    I have a customer who builds and sells commercial property (mainly dorms/apartments. They currently have a building under construction and they asked for four "poster boards" (36" x 72"). From what they said, two will be hung inside the windows and two will be mounted outside on the plywood that is cover part of the exterior of the building. I know I probably sound stupid, but by poster board does he mean PVC foam board? Hope all of the makes sense, any suggestions are much appreciated!

    Go to Wal*Mart and get a roll of Packaging paper, put a Blue Sharpie in the plotter. That works great for posters.

    .060 Polystyrene is what I would use, I use it all the time for simi-temporary exterior signs, it has to be mounted to plywood & it's light weight enough to hang in a window.

    We print on poster paper for those type clients. They simply tape them inside the windows. For outside, coroplast.
