Printed at high resolution (1200dpi) onto a woven foldable fabric material. The material is smudge-proof, supposedly washable and ironable. Creasing is minimal and acceptable.
Posters are folded and supplied in an A4 sized plastic box. The box is slim and perfect for transportation. Avoid airline fees or putting your poster in the hold. The larger box (~1-4 posters is 55mm thick). The smaller box (~1 poster) is only 24mm thick). A1 posters and smaller are sent in an A5 sized plastic box
All fabric posters are now supplied with push pins, and also some new plastic holders that should be used with the supplied velcro tabs or double sided tape when pins cannot be used. Please read the information about fixings that are on a label inside the box.
Fabric posters are “hot-cut” which heat-seals the edges and eliminates fraying.
Paper poster printing:Paper posters are printed on 195gsm Xerox satin photo paper using original inks (no fading) and at the highest resolution (1200dpi). Posters are supplied with velcro tabs in a sturdy cardboard tube
The two most common errors we see as printers of scientific posters are easily
avoidable which is why we have this information on our front page.......
1.Always make your poster “actual size” Do not simply open powerpoint and make your poster - enter the dimensions and then make it - it makes designing it much easier, and the final print is much better as any images will be printed “as seen” rather than being scaled up by ~400%2.If possible send a pdf with fonts embedded, or if this is not possible, stick to standard fonts. Another common problem is with fonts and text “moving around”. This is especially common in powerpoint which can have problems with different version and also PC/Mac* versions. If you are not sure about your pdf file, send both the pdf and powerpoint and then if we create a pdf here (using Acrobat Professional) we can cross reference.*In Mac powerpoint for some reason even if the slide is set to A0 or whichever size you require, when a pdf is created, it defaults to making an A4 sized pdf file (typically with a white border). Whilst we can crop and scale up, if you are struggling then send us both and we’ll create an actual sized pdf file here.Using a Mac? - we’ve been given this useful link showing you how to create an actual sized pdf from powerpoint - https://youtu.be/CtIzM4GARuk
