In Music City, Poster Printing is in demand
Poster printing is one of our most common jobs at Professional Reprographics and the uses people find for them at times surprises even us.
Nashville’s a big music town, as you may have heard, so bands and musicians constantly come to us with orders for fliers they can staple to telephone poles and posters they can tape to the insides of windows. Chances are, we printed those posters you see on street corners.
They’re usually 12-by-18, with a picture of the band at the top and a blank space at the bottom for gig information. We’re happy to help out our local musicians. We also do short runs for churches, offices, civic clubs — for all the traditional poster printing uses you can imagine.
With digital printing, a poster is not expensive to print, even in state of the art color. With today’s digital printing technology, the quality is far better than you might think. Today, there is little difference in print quality between a photograph you get printed at a photo lab and what comes off our equipment.
Then we get clients who put in poster printing orders for more creative reasons.
We had a client not long ago order a series of posters, of different, random things, including a boat on the ocean. We asked him why, and he said his office was where the fuse box was, and he wanted a range of options to look at aside from the fuse box. You just never can tell why somebody might want posters printed!
Posters can be one of the most effective printed marketing tools for a business, organization or band. They’re usually very colorful and have high visual impact, guaranteeing coveted eyeballs on your product.
At Professional Reprographics, we have the capacity to turn out posters in any size and design you might want, from 8½-by-11 to super wide format and everything in between.
