Understanding Your Outdoor Paper Options

We offer two options for outdoor poster paper: 125gsm blue-backed poster paper, or SyntiSOL plastic paper - perfect for creating more durable waterproof posters.

Pastable Paper:

Recommended for short term use, the pastable blue-backed paper is designed specifically for outdoor use and is crack and flake resistant – even if it is folded after getting wet. At 125gsm thickness it’s thicker than the industry standard, making it more durable and easier to hang. The blue-backing also prevents the background surface from showing through the poster. This is a budget outdoor poster paper which is often used for events posters and billboards. Due to the texture of this material, the print quality can be reduced compared to printing on other poster material and is recommended for larger posters viewed from a distance. The blue-backing on the material may result in artwork darkening slightly.

Plastic Paper:

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.

Outdoor Poster Printing FAQs

What sizes of outdoor posters do you print?

We print all standard poster sizes as well as custom sizes. How wide we can print in one piece depends on the material being used. Any custom sizes wider than the roll width will be split into sections. The roll widths are as follows:

  • 125gsm Blue Backed - 1500mm
  • SyntiSOL Plastic Paper - 1370mm

Please leave us a note if you have any preference on how we split your poster.

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 textured 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.

How do I order a poster?

To place an order online, simply select your options and upload your artwork, or choose our design service on this page and proceed through checkout.

How do I order the correct size?

It is advisable to order your poster a few millimetres larger than you require in order to account for any measurement or surface deficiencies. We advise that there may be up to a 3mm size tolerance on your finished poster. This can be due to a variety of factors such as trimming, temperatures, and lamination processes.

What format should my artwork be in?

Please read our guidelines for supplying artwork.

Can I upload more than one image per order?

If you’re ordering more than one poster of the same size, and have various pieces of artwork to supply, our uploader will allow you to add as many images as you need to complete you order.

Can you colour match?

Our printers produce CMYK images and artwork supplied in this format will be printed with the colour values stated. We do offer a personalised colour matching service please contact our sales office for more information and pricing.

Can you edit my artwork?

Yes, we can make amendments to your artwork. For this you will need to select one of our design services, which will allow for approx 1 hour or 2 hours design time depending on the package you choose.

Can I collect from store?

If it is convenient for you to collect or arrange collection from our factory in Manchester, you can select this option during the checkout process.
