You Design, We Print!
Have a great idea for a poster that supports an upcoming lesson? Need a customized chart to keep your classroom a little more organized? Want a fun way to let your favorite school teams know you're cheering them on? We can help you with that!
Design your poster on an 8.5"X11" page in Microsoft Word, Publisher, Excel; Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign. Use high-quality images and avoid copyrighted artwork (Disney, Marvel, etc.). Save your document as a PDF, open the PDF to make sure it looks exactly as you want, then email that file to email@example.com. You'll also need to let us know if you want your poster to be printed full size (24"x36") or half size (18"x24"), and if you'd like it laminated. A member of our team will send you a price quote and delivery/pickup timeline* for approval before we start work on your request.
All posters are printed on white paper. Full size posters range from $6-$13; half size posters from $3-$6.50. The price is dependent upon the amount of ink on the page and whether or not you request lamination.
*While many orders can be completed in 2-4 business days, please expect longer wait times for large orders and during busier times of the school year.
