I need some pretty quick feedback if at all possible. I'm processing sports posters as we speak for our annual banquet. Last year, I got them in lustre, as that was the only finish available from the vendor. Now I have a new vendor who offers not only lustre, but also glossy and Fuji Pearl Metallic.
I have to order these tonight before I go to bed and wanted to get some input from those who also offer sports posters.

Which finish would you choose?

I'd stay with what you had last year as its a good all round finish.

May I ask where you get these done? I am going to be going to our high schools banquet in hopes of selling some picture I have taken during the season. I wanted to blow up a few images to show them off.

Any advice (sorry for the topic hi-jack)

I'd guess Mpix.com. I've used them for a few years and have no problems...

No, I"m using Elcocolor. They're much less expensive and turn out a great product. They have a web special for posters that really kicks up the old profit margin. ;)
I've also used Winkflash in the past with great results.

Well I am going to give them a try, for those prices why not!

I ordered 2 print, 1 is a lustre and one is a Metallic both are 20x30.
