Printing Info & Specs
The color vibrancy and paper quality of our cheap and discount large poster printing are spectacular and unmatched at these price levels. Two versatile media choices include satin photo gloss and photo matte. We specifically tailored these choices for movie posters, gallery exhibits, museums, large photography, photo enlargements and giant artwork of any assortment. Our museum-like quality poster prints have an archival rating of over 200 years.
Why is our large poster printing better?
Our giclee printing method using wide format inkjet printers allows us to reach colors and brightness beyond the limitations of offset and solvent methods.
We only use officially licensed Canon ink. Many companies utilize non-branded ink to save on costs, but this can degrade the integrity of color accuracy.
By using smart technologies and instituting high standards of internal quality control, our posters print in an optimal environment.
Print multiple files
With large poster printing, each individual poster can be different artwork. Unfortunately, the "art upload" button only accepts one file. If your order will be multiple files, please email the artwork or send via file sharing application like Dropbox.
More media options are available
- Vinyl and longer sizes are available on our banners page.
- Canvas is available on our canvas page.
- Watercolor is available in the fine art printing area.
- Panoramic sizes offer longer size options.
- Mounted posters on gator or foam board.
- Backlit film for prints in light boxes.
Turnaround (Business Days)
Turnaround time begins once artwork is approved and properly prepared for production.
Printkeg offers 1 or 2-day turnaround options for large posters, panoramic prints, and photo enlargements.
Digital proofs, art concerns, and quantity splits can increase turnaround, but our staff works diligently to keep orders on schedule.
Sending art to us
Artwork can be uploaded and sent to us through the above form. However, if your large poster file is very large (20MB or over), please send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via file sharing app such as Dropbox, Google Drive or any other service of your choice. Also, be sure and provide us the order number.
Digital proofs are optional. If a digital test is vital, please let us know in the "Messages / Deadlines" area, and we can usually send one within 6 - 8 business hours ($5 per artwork). Digital proofs are useful for proofreading purposes and visualizing the bleed area.
Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding one extra day. Turnaround begins once you approve artwork for production.
By default, we review bleed, resolution, and size for all artwork before printing. If problems arise that we cannot quickly fix ourselves, a staff artist will contact you or email a PDF proof demonstrating related concerns. Our primary goal is to ensure you are delighted with the final prints.
Many large poster sizes are available
To better serve a wide range of industries, we print many convenient sizes for large custom posters including 16 X 20, 18 X 24, 20 X 30, 24 X 36, 27 X 40 and 36 X 48. Other sizes are also available, and we welcome custom poster sizes. Please call our office to discuss your project further.
All posters are full bleed
All large format prints are considered full bleed or "edge to edge." Some refer to this as borderless. Please leave about a 1/8" trim area if possible. Otherwise, your image is slightly stretched to attain full bleed. In most cases, you should not worry about bleed area unless we email you about possible concerns.
Two perfect media choices
Photo Gloss - Considered more like a satin gloss, this premium HP photo gloss paper supplies vibrant colors and superior fade resistance at a very competitive price also ensuring perfect color, excellent luster finish plus a 200-year archival rating.
Photo Matte - We offer an FSC Certified, unique matte photo paper that is heavy with an elegant, smooth finish. This media delivers full-color graphics and photo-realistic images with uniform ink coverage.
Templates are not necessary
We require a 1/8" bleed area for large posters. Since that is such a small trim amount, most customers send us art sized as the desired print dimensions. If we run into problems, we will contact you immediately. For people being extra cautious, please feel free to send art with ample bleed.

How we ship large posters
Large posters 16 x 20 and up are rolled with Kraft paper and inserted into an extremely durable and padded shipping tube. Bubble wrap and/or extra paper is added inside each tube to prevent posters from moving during transit. Somehow UPS still manages sometimes to damage these tubes which is quite an accomplishment on their part, but if damage occurs, we will reprint and ship immediately. Invoices are not added inside packages but are available from the Printkeg control panel.
A message about shipments requiring multiple boxes
If you order large posters with smaller prints such as postcards and flyers, it is likely you will be notified by email that extra shipping costs will be required. Large posters are shipped separately in tubes. The extra cost will be $5.99 (USPS First Class), $7.99 (USPS Priority), or $10.99 (UPS Ground).
