    Default Offset quality classic poster printing sources (not giclee) Big 'O' style?

    Sorry if I have this in the wrong category. Does anyone have any leads on printing full color glossy posters in the classic style of the Big 'O' posters? What I mean by that is the old school type of posters from 70s/80s, rock and art posters . Nothing "archival" or fine art but the sort of thing you'd find in a headshop 35 years ago.
    I hope this isn't too vague, maybe someone knows what I mean.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's just CMYK on cheap, 80 lb text glossy paper. Pretty much any commercial offset printer in the world can do that for you.

    Maybe I'm missing something but EVERY commercial print shop I've ever used could easily produce that. It's what they specialize in. I'm sure Luther could recommend some place in NYC for you.

    Tuffy is right, any run of the mill print shop could reproduce something like that. It's basic CMYK offset printing and the bread and butter of the industry.
