A3 Poster Printing Services: Things to Consider
When it comes to buying A3 poster prints, there are a few practical things you need to take into account:
Who Are You?
First thing’s first: who are you, and what do you want from your A3 poster?
If you’re a business, A3 posters can be a fantastic way to create high-quality, cost-effective promotional materials. Need a large quantity of posters for an upcoming event? Maybe you want a way to alert customers to your new website? Our team at JMF Group has the experience and skills necessary to get your project done on time and within budget.
For personal customers, A3 posters are a great way to display your favourite photos in high quality. Whether you’re looking for just a few prints or need a larger quantity, our team at JMF always produce amazing results.
For business customers, a simple A3 poster can be a great way to get your message across to clients. Whether you’re looking for a service announcement or want to promote your new website, an A3 poster is the perfect way to do it.
This may be an obvious one, but picking the right size for your poster is essential. Wherever you plan on displaying your print, you want to make sure it will be seen, and that it will offer excellent quality. We offer a range of standard poster sizes (from small gloss prints to large outdoor banners), so try to make sure A3 is the correct size for you. We don’t want to sell you an A3 poster if you really needed a banner!
When considering size, don’t just think about the space you have for it. Take note of the quality and resolution of your photo or artwork; is it high enough to fill an A3 poster, or is it likely to look pixelated? If you’re not sure, don’t worry, we’re here to help! Simply upload files to our website, and our experts will take a look.
When it comes to A3 poster prints, colour is key. You want your print to look good, and that means having a high-quality colour palette. At JMF Group, we offer full colour printing for all of our A3 posters. This ensures that your print will have all the detail and vibrancy you need to make an instant impression with your wall art.
Maybe a full-colour design is more than you need, and a monochrome or single-colour print will do? Perhaps you’re promoting a gig, for example, and you want some low-cost posters to plaster around town? Monochrome posters can be produced cheaper and quicker, so can be a perfect option if fast delivery is important.
When it comes to choosing the right paper type for your A3 poster, there are a few things you need to take into account. The first is paper weight; this is measured in grams per square metre (g/m2), and the higher the number, the thicker the paper. Heavier papers are more tear-resistant and so better if you want a durable sign or piece of wall art.
If durability is less of a concern than print quality, you might want to consider a premium gloss paper. Gloss paper offers supreme print quality and colour reproduction, and generally gives a more luxurious finish. On the other hand, it is more difficult to handle (prone to leaving contact and fingerprint marks), and doesn’t play well with frame or glass mounting—not ideal for fitting in your LED lightbox!
Another key thing to consider when buying A3 poster prints is their final location.
If your poster is for outdoor use, you want a paper which is weather resistant, and suitable for all outdoor settings. Outdoor posters are perfect for grabbing attention from a distance, but—again—take note of size; is A3 big enough for a large outside space, or would A2, A1, A0, or banner sizes be more appropriate?
With indoor posters you have many more options to get your message across with fantastic quality and vibrant colours. When printed on high-quality paper, they offer the perfect solution for anyone looking for an eye-catching poster or photo print that will stand out from the crowd.
Single-Sided or Double-Sided?
When you decided you needed to print some posters, you might have only considered the single-sided option. However, for businesses in particular, a double-sided option can represent great value for money. Not only does it allow your customers to view promotional material from both outside and inside your premises, but it potentially allows you to print two poster campaigns on a single sheet—why checkout twice when you can do it once?

Who you choose for your A3 prints is extremely important; make sure you go with a company who can give you all the options. At JMF Group, our full range is extensive (we have posters in many different sizes), and our service is second to none. Get in touch today!
Is Your Artwork “Print-Ready” artwork?
In your search for the best A3 poster printing services, you’ve probably come across at least one site bombarding you with jargon: “dpi”, “colour profile”, “image sourcing”; unless you’re a graphic professional, these terms can leave you scratching your head! If you don’t know your RGB from your CMYK, don’t fret—our experts at JMF Group are here with a jargon-free checklist for getting your artwork ready for print.
Is Your Artwork the Proper Resolution?
For printed materials, a resolution of at least 300dpi is needed to result in a print of excellent quality.
Have You Included a Bleed?
There should be a 3mm gap around your artwork. Additionally, make sure all the important elements of your print or photo are within an additional 4mm of the edge. This “safe area” ensures none of the important stuff is lost!
Is Your Artwork Embedded in Your Design File?
Software like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator often “link to” a graphic file rather than embedding it. This reduces file size, but means your artwork is only visible on the machine it was created. Check your artwork is embedded before you upload files.
Is Your Colour Profile Correct?
RGB colour profiles are commonly used for screen-based projects, but they must be converted to CMYK before printing.
Fight for Your Right!
Do you have the poster printing rights to your artwork? Be careful when image sourcing for your project, as we can only print your own artwork, or that for which you have been granted permission from the artist. That cool photo of your favourite pop star might look great on your wall, but if you haven’t asked for permission it could get you in a heap of trouble!
