Here at The Poster Printing Co. the environment is important to us, which is why we opt only for suppliers who use renewable and sustainable plantation paper fibre sources (FSC & PEFC accredited). We also choose to use a latex printer for all our large format printing.

80-90% of large format printers use solvent printers. Solvent ink is essentially highly refined paint that uses harsh solvents as a carrier and to ‘bite’ into the media. Even the term eco-solvent actually means economy solvent, not ecological as the printers who use them would make you think.

In contrast, latex uses water as a carrier so there are no fumes, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or toxic waste to dispose of. The ink is cooked on top of the media rather than having to eat into the media with a solvent, which is much better for the environment.

We recycle all of our ink and toner cartridges and even provide a public drop off point for Planet Ark where anyone can drop their used toner cartridges to us for recycling.

Artwork specifications

Prices are based on artwork being supplied “Print-Ready”

We are printers, not graphic designers, so the file you send will be EXACTLY the image you receive.

We recommend following the below specs to ensure the best quality finish for your posters:

  • Ensure each edge has a 3mm bleed (on all 4 edges i.e. 6mm total). Bleed is what we call the area that will be cut off the edge to create a perfect edge-to-edge printing look. Allowing 3mm on each edge of bleed will ensure your posters have the best looking finish possible.
  • NO GUIDELINES, NO BORDERS, NO TRIM MARKS & no other print marks on your print-ready artwork. To avoid additional artwork charges and delays, simply provide the artwork in the finished size with the recommended bleed attached. If you want to show us how something should look please send us a separate file with guidelines.
