Tip of the Week: Picking the Best Media for Printing Posters

Do you know where to start when choosing the best media for printing posters? We sat down with LexJet product guru, Jeff Leto, and talked about how important it is to determine the best weight, size and finish for your posters.

When you’re looking for the right poster material, pay close attention to its gram weight. A lighter gram weight is meant for things like movie posters or smaller signage, while a heavier gram weight is best for large window displays. The larger the sign, the heavier the gram weight should be in order to ensure a flat, smooth surface.

The finish is also an important factor when finding the perfect poster material. There are lots to choose from like matte, satin, semi-matte, gloss and high-gloss. The finish of the poster depends on the environment the poster will be displayed in. Some great examples of different finishes would be the Sunset Photo Gloss, the LexJet HydroTOUGH Poster and the HP Photo-realistic Poster Paper. All of these materials are compatible with latex printers, so you know you’re getting durable, cost-effective posters for all your business needs.

  1. This was really helpful and informative! A lot of people don’t realize that there are really any options, or that it makes a difference. They just use regular old printer paper. But that’s usually a bad idea and your posters will end up falling apart.
