Printing Services San Francisco – Who does Same Day Printing?
Walk down a typical street in any major city, like San Francisco, and you’ll see posters hanging all over the place; in shop windows, on utility poles, buses, and benches.
Walk into a shopping centre or public building and you’ll be sure to find a variety of posters telling you what to buy or where to go.
Posters have long been an eye catching way for advertisers to get their message across. SFBayPosters.com understands that since our inception! But until recently, poster printing has also been somewhat expensive.
Prior to the development of digital printing technology, the most common method for poster printing was lithography.

Lithography is an offset printing process which involves creating an image on a plate, then using that plate to transfer the image to a rubber blanket and then to the paper.
A system of water repulsion is used to protect non-printed surfaces from absorbing ink.
Lithography provides extremely crisp and clean prints especially where photographs are used as part of the image.
But the downside is cost. On a per-piece basis, Lithograph printing is cost-prohibitive for small quantities, because set-up time for the press is built into the price. Regardless of how many prints are being made, set-up costs are the same.
The only way to bring the per-piece price down is to order in large quantities. It’s not uncommon for printers to have minimum quantity requirements in order to justify the time and expense of press set-up.
Advances in digital printing are revolutionizing poster printing as well the entire print industry.
Layouts and images are now often designed before hand by the customer and delivered to the printer on a disc. This eliminates the need for the services of the print shop’s in-house layout department, saving time and money.
With digital there are no plates to prepare, no inks to blend, and no monitoring of presses to assure consistency.
Digital printing uses large-scale inkjet printers attached to a standard desktop computer.
A minor amount of image manipulation might be required to match the image to the printer’s format, but once that’s done it only takes a mouse click and you’re off and printing.
And modern fade-resistant inks mean a final product which rivals lithography in overall quality.
Additionally, the efficiency and speed of digital printing today result in a lower cost per piece for smaller jobs.
It virtually guarantees a consistent product throughout the run and also allows further runs be produced with no additional set-up.
For individual consumers, digital printing offers them the ability to make a poster or two for their own family gatherings, holidays, and other special occasions without ever leaving home.
Images can be created on the home computer then uploaded to the site of an online print shop. One just needs to enter payment and shipping information and then wait for his posters to arrive. It couldn’t be simpler.
There’s still plenty of room for both lithography and digital in the world of poster printing.
Each has its advantages and disadvantages depending on customer needs. Yet regardless of which process is used, one thing’s for certain: the print industry continues to evolve.
Welcome to Poster Printing at MERIT.
Hi! I need to print something right now.
It's an 8 1/2 by 11 PowerPoint that I need to be printed as a 36 by 48 poster.
Can you please help me out? Because I need to have this printed and be in my car and on the way to the conference in about 5 minutes.
Alright, so we can definitely do that for you.
Except first, we need you to resize your slide to the dimensions you want for your poster, and then save it as a PDF.
So while you do that, we’ll put you in line and you’re after two other people that are also printing posters for the same conference as you.
So, just so you know, it takes about 30 minutes to print a 36 by 48 size poster and we only have one printer.
[falls to ground] Don’t let this happen to you.
For stress-free poster printing start with the right size document, have one dimension less than 41 inches, use high resolution images, proof-read your poster, bring your file to MERIT in PDF format, allow enough time to print, and have money on your Wiscard or printing account.
First, start with the right size document.
In Adobe products, such as Illustrator, you can set the width and height of your project when you start a new document.
To set the size of your slide in PowerPoint, go to File to Page Setup, and from there enter the width and height.
This is especially important in PowerPoint, because if you resize your slide after the fact, the different objects within your PowerPoint won't scale very well.
If you are given a department template with the wrong dimensions, resize your template in the beginning, or ask your department for a template with the right dimensions.
It’s important to keep in mind that one dimension must be 41 inches or less in order to fit on our poster printer.
Always use high resolution images for your poster.
While an image might look okay on your screen, when you print it at a large size, it may start looking pixelated.
It is always a good idea to use 300 dpi, or dots per inch images on your poster.
It is important to proof-read your poster.
You can use spell check, of course, but it is also important to have a person look at it as well.
Ask a friend, or a mentor, or go the Writing Center to get help with your draft.
Once it is proof-read and ready to go, bring your file to MERIT in PDF format.
This will ensure that we can get your poster started printing swiftly.
Allow enough time to print your poster.
Our poster printer is available on a first come first served basis.
It takes about a half hour for a 36 inch by 48 inch poster to print.
And finally, have money on on your Wiscard or printing account to pay for your poster once it's printed.
You can learn more about your options for payment on the library’s website on its Ways to Pay page which is also linked below this video.
So remember, start with the right size document, have one dimension less than 41 inches, use high resolution images, proof-read your poster, bring your file to MERIT in PDF format, allow enough time to print, and have money on your Wiscard or printing account.
And if you do these things, you will have poster printing success.
For additional help, know you can always contact a MERIT Librarian.
