When should I use A2 paper for printing?

The A2 sheet is a highly recommended format when you want to let people know of a special event your brand will be hosting such as sports or concerts. This kind of paper format also makes for an ideal choice when you are planning to get calendars printed with your company logo to serve as promotional material.

For example, our double-sided posters are available in A2 sizes and can be printed on both sides. These posters are also heavier, which means that they are made of high-quality materials. Speaking of materials, you can choose from gloss and high-gloss with the latter being coated with UV or ultra-violet protection. This will keep your poster looking great despite exposure to direct sunlight, making it an ideal material for outdoor promotions.

Aside from this, we have blue-black posters which are also available in A2 paper format that can only be printed on only one side. This ensures that the backside does not show the image on the front, unlike other poster materials.

In addition, its medium-size format makes it a great choice to place on your windows. Furthermore, its non-transparent features add an extra dimension to the quality of your poster, making your design more bold and attractive. With these, you can count on our A2 poster size materials to get the attention of your target market.

Printing resolution for A2

The dimensions of an A2 sheet actually dates back to 1798 when the French government introduced the “grand registre” paper size, which was meant to promote the newly established metric system.
