Poster printing is highly affordable personalised wall art

Poster printing is a comfortable way to get your favourite pictures in an economical format which you can then hang up on your wall in just a few seconds. As children and teenagers, we used to enjoy hanging up posters of our favourite stars, cartoon heroes, singers and movie characters. Instead of printing them out, we would run off to the kiosk to buy the last magazine, tear out the poster sheets and hang them up on our bedroom wall. By printing a poster online, greater freedom to design every single feature is offered: the picture theme, print size, the actual text & fonts and further photography effects can be selected and personalised. In addition, custom posters cover a wide range of themes and occasions, including:
  • wedding pics,
  • newborn babies,
  • holiday and sightseeing pictures (e.g. landscapes, buildings, monuments),
  • family reunions,
  • special events and meetings with friends,
  • your favourite animal or pet.

Make your own poster: design tips for poster printing

Making your own poster is nowadays easier than ever. With just one good picture, a nice message and your personal computer, you will be well prepared to make a poster online. If the picture is powerful, you won't really need to add much to it to make it look good. Nonetheless, there are a few aspects you should consider before starting to use myphotobook's online poster maker software. Picture quality, size and the hanging system are some the topics that we discuss in the following section:

What's the best resolution for poster printing?

The bigger the poster you want to print is, the more important it becomes to use an image with sufficient image resolution. The output resolution provided by your photographic camera or smartphone will vary from one model to the other.  However, to find out the maximum allowed size for your picture, divide the picture length and heigth expressed in pixels by 25. As a result, a  3568 x 2368 pixel image can be printed in a maximum 142 x 94 cm size.  For optimal resolution, divide the number of pixels by 60, if a part of the picture has been extended to make it look bigger, the resolution needed could be higher. By providing the right resolution, you can avoid having to send back the poster if it doesn't turn out as you expected (for instance, if the pictures look blurry). In any event, remember that myphotobook UK offers satisfaction guarantee. Please note that any images you upload to our online poster maker should follow the sRGB colour pattern. Although for poster printing it is generally recommended to use a CMYK colour modell, our software will automatically transform them into CMYK.

What's the best way to hang a poster?

Thumb tacks and pins aren't really the safest methods to up posters, especially if your poster keeps falling off the wall. Besides, both the poster and wall could get damaged. Although adhesive strips usually work better, after some time they will also start to turn yellowish. The best way to hang a poster is to frame it. For this, we suggest having a look at myphotobook's framed prints (in acrylic or aluminium) and foam core mounted prints (Forex®). Forex mounted posters are indeed an easy and economical solution to hang up your pictures on a weatherproof PVC board.

What sizes are available for poster printing?

myphotobook offers you a huge variety of poster sizes for printing purposes: 20x20 cm (7.8 x 7.8") is the smallest and 300x 100 cm (118.1 x 39.3") the biggest. Some other popular sizes for poster printing are:
  • A1 poster printing (59.4 x 84.1) 23.3x33.1"
  • A2 poster printing (42 x 59.4) 16.5x23.3"
  • A3 poster printing (29.7 x 42) 11.69x16.5"
Also the price of printing a personalised poster varies depending on the size. Cheap posters in a 20x20 cm size can be ordered from £4.49, whereas an extra-large poster (300x 100 cm) can cost £110.99. As in other types of personalised wall art, a choice of landscape or portrait orientation, as well as square formats are in included in our online shop selection. Hint: especially with square sizes, a photo collage (designed with a combination of different pictures) is a good choice. As for pictures and portraits of people, switching to black & white provides a simple and elegant look full of emotions. In addition, face features will be better profiled.
