Quest For Perfect Posters
Perfection is an elusive standard for paper posters. Without a bump, fingerprint, or dent, human anatomy posters must print, ship to publishers, be warehoused, ship to retailers, be stored, and ship to customers. Anywhere along the process, cumulative damage can result.
With a high standard for perfection, there is more waste. Some publishers must reship posters two or three times. The price of extra waste raises the value and price of perfect posters. Even if it is possible to maintain perfect quality on the retail shelf, it must be packed in a manner that prevents damage on the last trip. Better shipping materials cost more money. A custom-cut flat box can cost $12 on top of delivery fee. Crush-proof tubes can cost $4–5.
Large stacks of damaged posters ship back to the publisher. Smaller amounts with slight bends are sold for cost in the closeouts section of this site. There is considerable labor to maintain closeouts. They must be alphabetized and inventoried. They require product pages. Before shipping they may require laminating and trimming.

So whether you want framed posters or other finishing options, ClinicalPosters is as perfect as you can get.
