Reindeer Free Printable Poster
The eight reindeer of traditional lore are celebrated in this Christmas typographic artwork. The names of the reindeer originate in the 1823 poem by Clement C. Moore, "A Visit from St Nicholas", popularly known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas".
And he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
"On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!

Printing Your Poster
Is my printer good enough?
Most home inkjet printers these days are excellent quality, even the cheaper ones. The key to getting really good quality prints is to use the right paper...
What kind of paper should I use?
I recommend using matte photo paper. The vibrancy of the colors and crispness of text you get when using photo paper are leagues ahead of what you get using regular office paper. Ideally you should use the same brand of photo paper as your printer, or else stick to a well-known brand like Canon, HP, or Epson.
If you're giving an unframed print as a gift, then it's important for the paper to feel thick and high quality. It's worth getting the best quality matte paper that you can afford, like "Canon Luster Photo Paper" or "Canon Semi Gloss".
If you're giving a framed print as a gift, then the thickness of the paper is less important so long as the colors are vibrant. In that case a thinner photo paper like "Canon Matte Photo Paper" would be a good option - that's the paper I personally use most of the time.
Can I just print it at Kinkos instead?
Yes! That's a good option too, and many of our customer choose to do this.
Framing Your Poster
What type of frame
Personally I like "matted" frames, which are ones that have a white border around the poster. I think they look great, and they also make your gift feel bigger and more substantial. If you ever visit an high-end photography gallery you'll notice that this is the type of frame that they use, simply because they look fantastic.
Where to buy a frame
In the USA, you can get a great-looking frame for about $14. I recommend
8 x 10" photo frames from Amazon
8 x 10" photo frame from Walmart
In the UK, the best place I've found to get frames is Hobbycraft. You can get a 30 x 40 cm frame (to hold an A4 poster) for about £10.
