You’ve finally decided to get that custom poster made. Whether it’s for your band’s next gig or to promote your small business, you want something that looks professional and eye-catching. So, how do you go about ordering a screen printed poster?
Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get the best quality poster possible:
Pick the right print shop
Not all screen printing companies are created equal. Do your research and pick a partner that has a good reputation and produces high-quality prints.
At this stage, make sure to communicate with the shop's print capabilities and limitations. Many will have specific artwork requirements to avoid fees, so ask away!
Choose your paper wisely
The type of paper you use will affect the quality of your poster. If you want a vibrant and unique print, go for a thick paper that is specifically made for screen printing.
We mostly use French Paper at Cracked Ego. We find its' weights, color choices, and sustainable production practices make it a great option.
Decide on the quantity
How many posters do you need? Some shops will require a minimum order of 25, others will need 100. Make sure to factor this requirement into your project budget.
Keep in mind that the price per poster will go down the more you order.
Get a proof
Once you’ve chosen a printing company, make sure to get a digital proof before moving ahead to print.
Some shops will create a print sample if asked but that will usually require a very sizable order.
That covers the basics!
If you want the print process recorded to share with your audience, ask the shop if they could have someone shoot a quick video. The pace of production may not allow for time, but it never hurts to ask!
We hope this quick guide will help get your order on the right path and get your awesome art out to the world!
