Have you had made and then sold, or bought custom printed posters? Or even just had them made? At 18x24 inches especially. I see Vistaprint will make them for $12 each, but I have no idea how the quality is, and I might need them too soon anyway; october 26 is about the latest I can deal with them.

I haven't ordered posters before, but I've had stickers and glossy prints done through both Vistaprint and Posterjack. I don't have a professional eye, but the quality seemed quite high through both ways to me. Though of course the darks always wind up darker than you imagine. That or I've been blinding myself with monitors which are much too bright.

I think you might be taking a bit of a chance with value levels if you order online. Especially if you can't really test or preview them with a trial run beforehand. But the quality should be good.

Indeed, the bigger the page, the bigger the mistakes look.  I am reluctant to take many chances with posters because for whatever reason they are exponentially more expensive to get made than the 11x8.5 inch prints, which rarely cost much more than a dollar, and I have bought forty of those at once, and only sold a few (or the new ones).  To buy 40 poster-sized prints I would have to borrow money, and not necessarily be able to pay it back in the end!

I should definitely not make a 18x24 size one before I have seen a 11x8.5 one out of the same system.

'Poster' sounds fancier than 'print', therefore we can charge 10x more!
