TPI Solutions Ink Blog: Grad Party Poster & Logo Design Success!


grad-party-poster   Aaaah, we got through the weekend and I am pleased to report that the grad party was a great success! The color poster that was designed and printed for Emily was a big hit with the crowd! Both the teenagers and the adults loved it. And, because the poster was mounted on gator board, it was perfect for displaying on an easel at the party. It was easy for everyone to notice and to sign. We didn't let the rain spoil our fun or damage the poster!


The final size of the grad party poster was 2'x3' - this is one of the more common sizes that we tend to print at TPI. Our graphic designer, Diana created the poster in Adobe InDesign. She incorporated her logo design with some terrific photographs that she took at Emily's graduation ceremony. The poster was created at half size, 12"x18", and then it was enlarged to 200% when it was sent to the HP Designjet for printing. Creating the poster at half size is beneficial because the file size is much smaller, making it less time consuming to upload or download and taking up much less disk space. As long as high resolution photos are used in the original file the large format poster will look great!
