A2 Printing

A2 printing size is 420 mm by 594mm (or 23.39 by 16.53 inches).  You can either print directly on and use this size (for example a poster or notice).  Alternatively, you can print on A2 and then fold it half to produce an A3 portfolio.  This is the professional way to display your portfolio of work.. 

You can discover the benefits of doing this in our page on A3 printing.

Let me ask you:

Do you want to display your design artwork or marketing portfolio to  prospects and clients in a large A3 brochure format?

Do you want to promote your events in a noticeable and stylish manner?

Do you need to keep your employees or visitors informed about certain procedures and policies?

If you have answered yes to any of the above, then A2 printing is the solution that you have been looking for.


With Brightside, you can choose from a range of finishes and paper weights.  The most common weights are 100, 120, 140, 160, 250 or 350 gsm (grams per square meter).  

The weight you choose depends on your requirements.  For example, if you are looking to use your poster as temporary signage for an event then 120-160 gsm is fine. 

If you want to professionally show your art and design, then 250 gsm would work better.  If you are looking for permanent signage on policies and procedures, then 350gsm is more durable and makes a better impact. 


A2 Poster Printing

A2 posters are a great solution for promoting:

  • Clubs
  • Restaurants
  • Events
  • Signage at exhibitions etc.


They give you more than enough room for a compelling headline, great photos and details (such as directions, a large printed address, key contact details etc.).  These posters are typically printed on 120, 140 or 160 gsm.  They give you considerably more room than A3 and are far more noticeable.


A2 Printing to Share Information

You might work in an office or workplace where it is vital that you share information on policies and procedures, especially those involving Health and Safety.  A sturdy A2 poster can contain a large amount of text along with plenty of diagrams or photos showing the process or procedure.

We recommend a paper weight of 250 or 350 gsm for these so they can be stuck directly to the wall.  These weights are more resilient and will look good for longer than the lighter paper stock.

You have a wide range of options.  Contact our friendly team today on 0207 613 7070 to see how we can help you win more business or communicate better with your staff using A2 printing.
