Printing large posters yourself to save money
Method 1: use a large-format printer
- Choose and download a poster that you like a look of from the list above
- Print on a large sheet of paper (A2-A0). If your school doesn't have a large printer, ask a local makerspace or university if you can use theirs.
- Laminate the poster for durability. If the poster is too big for your laminator, sandwich it between two sheets of sticky-backed plastic instead.
- Staple-gun to a display board.
Method 2: split a large poster into several smaller pieces that you can stick together
- Download the poster that you want to print from the link above.
- Split the downloaded file into several sheets that you can stick together on your wall, using a multi-page PDF generator.
- Print and laminate (optional) each sheet.
- Line the sheets up and staple them on a display board.
Method 3: use a printing service
- Choose and download a poster that you like a look of from the list above.
- Send it to a local or cheap online printing service like Solopress or Print24.
