Printify negotiates the best prices for custom merchandise including custom posters, as well as printing and shipping costs to make sure you have the best custom product in your portfolio at the lowest possible production and fulfillment costs.

Custom posters with no minimum

One of the greatest advantages of working with print on demand is that you only print products after you make a sale and are ready to be fulfilled.

This doesn’t mean you can only sell one product per order but it means that you get custom posters with no minimum and can also be ordered in bulk. This also means that no matter how large your custom poster printing business gets, you will never run out of stock that results in backorders and delays.

An added advantage of custom posters with no minimum is you can sell them in gallery wall bundles. Bundling is a marketing tactic used to boost sales by selling multiple items in sets.

Gallery wall posters are one way to maximize your sales for your custom poster business. For photography posters, following the photography rule of thirds, selling custom photo posters in threes is another bundling opportunity. Custom posters with no minimums allow you to generously bundle and sell without worrying about inventory or stock keeping.

Poster printing design ideas

Home decor and office decor are ways to make the places we spend most of our lives as homely and comfortable as possible. Custom print posters in various sizes serve as statement pieces to create a personalized environment. Motivational quotes, quotes by your favorite TV show characters, artsy photos, movie posters, and more are fun and easy ways to change the mood and feel of your space.

When deciding on what to use to decorate a space, custom poster prints can help elevate the feeling of the entire experience. They can make people associate the space with relaxation or destination. In fact, research shows that local landscapes are a great seller for printed art in resorts while seascapes are good at beach vacation destinations.

Custom posters are a great addition to destination rental properties because their impressionistic style landscapes sell particularly well. You can customize each poster design to match specifically to your client’s tastes and preferences, or room design and layout. Other popular design choices include:
