Poster Printing

Posters go beyond mere decoration. They can transform any space. You don’t need to order a minimum quantity; you can upload a variety of file formats and print as many designs as you like from Art Posters or Movie Posters. But how you design them is up to you: include web addresses, QR codes, bold colours, striking text and standout graphics - we’ll combine the expertise of real print specialists with the latest printing technology to help you get your message across.

Non-account holders can place orders, but we recommend creating a free Mixam account and signing in. Select an item from the categories at the top of the website, and choose your print specifications, free quote and estimated shipping date via the Instant Quote Calculator. Click Add to Cart, then Continue, and upload your files to your Artwork tab. Visit our How To Print With Mixam Support Page for more information.

You can create artwork by hand, scan it or photograph it and upload images to your desktop. You can also use graphic design programs like Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Canva, or Affinity Publisher. To ensure print-ready files before upload, download Our Instant Quote Calculator's downloadable PDF templates to lay out your designs. Alternatively, click the Design Online Tool to create artwork in your order (visit our Support Page for more information).

Bleed is an extension of artwork or colour(s) to minimise unprinted edges appearing when we cut your prints to size. Most items require a 0.125” bleed, including Flat items and the inner pages and covers on Bound and Paperback items. You don’t need to include bleed if no artwork or colour(s) meet the page edges. Visit our Bleed Support Page or contact our team for help.

Start a pending order by adding a quote to your Cart and clicking Continue. Please label your files clearly before uploading with names like Page_1, Page_2, etc., so our system can place your files chronologically. Drag and drop files from your desktop or upload them from your computer, online file-sharing accounts like Dropbox, or a web URL. You can upload single and multi-page files to orders. Visit our Print File Setup Guide for more information.

You can upload many file types, and we’ll convert them into high-quality PDFs. You can submit them as single, double, or individual files. Ensure your files are in CMYK colour mode before uploading. Visit our Colour Guide for Printing and File Formats Support Page to view the complete list of accepted file types.

A multi-piece shipment refers to a single order containing multiple items. Once you add your first quote to your Shopping Cart, you can repeat the process for the same item or add a quote for another item via the categories at the top of the website. You can then upload your files to each item in one order.

Once you’ve uploaded files in your order’s Artwork tab, you can preview them via Thumbnails, an Online Preview and Downloadable Proof. Mixam’s automatic file checker will scan your files, but please also check all files manually, especially your Downloadable Proof, to review and fix issues before we send your order to production. Visit our Proofing Support Page for more information, and contact our print experts by chat, email or phone for assistance.

The cut-off time for Confirmed orders is 4 pm EST every workday. It would help to confirm your order before these times to secure your estimated shipping date. Unconfirmed orders may mean you receive a new estimated delivery date. Visit our Shipping and Delivery Support Page for more information.

We aim to get your order to you by or on the estimated date you choose on our Instant Quote Calculator. While all shipping dates are not guaranteed, we’ll inform you at the earliest opportunity if a delay occurs. Visit our Shipping and Delivery Support Page for more information, and contact our team in advance if you have a deadline, and we’ll try to accommodate.

You can familiarise yourself with our quality, products and paper stocks by ordering free printed samples here. You can also create a test print before placing a larger order by ordering one copy via our Instant Quote Calculator. Please note that shipping can take longer depending on your location, but you can contact our team if you have any questions.

Lamination means applying a transparent plastic coating on top of prints to preserve, protect and enhance aesthetics. All laminations and finishes can affect the final appearance of printed colours, but each minimises issues like marking, ink transferral, smudging, creasing, fading, wrinkling, abrasion and tearing. Please note we cannot laminate Uncoated and Recycled Paper stocks. Visit Our Print Finishes Support Page for more information.

The size and quantity of your prints will dictate how they'll arrive. Small quantities of large-format prints may arrive rolled in tubes, while small-format prints and quantities will arrive flat.

How To Upload Your Files
  • To ensure high-quality print files, we'll convert your files to PDFs, no matter which file type you upload. We accept single pages, double pages or individual files. Visit our File Formats Support Page to learn how to submit your files.
Bleed
  • Bleed is the area surrounding your print’s size, extending an image or colour beyond the finished edge. Add a 0.125" bleed to every print file before uploading them to your Artwork Dashboard. Avoid placing any important content within the bleed area. You don't need to include bleed if your edges are blank (i.e. no images/graphics meet the edge of your page). Visit our Bleed Setup Support Page to learn more about bleed, trim lines and gutter areas.
Lamination
  • We strongly advise that you add a lamination to prints containing areas with dark colours. Lamination increases a print's lifespan and enhances printed colours. It also minimises ink transfer and scuffing. Paper weights of 80lb or higher can be laminated, and lighter paper will curl. Visit our Print File Checklist Support Page for more information.
