Paper is one of the most affordable, versatile materials available in the sign development world. It is a useful canvas for full color prints, better for mass production, and can be placed almost anywhere indoors. It also takes minimal time to create a paper sign, sometimes with same day prints available depending on scheduling. At Blue Dot Signs in NJ, we can create both custom printed paper posters and hand painted paper posters. Each of these sign types is able to provide a unique sign that professionally represents your business and mirrors the look and feel of your brand.

While paper was the material of choice for window signs in the past, it has become less popular as newer materials like vinyl have taken its place. Yet paper posters offer a classic look, affordability, and an enormous potential for customization that continues to make them a useful sign for almost any design.
Our paper signs are available with either printed graphics or a hand painted design completed by one of our artisans. We typically use a base of heavyweight poster paper base that is available in many colors - from white and black to red, yellow, purpose - even fluorescents and metallics. Many posters are rectangular, but the paper can be cut into any shape. For rectangle posters, the common sizes are:
Paper posters much larger than this are often completed in a different material, such as foamboard, as this will give the poster additional stability. Blue Dot Signs is a large format printing and fabrication service, which means that no matter what size print you need, our team is likely able to develop it.
For printed paper posters, we use direct digital printing and UV-resistant inks for the design. White poster board produces graphics with highly saturated colors that are truer to the original shade. Colored poster board can impact the coloring and result in more muted tones, so it is important to consider the background in terms of the design. We are happy to offer advice whenever needed. Our hand painted paper posters are crafted individually by one of our artisans.
We use acrylic paints that blend well, display vibrantly, and create a smooth finish.
Paper signs are a unique, effective solution for many industries and uses. Hand painted paper signs have a very special appearance to them that customers appreciate, and prints can be mass produced in a way that is impossible or impractical with other types of sign products. Benefits of our paper signs include:
When handled carefully and used only indoors, paper signs can also last for months and be reused multiple times. They will eventually begin to show wear, but it is easy to change them out with similar or new design.
Because of their flexibility in terms of shape and design, paper posters can work in almost any location. Paper can be used to make:

Yes. We don’t use machines like printers to create our hand-painted signs. Each one is completely unique and entirely painted by hand by our skilled graphic designers.
They can be displayed outdoors in good weather for short periods of time. We don’t recommend they be permanently installed outdoors or left anywhere they could get wet. Laminating these signs can extend their lifespan dramatically.

If properly cared for, made of thicker poster paper, and protected with lamination, they can look great for months to years at a time.
Custom paper poster printing takes less time to make than paper signs that are hand-painted. If they’re not unusually large or don’t feature a particularly complex design, most can be created within one week. Faster turnaround times are possible with additional rush fees.
Most of our paper signs are printed or painted on white paper so that the colors show up the most accurately. However, we can also make them on colored paper at your request, including fluorescent colors.
We use primarily thicker poster paper to ensure they’re as durable as possible. We also use 220 GSM high gloss paper and .020 styrene. These increase the signs’ longevity and resistance to damage.
