Large format

DPS offer excellent large format printing on a variety of surfaces. Our latest equipment prints from rolls up to 60" wide allowing us to produce your banner stands, pop-up displays, posters and canvasses in-house - keeping funds and quality control on campus.


Short, medium and long run poster requirements are no problem. We handle them with minimum fuss and at competitive prices. We stock a range of poster grade papers from draft (for plans and drawings) to resilient photo satin.

We print in high resolution with vibrant colours giving your posters real sparkle. Perfect for exhibitions, lectures announcements, notices areas or departmental photographs. We offer additional services such as over-lamination and mounting onto foamboard.

We can supply tubes (up to A0) to keep your posters safe and Velco hook-and-eye dots to hold them in place.

Please allow up to 5 working days for your poster or banner to be printed. If you are in a hurry for your order, please give us a ring on 8085 to discuss.
