Posters are by far the cheapest, fastest means to grab attention and convey information. Posters are most often used to promote events and can be found nearly everywhere. In many cases, posters have become collector’s items when featuring esteemed performers, blockbuster movies, and legendary concerts.

Be sure to ask us about poster distribution! We distribute event posters to retail locations throughout Chicagoland.

Posters suit nearly every application and can be printed for indoor or outdoor usage. Custom posters are also used in educational, industrial, scientific, and retail industries with information printed on a huge variety of substrates. While posters can be printed in nearly any size imaginable, the most common size for event poster printing is 11 x 17.

In most cases, posters are digitally printed. However, large posters and large format prints are most often produced via offset, or conventional printing for large runs.

Printworks is Chicago’s largest producer of event posters and we specialize in theatre posters, concert posters, band posters, and festival posters. If you’ve seen posters in your local coffee shops for upcoming performances and events, there’s a good chance that we printed them.

Get High Quality Prints!

How do I get my theatre posters / band posters / concert posters to stand out? Be Bold! Bright colors, captivating photographs, and keep the text to a minimum. However, don’t forget to include the date(s) and venue information!

Are you going to hang your posters up in windows? If yes, consider printing double sided with the same image on both sides. The additional cost is marginal and you’ve doubled your potential impressions.

Should I print my posters on a heavy stock? No, its true that a heavy card stock looks great and screams quality but a thinner stock (text weight) is far cheaper and still does the job. Remember, a poster is a valuable tool either promotionally or informationally. You’re better off with more posters on a thinner stock than a few posters on a heavy stock.

What is the most popular poster size for an event? 11 x 17 is by far the most popular and we highly recommend a vertical design. A vertical designed 11 x 17 poster will fit the best in most posting applications.
