We only use Roland branded eco-solvent inks at Printvent. Each poster is produced using seven ink colours to give a vibrant and professional finish. The ink we use is GreenGuard Gold approved which means it is safe for use even in school and health care settings. Your poster printing will have a scratch and water-resistant finish which negates the need for a separate lamination layer.

Poster Printing Sizes
We have all the standard sizes A2 A1 A0 etc, as well as some more unusual sizes like our banner and our 1200 x 400 mm panoramic posters. These are in a 3:1 ratio and look fantastic on a wall with a custom frame. We can also produce square posters which are becoming more popular and Printvent is the home of the round poster. This is part of our soft signage products, and does blur the lines between a traditional poster and a wall sticker. We produce the round posters on “Stickytex” which is a polyester fabric. It is incredibly tough and can be removed easily with no damage or residue on the walls. They will be delivered to you on a backing sheet and are very simple with the application, they are just peel and stick. If you need custom shapes doing we can kiss cut Stickytex to any shape you require (depending on site of artwork) if you have an SVG or PNG file with a transparent background. We have a blog post about Stickytex here.
If you require a bespoke wall sticker then please contact us. We have some of the best prices in the UK for quality wall stickers.
If you have your own print ready artwork you can simply use the upload files button in the product page. If you need to design your printed poster then you have access to the Printvent designer. The designer will let you use your own photos, logos, text and graphics to come up with a completely unique personalised poster design. You can access your Facebook and Instagram photos and as well as having access to the 1.3 million pictures that are free on Pixabay. A great way to produce a completely unique peronalised printed poster.
How quick is delivery?
We like to give our posters time to dry properly after printing. If they are left for 24 hours lying flat then they will be stronger and less prone to any problems with the print. We aim to ship your order the day after you place your order. We use various shipping methods depending on the size but you will usually have your order within 3 working days of ordering. If you need it sooner pleaes let us know we will always try to help.
