The first step in this process is poster design. You will want to take the time to consider your audience and your message.

With talented design professionals, we have the ability to take your design ideas and turn them into a reality! 


Creativity is Boundless

When beginning your consultation, we will ask that you provide us with as much reference information as you can in order to help us formulate your poster design. Once we have a good idea of what you are looking to create, we begin our design process which will follow with rounds of digital proofs for your review. This will allow you to make any adjustments you see fit. Our goal is to provide a final poster design that not only meets but exceeds your expectations. Should you have very minimal reference material for your design – not to worry – our designers can help you conceptualize a final design that is sure to be a standout piece which captures the attention of your Chicago clientele! 

If you have experience with poster design and printing, we ask that you provide us with a very straightforward file type for production. Our print requirement includes a print-ready PDF file, which is sized and includes crops and bleeds. The color profile of your design should always be in CMYK, best for print. Should you have any questions as to how your files should be set up, do not hesitate to consult with your Alphagraphics Chicago North sales representative. 


Poster Printing Options

Posters come in a variety sizes, and at our Chicago North center, we have the capabilities to print posters at a maximum width of 60 inches x however many inches long. We advise that your poster design be just shy of 60 inches wide to allow for the necessary bleed. Poster prints can also be produced using a variety of different materials. From standard matte or gloss poster paper to adhesive vinyl which can be mounted to a variety of different substrates, we can advise on the right material for your project.

Let’s say your business is taking part in one of Chicago’s many conventions and/or tradeshows that happen almost every week throughout the year. You will likely need posters, whether they be mounted or unmounted, to display on an easel or hang in your booth. Consult with our sales/design team in regards to your poster design and print options and we can advise as to what is the best method for your project.


Chicago Clientele

Recently I processed an order which involved over 50, 8.5 x 11 prints which were printed on a gloss adhesive paper stock and mounted to white foam core. Our client, based in Chicago’s River North area, was traveling and needed these table top displays printed, mounted, and shipped to their conference. We also added easel backs to each piece so that our client could display these in different areas of their booth, throughout the duration of their conference. Easel backs come in a variety of different sizes and can be applied to mounted posters as large as 24 x 36 inches.

We asked our client for a print-ready PDF file which they were able to provide, and from there we were able to turn this project around in just a couple of days. This is just one example of poster prints on a smaller scale, produced in a larger quantity. Reach out to our sales team today to inquire about your next poster design and print job! Whether it be on a small or large scale, we can help you every step of the way!
