Large poster printing allows us to produce stunning one off posters or banners.

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8000 produces print up to a meter wide on a wide range of materials. Designed primarily for photography, fine art, posters and sign making it is a pigment ink system that produces stunning results that can't fail to turn heads.

We usually achieve a same day service but during busy periods this may not apply, so please ask about the turnaround time when handing in your artwork.

Page Setup for Powerpoint Files
On opening Powerpoint, before designing your poster, you need to set the size of your slide. This is done through the Page Setup option, within the File Menu.



When this is complete you may begin designing your poster in the same way you create any normal slide. Save your poster as a Powerpoint file, ideally to a folder named PRINT.

Please note: Cutting and pasting internet linked images may not appear on your poster design.

Publisher Files
We would prefer not to work with Publisher files as they can be unstable when transferred to another machine. We are willing to print these files but accept no responsibility if they do not print correctly and you will be charged for the printed copy.
