High Quality Poster Printing?
Mark Kauzlarich, Photographer, Student/Intern
Madison | WI | | Posted: 6:21 PM on 11.28.12
->> I know nothing about printing, but I want to do make a few high-quality non-photo posters, kind of like old 60's concert posters.

I don't know what type of paper they were printed on, but I still run into limited-run prints at concerts on what feels like a high-quality, non-gloss, woven type paper. Does anyone know the formal name for this type of paper, and of anyone who will print on this type of paper?

Thanks.

->> A friend was recently raving about ShortRunPosters.com - 18x24 starting around $3.00, 24x36 - around $16. He mentioned their online order entry was kind of a pain but the end product was amazing for the price.

->> +1 for Shortrunposters.com. Not gallery quality, but amazingly good for the price and they will print only one if that's what you need.

->> This would be a limited run, probably 5 copies of 4 designs at most. So because of that, I want to get as high of quality as possible, but I still don't know what that type of paper I had come across before was called.

I think what I was thinking of were screen-printed posters, however the design I want printed is too complicated, I think, for normal screen printing, so I may have to change my plan.

Thanks for the tips thus far though!

->> If this is a one-time thing and you are only going to make 20 prints, the best option is one of the websites above or to go to a local shop that does large format printing. Epson makes a variety of paper weights and surfaces that a digital service bureau will generally stock. If you can't find one in Madison, give the folks at Dean's Graphics (http://www.deans-graphics.com) a call and ask for Mike at (217) 363-1390. I've used them for a variety poster and banner projects in the past. The quality is excellent and customer service is great.
