WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE WHEN ORDERING A POSTER?
As well as selecting the size of any given poster, you can specify the paper type as either Gloss or Satin/Lustre finish. Our printers do recommend that the Satin/Lustre papers produce less glare if the poster is mounted in a glass/perspex frame. All posters are printed on 260gsm paper.
HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?
On receipt of your order we will send a confirmation e-mail and, in the case of posters, forward the order to the printing company. Orders for photographs and posters are despatched separately and are usually completed/ despatched within 7 working days. However, please be aware that your order may take a little longer if we experience severe adverse weather conditions. Additionally, during the busy pre Christmas period, orders may take slightly longer to be completed.
