Telford, PA (PressExposure) October 14, 2009 -- It is not just businesses that avail of professional posters printing services these days. Many private individuals have thought to print posters of their own as gifts and novelty items for friends and family.
Still, it can be much easier for private individuals to do a little printing of their own, even with just a limited knowhow about computers. Do you want to know how this can happen? Well then, read on and you will know eventually how to print personal posters of your own for friends and family.
1. Picking the right personal image - The first step in printing person posters is choosing the right "personal image" This of course depends entirely on your taste. Will you use an old family picture? Will you use some quaint painting or image that has meaning to your friends? Can a funny picture of you give them a laugh? Whatever the case, you should find that right image, and make sure it is good for poster printing.
It is best to look for high-resolution images for these personal images since this works well with most kinds of printing. If you do not have high-resolution images, then you should take new photographs of what you want, or maybe you can scan the images that you need. As long as you pick the right kind of image, you will have a nice start to producing your personal posters.
2. Downloading a poster template - The second step is finding a poster template. If you are a novice at these things, poster templates should be the best thing for you. You can easily acquire templates online free at printing websites, or with a simple Google search. Once downloaded, you should then have a nice foundation to build up your initial design. Of course, try to download a good template, with the proper file format as well as the proper dimensions and guidelines.
3. Creating a personal color poster design - With your template ready, you should then be able to start your design of your personal poster. Using your favorite imaging software, just place your main poster image as the background of your template document, and then add the text and other design elements that are needed for the design. Of course, try to be as creative as possible. Try out several drafts to get the best design as possible.
4. Printing your personal posters - Once you have chosen your winning personal design, your last hurdle is with printing. If you are new to printing posters, I recommend just hiring an online poster printing service to do all the printing for you. You can find lots of these services online. You just need to send your online payment as well as your poster design and everything should be fixed. You can have your new personal color posters delivered to your home or office. It is that simple.
As you can see, it is very possible for anyone to create personal posters. Why not try them out as gifts for the next special occasion?
