What are your cardstock posters made of?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Our cardstock posters are made out of a durable, 24pt cardstock that is pliable enough to be rolled up yet rigid enough to stand up against an easel. Their lightweight form factor makes them ideal for use in presentations on the go. Unlike the printed movie or celebrity posters you find at a retail store, these large cardstock prints are made of a thicker material that is more durable and lasts longer. In addition, the UV ink printing process will leave a semi-gloss sheen as opposed to the high-gloss finish usually seen on other posters.

If you are looking for a more traditional poster, we now offer standard posters in two different finishes: glossy and matte. We also have mounted posters for an even longer-lasting rigid poster.

Can I create my cardstock poster to have a different shape than just rectangular or square?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Absolutely! Cardstock posters give you the ability to select between multiple shape options for your large print including: square/rectangle, rounded corners (¼" or 1" radius), circle/oval, custom (previously known as or sometimes referred to as contour), or custom with border (previously known as or sometimes referred to as halo). Simply select which option you prefer in the quick start options menu or in the design tool!

How thick are cardstock poster? Do you offer different thickness options?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
Our 24 point cardstock posters measure .024" thick, which is about the thickness of 6 sheets of copy paper. These are thicker and more durable than the posters you find at retail stores, with a semi-gloss finish, as opposed to the high-gloss of celebrity posters.
How durable is the poster? Will cardstock signs bend?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Our cardstock posters are durable enough to stand up by themselves against an easel or similar display, but they can still be rolled up when you need to transport them. To make sure your poster continues to last, it is important not to bend or crease them in any way, as doing so will damage your poster. If you are looking for a more rigid material, consider opting for a mounted poster.

What sizes do you offer? What is the maximum and minimum size you offer?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Our large cardstock prints can be ordered to any custom size as small as 4"x4" and as large as 94"x46".

What are some common or standard poster sizes?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
Many of our customers order posters sized at 18"x24". Other popular sizes include 11"x17", 18"x30", 20"x20", 24"x36", 30"x65" and sizes up to 46"x90". While common sizes are quite useful, cardstock poster printing at allows you to order nearly any sizes you desire.
My design is really detailed and contains a number of colors. Will this increase my cost?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Nope! All of our posters are printed using a 4-color, CMYK process, so whether your design has one color or one hundred colors, you won’t be charged any extra!

Is it possible to make my cardstock sign double sided?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

Absolutely, all of our posters can be printed on both sides if desired. In the design tool, under “Options,” select “Two Sides Same” if you’d like your cardstock print to have the same design on both sides, or “Two Sides Different” to upload or create separate designs for each side.

How much do you charge for shipping?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

We are happy to offer free shipping for orders over $99 for any of our non-rigid signs, as well as rigid signs under 36” inch. Any order that requires freight shipping will be excluded from free shipping. If your order for posters is over $99, we’ll cover the shipping!

What is the lifespan of your cardstock posters?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
With proper care and maintenance, your cardstock poster can last up to 2 years. It is important to use your poster only indoors and not to expose it to any liquids or dirt, as exposure to moisture and dust will cause the poster to break down.
