We print movie posters for independent filmmakers as well as advertising agencies, marketing agencies and major motion pictures studios around Los Angeles all the time. One-sheets, movie posters and backlit film are the 3 common product requests we get all the time. But what’s the difference between all three of those? Good question! Let’s talk about this more a little later. So when you need a movie poster for LA Film Fest 2018 or any other film festival, give us a call! LA Film Festival 2018 is running Sep 20, 2018 – Sep 28, 2018.
Common Movie Poster Sizes are either 27” x 41” or 27” x 40”. However, we’ve produced custom size movie posters too. Sometimes, the promotional poster design and location where it will be placed require something smaller or larger. A bus shelter is a good example of a very large movie poster that measures up to 45” x 70”. If you need a movie poster for LA Film Festival 2018 that measure up to 45” x 70”, SLB Printing can do that too.
What’s the difference between a One-Sheet, Movie Poster and Backlit Film? Well, there is no difference between the one-sheet & movie poster, it’s just a name. However, the backlit film describes a material that is used in a light box while standard poster printing on either matte or semi-gloss material is for front lit job requirements. We can also mount front lit posters on foam core when they are to be displayed on an easel. Lastly, if you want to go really big, we have a giant double wing easel option that is used for theater lobby displays measuring up to 48” wide by 96” tall. How’s that for getting your film noticed!
