They display just as well in natural daylight, but come to life when displayed in a theater light box.

How do you Print Film Festival Posters

When you need to print Film Festival Posters, typically what most film-makers are looking for is what’s often referred to as a one-sheet. It’s the standard size in which both major blockbuster and Film Festival Posters are printed.

In the United States, a Film Festival Poster Prints at a size of 27” x 40”, while in Europe, the standard Film Festival Poster Print size is 27” x 41”, though either size will typically be accepted by a theater. A standard one-sheet is printed as a double-sided print on paper, where the backside is printed at approximately 40-60% of the opacity as the front side print, and is printed in a mirror image so that the image lines up on both sides.

Challenges You’ll Face to Print Indie Film Posters

The difficulty with printing independent film posters is that you usually only need a few poster prints at a time per independent film festival or screening. And, true one-sheets require the use of off-set printing presses, which will require you to print a minimum of 500 independent film poster prints or more to get plated. This will take most of us out of budget for any particular project. Making the task of finding a true one-sheet Independent Film Poster print source even more challenging is the fact that most off-set printers aren’t large enough to print independent film posters at full-size, due to their sizing limitations. Most presses are 40” presses, and can only utilize 37.5” of their width for printing. But, there is a solution.
