What Standard Poster Sizes Are Available for Large Posters?

Choose from a wide range of large poster sizes that will command attention on any occasion.

  • 16” x 20” is the standard choice for displaying large photos on the walls of your store or at a promotional exhibit.
  • 18” x 24” is the go-to size for medium-sized campaign posters, brand advertorials, and other marketing displays that have a visual element.

What Is the Difference Between Semi & High Gloss Paper?

All posters are printed on thick, durable HP photo paper. The material is made specifically for large format printing purposes.

Semigloss gives a medium shine that distinguishes both images and text on large poster designs.

High gloss provides a higher shine that’s usually seen in large prints of photos or graphic artwork.

From a wide range of sizes to premium materials, PrintRunner’s large format poster printing boasts of quality and efficiency. You can print up to 50 posters and have the order ready by the next business day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color is perfect Print Runner was the fourth on-line print company I used for my poster prints. For some reason, the prints from the other companies were flawed...the color was not true to the image (grass was yellow and not green, etc.) Print Runner color was as shot, and looked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Print Quality! My colleague and I really like the posters that we have ordered with you. They look really good! Thank you very much for the great job on these! They are a bit more fragile than laminated ones but this doesn't matter much. I actually like the fact that they are not as shiny and less plasticy looking.
