Printing Guide

All of the posters and printables on this website are free and you can print and display them for your home, library or school. Some tips for DIY printing:

  • Make sure that you’re printing the high quality files. Check the dimensions of the image. If it’s under 1000 pixels wide then you don’t have the high quality version.
  • If you are printing on A4 or A3 paper, just use the default software that comes with your printer or computer.
  • If you want to print a large poster made up of several A4 or A3 pages, I recommend using Microsoft Excel (not Microsoft Word). Paste the image in, set the print area (File, Print Area, Set Print Area), and then make the image as large as you want.
  • If you are printing a gigantic poster and want an even higher quality file, contact me. Click to send me an email.
  • Cutting off the white space around the edge of a poster after printing will make it look more professional.
  • I once found an empty ibuprofen blister pack in the back of my printer. If you’re having troubles printing, check inside the back of your printer!

If printing professionally:

  • Please use that small locally owned printing shop at that shopping arcade that no one goes to anymore (yet somehow you still can’t find a parking space). You know the shop. It looks like it’s about to shut down. The big places might be cheaper, but the big places won’t be able to recommend the best fish and chip shop in town.
  • If you’re getting your posters professionally printed, drop me an emailand I’ll make sure you get a high quality CMYK file that your local printer will understand.

Always wash your hands after going to the toilet. Eat more vegetables. Tell your friends about librarywalls.com.
