At Minuteman Press we not only print posters, we design them too! We can do standard paper sizes and we can do wide format.
When you're planning a poster order, keep in mind what size you'd like it at. If the size you want isn't a common size, we'll need to match it to the best size and cut it down. While we are happy to do this, it's an added cost! So keep it in mind.
Also be sure to keep in mind whether your artwork will bleed. Bleeds mean that the artwork runs all the way to the edge of the paper. A print-ready file will be just a little bigger than the final size. Once printed, we'll then cut slightly past the artwork in order to guarantee that the composition is centered. Having that extra padding also helps us avoid trimming off anything important, so you'll want to make sure that anything vital is well away from the edge.
Here are our standard paper sizes:
8.5 x 11"
8.5 x 14"
11 x 17"
12 x 18"
Note: Anything larger than 12 x 18" will need to be run on our wide format printer.
Wide format prints: Our more heavy-duty option. Our wide format posters are printed on our photo satin paper; which is a nice durable stock. Wide format prints are perfect if you want a higher-end poster that will last you a while.
Mounted posters are also available! Check out our page here on mounted signs for additional information on materials.
