Prices and Options

Materials

Prices start at $6.75 per square foot for posters printed on our standard paper (Presentation Bond). We also offer these materials:

  • Photo Gloss or Photo Satin Paper
  • Outdoor Vinyl
  • Egyptian Sail Cloth
  • Perforated Window Vinyl
  • Other materials available by special order

Finishing Options

Our Pure Panel mounting board is manufactured from post-consumer corrugated cardboard (recyclable and 100% repulpable after its useful life). Thickness = 3/16" Price = $4.20 square foot

We offer two lamination styles - flush cut and encapsulated or sealed edge. Flush cut means the poster is laminated and then trimmed to the edge of the material. A sealed edge means the material is trimmed first and then laminated, which leaves a 1/8 inch border of clear laminate around the material.

We also offer two types of laminate finishes, gloss and matte. Price = $3.60 square foot

Large Format File Setup Guidelines

File formats

PDF (highest quality preferred), Adobe InDesign (include support graphics and fonts), Photoshop (psd, tif, jpg) or Illustrator (ai, eps).

Printing from Powerpoint

We recommend exporting your Powerpoint file as a high quality PDF. If you supply a native PowerPoint file, these issues might occur:

  • Inconsistencies when enlarging from PowerPoint
  • Text shifting or wrapping to the next line 

When designing in PowerPoint, never copy and paste image graphics into your file; always insert as picture. It is recommended that a hardcopy color proof is supplied to Repro Graphics for accurate color and layout matching.

Image Resolution

We recommend designing your large format document at actual size with a resolution of 100 dpi minimum.

Fonts

Convert fonts to outlines (preferred method) or supply all Post Script printer and screen fonts.

Proofs

PDF electronic proofs will be provided upon request. Hard copy proofs are available at an extra charge.

Don'ts
  • Whenever possible, do not embed images. Use insert as picture or place commands in your application.
  • Avoid using low resolution images, especially ones taken from the internet. Repro Graphics cannot guarantee quality output when low resolution images are used.
Extra Charges
  1. Client requested color and layout changes are available.
  2. Jobs with incomplete or inaccurate elements may require extra work. Customer will be notified and given a quote.
