We now offer Tri-Fold Posters!

Tri Fold Poster

We can print your research poster and mount it to a tri-fold presentation board. We ship your display board in a sturdy shipping box to reduce the possibility of damage. The poster is a semi-gloss finish and is water resistant. The total size of the tri-fold display is 36" high by 48" wide. Each "flap" is 12" wide and the center section is 24" wide. Your file must be in a 3:4 aspect ratio for the tri-fold poster option to be available when you order. Our Tri-Folds are $109.95 plus shipping.

Which would you rather have?

We put our premium microporous glossy paper and water resistant inks to the test.

Not all paper is the same. To prove this, we did a side-by-side water resistance test—putting a typical competitor's glossy poster paper up against our MAKESIGNS.COM glossy poster paper. We sprayed each poster with water, then wiped our dry hand through the wet area. Our poster was not affected. The other poster was ruined as the ink turned into a slimy mess. You can see the results below.
