Size Problems

Why can't I have my poster printed at any size?

Your final requested poster size needs to be proportional to the document size of your poster file. Examples:

proportion diagram

If you set your file up at 36" x 18", then you can only print at sizes that are proportional to that (42" x 21", 50" x 25", 72" x 36"). Printing at a disproportionate ratio of height and width will result in a squished or stretched poster. Although our staff will try to catch any sizing issues, the client assumes responsibility for the final size of any unproofed poster.
