Poster Printing Finishing (i.e. Folding etc.)
Once the Poster Printing is completed, you can choose to have your Litho Poster or Large Leaflet folded, perforated, creased, round cornered or drilled. Just select the appropriate Finishing under Optional Extras and the prices in the Poster Printing price table will adjust automatically to include the additional costs.
If you select Extra Cuts under the Finishing option, you might find that you can save on the cost of Poster Printing by planning various smaller sizes of Poster onto a larger sheet size – we will then trim the items to size after printing.
