So, how do you make sure that you do it right? Poster printing is not really as easy as A, B, C but it is a bit more complex than it seems. There are several factors that you need to consider before finally handing it over to the printers. Following are some such tips that may be of help to you.
Colour space Have you picked your colour space? This is however a factor that changes according to purpose and how the poster is being designed. Out of the two available options, the CMYK colour space is if you are creating the poster by yourself so that there will be a more accurate representation of the colours that are being used. You have the option of converting from RGB to CMYK on Photoshop whenever you start to design one.
ResolutionDepending on the size of your poster, you can pick the resolution that is needed. Keep in mind that you are expecting to go for poster printing, therefore, you must know that the normal paper printing resolution is not going to be of any help. In fact, you will face many difficulties at the store due to low resolution. Therefore, you must set the resolution to be of at least 300 DPI in order to ensure that the outcome will not be a blurry picture, completely ruining your beautiful design.
SizeWhat do you think is the ideal size for a poster? Keep in mind that this is not a regular printout or catalogue printing in Singapore, therefore the size needs to be considerably large. Usually posters start from the size A2 while the paper type and thickness can be picked according to the importance of what you are getting done. You can get some opinions from the printer as they are more experienced in this field than you are.
Choosing the shopYou need a reliable printer to get your work done from. How do you pick the best one? There will be many for you to find in your area, but you can always speak to your friends and get their opinions on whom they consider to be the best printers in town and then select the best one in your own discretion.
