Do I need to laminate my poster for the Waterbase Pavement Sign? Is it waterproof?
Pavement signs and A boards we manufacture here at UK POS are water resistant and suitable for prolonged use outdoors.
However, we always recommend that you print your posters on PVC based paper. PVC poster paper is weather resistant, so using this when printing your graphics will ensure they aren’t damaged by heavy rain or condensation while being used outdoors.
Remember, a poorly kept pavement sign or A board could reflect negatively on your business, and have an impact on the amount of footfall your store receives. This is why we always suggest to our customers that it’s worth the extra investment to print on PVC poster paper.
Do you also offer a printing service?
Ordering prints is easy. Once you have placed your order you will receive an email with a link to upload the artwork you’d like to use. All you need to do is make sure your artwork meets the following requirements:
- The artwork has been designed in CMYK
- It has been saved in one of the following formats: pdf, jpeg, tiff or eps
- Send up to 2GB

Do you print onto your leaflet dispensers and if so at what cost?
Yes, we do print onto leaflet dispensers and acrylic products and we normally have a minimum order quantity of 100 for this service. However, if you require a smaller quantity we would be more than happy to look at the more cost effective option of applying vinyl adhesives.
The cost of printing onto the leaflet dispensers depends on how many colours there are in the print that you require. If you’d like any more information please don’t hesitate to contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0845 450 3848 between 8.30-17.30 Monday to Friday.

I can’t drill into the wall do you have any alternative options for displaying my posters?
Of course, we understand that sometimes it simply isn’t convenient or possible to drill holes into walls. That’s why we offer snap frames, which can be used with foam adhesive pads, plus our acrylic poster holders and acrylic showcard poster sleeves can be used with adhesive fixings.
This means you can still promote your business just as effectively, but don’t need to worry about drilling.
