Understanding Your Outdoor Paper Options
We offer two options for outdoor poster paper: 125gsm blue-backed poster paper, or SyntiSOL plastic paper. The blue-backed paper is designed specifically for outdoor use (for example billboards) and is crack and flake resistant – even if it is folded after getting wet. At 125gsm thickness it’s thicker than the industry standard of just 125gsm, making it more durable and easier to hang. The blue-backing also prevents the background surface from showing through the poster. This paper is a good choice for exhibitions, billboard and events posters.
The SyntiSOL plastic paper is self-explanatory, it's plastic paper that is perfect for outdoor use. It is an extremely weatherproof and durable material with a satin finish that produces excellent print quality. We recommend this paper type if your poster will be viewed from close range, such as point-of-sale displays and entrance posters. The product is guaranteed to stand the test of time if used correctly.

We print all standard poster sizes as well as custom sizes.
What type of paper do you print outdoor posters on?
We offer 2 different choices for our outdoor posters: 125gsm blue-backed paper and SyntiSOL plastic paper.
What is blue-backed poster paper?
Our blue-backed poster paper has a satin finish. The blue backing helps reduce show-through when pasted over other images.
What is SyntiSOL plastic paper?
Our SyntiSOL plastic paper has a satin finish. The plastic material means this material is perfect for outdoor use and will last a reasonable amount of time if used correctly.
What is Satin Finish?
Satin finish (also called semi gloss) is a middle ground between photo gloss and matt. It showcases colours and contrast wonderfully but does not produce as much glare as with glossy paper.
Can you laminate my poster?
No, we do not laminate our outdoor posters. SyntiSOL plastic paper does not require any extra protection, and Blue-Backed paper is for pasting.
