What are Mounted Posters?

Mounted posters are poster prints made from a rigid material as opposed to a paper-based material, providing additional durability. They are perfect for propping up against a wall, resting on a display easel, or even hanging on a wall. Mounted posters can be created using two different materials; 5mm foam board or 3mm PVC plastic. The 5mm foam board is the more economic choice and provides a lightweight, vivid display. The 3mm PVC plastic is more durable and allows you to use your mounted poster in indoor or outdoor scenarios.

Mounted posters can be used as visual aids, business advertisements and promotions, directional or informative signage and more!

Which Mounted Poster Type Is Best for You?

Mounted Poster

Foam Board

Foam board mounted posters are designed to be both rigid and lightweight. Mounted poster prints on foam board have a paper face, providing a smooth printed finish for your poster. Foam board mounted posters are best used indoors.

Get Started

PVC (Plastic)

PVC (or plastic) mounted posters are a little heavier per square inch than foam board. With PVC your mounted poster will withstand even outdoor elements as the poster is directly printed onto the plastic surface. Although not as smooth as the foam board paper face, our high quality UV print process still provides excellent detail.

Display & Care

Displaying or hanging your mounted poster is easy and can be done in seconds. The easiest way to display a foam board or PVC mounted poster is to prop it up in a window or against a wall. You can also set them on shelves. For your convenience we offer two different styles of easels—one larger telescoping easel which can be used on the floor or on a table and an easel back option for smaller mounted posters (up to 24”x25”). If you want to hang your mounted poster on a wall there are multiple ways, but we recommend using 3M Command Strips (available for purchase with your order).

Mounted posters are easy to maintain and clean. For foam board mounted posters, gently wipe away dust and debris with a dry, non-abrasive cloth. PVC mounted posters can be gently washed with a damp cloth. If you have selected to have your mounted poster coated with a protective laminate, we recommend using a cloth with a small amount of citrus based cleaner or Dry Erase cleaner.

What’s the best way to hang or install a mounted poster?
Asked a year ago by Signs

This will depend upon the mounted poster you purchase. For mounted posters printed onto foam board, these are lightweight enough to hang with 3M Command Strips, hook-and-loop fasteners like Velcro, or you can simply display by propping up on an easel. An easel is also a possibility for mounted posters printed onto PVC plastic, of course, but you have other choices, too: You can also drill holes into the poster and then use screws or bolts to mount the sign to the surface of your choice; you can hang with string, rope, or bungee cord; and you can utilize an adhesive to glue your mounted poster to a surface.

How should I clean my mounted poster?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Mounted posters on foam board can be cleaned by gently wiping with a dry cloth. If you’ve added a dry-erase laminate, just wipe the surface using a non-abrasive cloth (use a small amount of citrus based cleaner or isopropyl alcohol when needed). Mounted posters on plastic PVC can be cleaned by using a damp cloth and mild soap.

How should I store my mounted poster?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Store your mounted poster flat, and in a cool and dry environment. Avoid storing it in a place that will have extreme cold, heat, or humidity. Also avoid setting anything heavy on top of your poster to avoid possibly bending or creasing it (this is especially critical for foam board posters).

How accurate is the print to the digital file? I have a design with a printed border, and when printed by another company, the border was shifted partly off the edge in one direction because it wasn't positioned accurately on the material
Asked 4 months ago by Larry

You can definitely upload your artwork in full bleed, so we can make sure that no important elements will be compromised during the cutting process.  The artwork needs to be built to the final trim size plus 1/8″ bleed on each side. Also, when generating the file into the proper format, do not use any crop or printer marks, as these will increase the dimensions of the design file.

Asked 5 months ago by
