- What Is Poster-Style Art Called?
The printing press may have been invented all the way back in the 15th century, but for a long time, creating mass-produced art using this technique was far too expensive.
It was not until the 19th century that poster art became more popular and readily available. While posters may have traditionally been associated with advertising, interior design trends have waxed and waned over the years to the point where these colourful prints now look at home placed on the living room wall as stuck to the side of a building.
While there is no strict name for poster-style art, it's generally considered to be a form of printmaking that combines graphic design elements, including typography, images, line, shape and colour.
Within our poster wall category, Urban Road stocks a comprehensive range of styles, from abstract to vintage. Whatever your aesthetic and personal preferences, there's a poster wall print for you.
- What's the Difference Between Premium Artwork and Posters?
When it comes to decorating your home or office space, there are infinite possibilities. Wall art and posters can both be great additions, but there are distinct differences between the two, and your choice can have a significant impact on the general atmosphere of your room.
Posters are generally printed on glossy paper and feature photographs, illustrations, typography, or other designs. The size of posters can vary greatly, and they tend to be relatively inexpensive compared to wall art.
Urban Road's range of posters is professionally giclee printed on high-quality art paper. Customers have the choice of whether they would prefer a framed or unframed poster and can also select from a range of sizes depending on their unique needs. If you're unsure which size poster will fit your space and design aesthetic, we encourage you to reach out to our friendly team through our Design Service.
Here at Urban Road, we live and breathe design and love helping our customers design their dream spaces. The process is simple: take photos of your room and provide measurements of the space. Fill out a questionnaire to help us learn more about your style and design preferences. From this information, we will create a digital mood board you can use to help narrow down the vast selection of posters, art prints, and more on our website.
We offer a Free Basic Package of this service (using the code 100% off) in addition to a Basic Package starting at $49 and a Refresh Package costing $69. Our Design Service is an affordable and accessible way of improving the look and feel of your home.
- What Kind of Paper Is Used for Wall Poster Prints?
Our posters are giclee printed on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, acid-free art paper. We use vibrant, fade-resistant inks to ensure a durable, long-lasting product.
Urban Road is passionate about offering customers the opportunity to decorate their homes in an affordable and accessible way. As a result, we often recommend our posters to those looking to upgrade their space at a slightly lower price point.
In saying that, our wall posters are made from high-quality materials and will instantly add a touch of style and colour to your space.
- Do Posters Look Better Glossy or Matte?
Matte or glossy? It's a tough choice when you're deciding on a poster. Some people prefer the sleek, shiny look of glossy posters, while others prefer the more understated appearance of matte. Here are a few things to consider when making your decision.
Gloss paper is more susceptible to dust and fingerprints, so if you are planning on decorating your room with this type of print, it's best to also invest in a frame. Matte paper, on the other hand, might be less sensitive to smudges, meaning they're a good option regardless of your display choice and can confidently be hung in high-traffic areas without risk of dirt and damage.
Matte posters have a smooth finish that is less affected by glare. They are also less likely to fade in sunlight, making them ideal for display in rooms that receive a lot of natural light.
While some people prefer the vibrancy of a gloss print, there's no doubt that there's a certain sophistication and elegance to a matte finish, which is why Urban Road prints our vast range of posters on natural white, matte, ultra-smooth, acid-free paper.
- How to Decorate a Wall With Posters
Posters are a great way to add personality to a room without spending a significant amount of money. We all know that design styles can change, and keeping up with the latest trends isn't always an affordable task. Investing in poster art is an accessible alternative that will ensure you can create beautiful, stylish gallery walls that can be easily changed in line with trending designs.
Keep in mind that simply tacking up a few posters in a haphazard manner can create a cluttered, uncoordinated look. With a little planning, however, it is possible to create a stylish and cohesive display that reflects your tastes and personality.
Here are a few top tips for decorating your wall with posters:
- Choose posters that complement the overall style of the room. If you have a modern space, look for unique illustrations or photos. For a more traditional room, choose a tropical landscape or watercolour illustration. Consider, too, how you might work with the existing colour scheme of your space. A green poster can pair perfectly with green cushions or bring out the cool undertones of a rug.
- Choose a central location for your posters. A wall near the centre of the room or above furniture is usually a good spot. If you have multiple posters, evenly spacing them will create a more cohesive look and consider maximising negative space to ensure the wall doesn't look too overcrowded.
- Consider framing your posters. This can give them a more polished look and help them blend in with your other décor. Urban Road offers frames in black, white, or natural unfinished timber and in a variety of sizes, depending on the dimensions of the poster. More information can be found by consulting the product description of each poster.
- How Do You Put Posters on Your Wall?
While posters are an easy and affordable way to upgrade your space, putting them on your walls without causing damage can be a challenge.
There are plenty of products out there that allow you to hang posters and wall art in a safe manner, including stripes, hooks, nails, or even placed on a mantlepiece leaning against the wall.
The other point to consider is what spot on the wall to place the poster. You want to pick a spot where the poster will be visible but dominate the room. A good rule of thumb is to hang it at eye level and with an appropriate amount of negative space surrounding it.
