Difference between a Poster and Print

Quality, qUALITY, qualitY! The main difference between a poster and a print can be summed up in one word - quality.

By "quality" we do not necessarily mean that prints have more vibrant colors and are more beautiful than posters. This is not true. As a matter of fact, there is no actual visual difference between the two.

The main difference is seen after a few years, where posters undergo a color degradation while art prints still look brand new as prints are image impressions made on a superior paper grade.

For commercial and mass-production purposes, both posters and art prints are printed by lithography, a printing method invented in 1798 by Alois Senefelder.

It is estimated that on average, art prints retain the image quality at least 5 times longer than posters and cost only a few dollars more. Therefore, if you want an artwork for long-term decorative purposes, we highly recommend you purchase art prints instead of posters.
