Anyone have an online print shop they recommend for printing large format posters? Talking about 3 foot by 4 foot size. Most places want to do a minimum run, but I only need two or so of each.

I am doing them in house now, but I hate tiling!

Re: Posters...

you are better off just going to a print shop like Kinkos or CopyCopy and have them print your 2 posters for you. yes you'll pay a lot more...but then again, you're only printing 2 of them.


That's like someone coming in and asking for an awesome discount if they buy 2 tans in your base bed from you. Will you bend over backwards for that kind of business?

Re: Posters...

I know where you are coming from, but there are shops that do small runs because they are setup for it.

The problem being size, most small shops cant run large format AND be willing to do a small run.

I used to operate printing presses, so I know how it goes. I may just have to buy a large format color laser write to go with my other color laser writer. Tiling would still be needed, but less cuts.

Re: Posters...

You're looking at about $5 sqft

Here is a link, a 36" x 48" poster, semi gloss or high gloss is around $85 ea if you buy 2 so around $180 total.

http://www.largeformatposters.com/Se...s-Posters.html

WOOOOWZAS...

I looked at a few websites and the going rate is $5.00 a sqft for a poster.

Re: Posters...

I knew I should have picked up that BIG phaser printer. Went with the Phaser 6180 for duplexing. Works great up to 8 by 14 inch, but thats it. Thats what I tile off of now.

I do not do ink jet! lol
