DESIGNING LARGE
FORMAT POSTERS
Designing Large Format Posters is slightly different to designing
these areth
for litho print, partly because of their increased size but also because

WATCH THE RESOLUTION
Large Format Posters are designed to be viewed at a distance (usually
of at least 1m). This means that images don’t need to be as high
resolution as on litho printed items. We recommend that you provide
images for Large Format Posters at a maximum of 150dpi. Any higher
won’t make much difference to fi nal print, but will take much longer to
process, and may delay the processing of your job.
