Nice fabric conference poster for <$120
I've used MakeSigns for my conference posters for years. Recently I've started using their fabric posters to avoid having to carry a poster tube through an airport (and facing the possibility of having to check it in the luggage). The fabric posters are nice. The texture of the fabric is fine, so that it doesn't cut down much on how it looks, although if your work uses a lot of images with very high resolution detail you might still be better off using the standard glossy paper. Fonts as small as 12 pt are easily read. And as with most printouts, you might want to lighten up those darker images a bit, because what's on your computer screen will be brighter than how it looks printed out. Despite the loss of detail (and I do use a lot of images in my work) and the slightly higher printing cost (the cost of printing has come down over the years, so fabric posters essentially cost what paper posters used to), the convenience of not having to carry a poster tube means I'm unlikely to go back to paper posters.
