Most posters that you see are portrait posters. These posters are the most widely used form of poster printing and owing to the fact that the background wall space is easier to match with the help of these posters, it has gained its huge popularity. Commercial businesses and trade shows make use of this type of posters for their marketing or display purposes.
Although a rare choice, landscape posters are also created, especially if the background wall space has special requirements. Here at QinPrinting, we have expertise in printing perfect landscape posters of different sizes based on your needs and requirements. A landscape poster has a wider view, and therefore, would suit best for artworks that require such specifications.

Posters are printed for a wide range of uses. These include movie posters, commercial posters, cultural posters, art posters, and many others.
Commercial posters refer to those produced to promote goods or services of a company. The design and style of a commercial poster need to be aligned with the audience and reflect the brand, products or services. The design often needs to conform to a particular set of style or brand guidelines.
Social posters are generally used to provide information to the wider public community rather than promoting products or services. These can often take the form of educational and public health messages. Social posters are often very creative in order to catch the attention of the audience. They are often displayed in public places such as schools, colleges, hospitals, and libraries.
Cultural posters are printed to promote various socio-cultural activities and exhibitions. Many political, social or cultural exhibitions take place all around the world and all of these exhibitions have particular themes associated with them. It is important to have posters printed based on these themes in order to promote and market the exhibitions. The design of the posters needs to accurately portray the purpose of the exhibition.
Movie posters are produced to promote particular movies and generally include the main characters and actors, along with the title boldly displayed. High-resolution pictures, graphics, and punchy colors are used to catch the attention of customers. These posters need to reflect the theme of the movie.
Posters are often produced in large sizes and require specialist packing. We use two methods to pack our posters. The first method involves packaging the poster flat in a carton. If the posters are shipped by sea, we pack the carton on top of a pallet, and the pallet is then shrink-wrapped. For shipment via air, the pallet is not used, and the carton is packed and taped on the outside.
If you are an online poster seller, we use a second method to pack your posters. This involves packaging each poster inside a tube. The tube is then packed inside a carton. If the posters are shipped via sea, we pack the carton on top of a pallet, and the pallet is then shrink-wrapped. With air shipment, for example by FedEx, the pallet is not used, and the carton is packed and taped on the outside.
Note that the shipping and packaging cost for tube packing is higher than non-tube packing, especially if you take into account the air shipping cost. Using tubes adds a lot to the total volume of the shipment and much of the extra cost is calculated on this. Keep this in mind before choosing your method for packaging.
