Paper Type and Poster Dimensions

There are two types of paper available for your poster: regular and photo. Available widths:
•    Regular: 24", 36", 42"
•    Photo: 24", 36"
The maximum length is limited by the length of a roll of paper (100').  
NOTE:  Since the width of the paper is always fixed, the number of running feet refers to the dimension that is equal to or longer than the available widths. For example, for a 36"x36" poster, the running feet is 3.  For a 36"x42" poster, the running feet is 4. Fractions of a foot are rounded up.


Please note that posters are neither waterproof nor light stable. Laminating services are no longer available at the Distribution Center.
