||297 x 420 mm||11.7 x 16.5 in|
|A2||420 x 594 mm||16.5 x 23.4 in|
|A1||594 x 841 mm||23.4 x 33.1 in|
|A0||841 x 1189 mm||33.1 x 46.8 in|
|A3 strip||594 x 210mm||23.4 x 8.3 in|
|A2 strip||841mm x 297mm||33.1 x 11.7 in|
|A1 strip||1,189mm x 420mm||46.8 x 16.5 in|
|B2||707mm x 500mm||19.7 x 27.8 in|
|B1||1,000 x 707mm||27.8 x 39.4 in|
|B0||1,400 x 1,000mm||39.4 x 55.7 in|
|20x30||508 x 762mm||20 x 30 in|
|30x40||762 x 1,016mm||30 x 40 in|
|60x40||1,016 x 1,524mm||40 x 60 in|
With those sizes in mind, it’s worth considering the space where the poster will be displayed. That will have a bearing on both size and design elements such as text size.
For a notice board, A4 or A3 may well be sufficient, and any larger may take up too much space.
A2 is a good middle ground for a poster that’s effective indoors, but can be large enough to hold its own in larger spaces.
For a large shop window, many retailers use 60x40 as standard.
A1 and A0 are typically used for outdoor advertising. For hoardings, images are usually made up of a composite of 20x30 posters – i.e. a 48-sheet hoarding would feature 48 20x30 sheets.

If you’re exploring poster printing as a way of producing merchandise for resale, you might sell them in tubes and never have to worry about display at all. If it’s a short run of arty prints, you might even wish to frame them.
However, if you’re printing posters for marketing purposes, then thoughts about how and where to display your posters should be integrated into your planning about what goals you want your posters to achieve and what size you need them to be.
In retail areas and other public spaces where posters are in steady rotation, you might wish to consider clip frames, or snap frames where posters can be easily updated.
For window displays, poster panels can provide a surface where posters can be stapled in place. When posting smaller posters on bulletin boards, you can use drawing pins.
Paste is still used to apply posters to billboards and other likely outdoor surfaces but be sure not to fall foul of fly-posting laws.
Remember, eye-level is always the optimum height for a poster!
