How to Flatten a Poster

Video Tutorial: 2 Ways to Flatten a Poster and Avoid Creases

One of the most exciting aspects of ordering posters online is the moment they’re delivered. But when they’ve been rolled up in a tube, laying them flat can become a bit of a challenge. This video shows the best ways to flatten a poster to avoid creases and wrinkles. The first method is to roll the poster back on itself and secure it around the outside of a tube. Leave this for at least an hour and voila – an unrolled poster! The second method is to weigh down the edges of the poster. We’ll always roll from the long side of the poster meaning it’s easier to flatten when it arrives.

Whether you want to display your advertisement or artwork, we have the perfect solution for you. Here’s a quick rundown of our stocks, and tips on picking the right one for your poster designs:

  • 170gsm value silk – a thin and affordable option that’s best used for temporary posters.
  • 250gsm classic silk – a sturdier stock with a high-quality look and feel.
  • Waterproof PVC – at 220mic, this thin weatherproof option is ideal for outdoor A-frames.
  • Heavyweight waterproof PVC – outdoor signs or long-life posters are the best use for this 400mic PVC option.

We offer special laminate finishes on our classic silk stock. These add extra protection to your advertisement poster and give it a special look or feel. Choose from:

  • Matt – a smooth, no-shine finish that softens the colours
  • Gloss – a visible high-shine finish that brightens the colours

What Are Posters Used for?

When you’re designing your own poster for print, it’s essential that you’ve got an end goal in mind. Whatever your poster goal is, here are a few of the most popular ways our customers use them:

Advertising Products - One key way posters are used are to advertise products, services and businesses in general. These can be in-store offers or star buys, or even bus stop ads and other outdoor large format poster advertisements like billboards.

Promoting Events - If you’ve got a big event coming up, posters are a great way to advertise this. All you need is the single sheet to let passers-by know the date, time and location and you’re good to go! Just make sure you put it somewhere with a lot of potential to grab attention.

Communicating Important Information - From hygiene posters to health and safety information, posters play a vital role in many organisations. For long-lasting posters like these, PVC materials are the best to use since they’re sturdy and easy to wipe clean.

Where Are the Best Places to Put Posters?

One of the first decisions you’ll need to make before choosing what kind of poster you want to print is where you’re going to put it. Will it be indoor or out? In a permanent spot or just temporary? How much room will you need? These are all factors that will impact your decision.

But just where should you put posters for maximum impact? And more importantly, where are you allowed to put posters? Check out our guide to poster placement ideas and find more on the rules around putting up posters.
