Tips for 16 x 20 Poster Printing
PRO TIPS FOR PERFECT POSTER PRINTING

Getting the color right for your poster

Poster printing color settings for Adobe suite

For designs intended for print you should always use CMYK color mode / space. When printing your posters our printing presses will use a combination of four ink colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, to produce your final poster order. By designing / using CMYK mode, your designs are translated into those correct percentages of ink that we will use on press, resulting in a more accurate color reproduction.

Getting the size right for your poster

When designing an 18″ x 24″ poster, create your document ¼” (.25″) larger. This can be done easily in most Adobe Creative Suite programs by either increasing the height and width (like in Photoshop) or by adding a .125″ bleed on all four sides of your poster. This will result in a final poster size of 18.25″ x 24.25″ or 5,475 x 7,275 pixels at a resolution of 300.

Picking the right paper for your poster

Mighty Posters makes it easy to look awesome with your choice of three paper weights and two finishes. No cheap papers here, we use only name brand papers in ultra-white brightness.

Whether you want to poster the town with economical 80# text or you’re prepping for retail on heavy 10pt. cover stock, we’ve got a paper choice for you. You can also choose from matte or gloss finish options to allow for easier writing or to highlight your design.

Want something extra special? We can provide a custom quote for colored stocks, kraft papers, and even plastics.

other poster sizes

Choosing the right paper for your poster project can make all the difference. We offer a variety of thicknesses for posters. Even our thinnest weights are considered premium at many other online sources. Our most economical option is 80# text and is perfect for event signage and political posters. If you are looking for something thicker, perhaps for retail, consider our rigid 10pt cover. It is perfect for a high quality look and feel.

You can also pick from eye-catching gloss or understated matte finish. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Need something unusual like a colored paper stock or plastic? We can do that, too. Just request a quick quote.

We love surprises, except when it comes to color reproduction. If you’ve designed your poster in using RGB mode, you may be surprised to see changes in your colors after printing.

Why?

RGB (Red, Green, & Blue) color mode / space is intended for use in electronic displays, like your computer monitor or television. This color mode is based on combining light, not inks. As a result, some colors (like bright greens) may look great on your screen, but can’t be accurately reproduced using printing inks. If your poster has been designed in the wrong color space, you will notice a color shift from your monitor to the final printed piece. Make sure you double check your instant proof for color accuracy.

Unless properly calibrated, most monitors and screens will not display printing colors accurately. Your choice in paper stocks may also affect final color reproduction.

Mighty Posters prints a wide variety of poster sizes. In most cases, your poster will be printed on a much larger sheet (sometimes multiple posters on a page) and trimmed down to the final size. By making a few adjustments and double checks in your poster design, you can be assured of getting the best quality final poster that is exactly the size you need.

Make sure you bring any color or design elements that you wish to come to the edge of your finished poster all the way to the edge of the your now larger document size. We will trim the extra eighth of an inch away from each of the sides of your poster resulting in a 11″ x 17″ final size. Can’t change the document size or don’t want to bother? When uploading your design, our instant poster proofing system may stretch your art slightly to allow us room to cleanly trim the edges. For safety sake, keep any important text or designs at least .0125″ away from the edges of your poster design.
