Resoultion is important. If you're creating artwork, that's eihter a .jpg, psd, or pdf, be sure that the resolution is at a minimum of 150dpi, although 300dpi is preferable. If the artwork is below that threshold, it will be returned to you.

IT can print a wide range of sizes, the most common being 18x24", 24x36", and 36x48".  IT will NOT resize or scale artwork. Artwork not at the correct size will be retured.

Also, the maximum width of our printer is 36 inches, so the shortest length of the poster must not exceed 36 inches. For example, 36x48 will work. 38x48 will not work.   

Additional Handling

You may choose to have your poster laminated OR mounted to foam board OR neither.
