Great print on demand service for straightforward posters.

Hesitant at first - because of all of the negative reviews I saw around online.

Low cost of entry - I caught AllPosters.com at a half-off sale event, so I figured for $6.50 per 24x36 poster, why not?

Posters - I think my posters look great! I purchased very graphics-heavy prints with large swatches of solid colors. There's no variance in the print quality at all--very smooth colors and very vibrant. The included receipt said it was a photo print so maybe that has something to do with the variable quality people have expressed? I've attached a photo of my posters compared to the images on the site on my laptop. Please note that computer screens and poster prints emit/refract light in completely different ways, so it's impossible to precisely print what's on a given, random screen.

Paper Quality - I found it to be a sturdy semigloss or satin finish. I would definitely believe it to be a 175gsm cover stock as suggested. The site says "medium weight cover stock," but what's the lbs or gsm? Unfortunately I don't know the exact weight specs. It definitely doesn't feel light. I've had prints from other online shops that are much heavier paper, but those tend to hold their curl more. The places I've ordered posters with lighter paper, I'm afraid of them ripping or tearing. I'll state again that I'm really happy with this cover weight for a poster.

Frames - I know nothing about AllPosters's framing service. But the images I've seen posted of crappy framing jobs suggests one should stay away. Go to a local framing gallery for similar prices if you want something high-end. Otherwise you can get a much cheaper plastic poster frame at a local hobby or crafts shop.

Customer Service/Returns - I was very happy with my purchase, so I don't know anything about their Customer Service or Returns process. However, each product page could probably include better, detailed specifications such as paper weight, paper finish, and printing reproduction (e.g. "photo print").

Shipping - This was an average shipping experience and it was what I expected. However, I made my purchase during the off-season (not during the holidays) and I didn't need it in a rush or anything. Additionally, I'd prefer retailers to roll posters image-out so that the curl doesn't affect hanging or framing; but this isn't unique to AllPosters. I think I've had only one place roll a print image-out and wrap it in protective paper. Oh well!

As the name suggests, they specialize in posters. Why try to get anything else from them?

Tip for consumers: This is a print-on-demand poster service. If you want to put down a large chunk of change for a piece of artwork, try something local and make sure you see it in-person before your purchase.
