    Happy summer, everyone!

    Does anyone know if Trent Graphics/Beyond the Wall is still operating and doing poster sales? I cannot, for my life, find a website for them and the phone number I find on the web isn't working any longer.  I know that the last year that I was at Millikin, we used a different company - but I can't remember the name of that company.  What are y'all doing in this area - if anything?

    Hi Z Paul,
    We are using Poster Invasion ( and have had much better customer service with them. We have used Trent Graphics/Beyond the Wall in the past.

    Hi! We have been working with The College Poster Sale Company for the last few years at Kalamazoo College. It's been a good partnership, they're always kind and easy to work with! Happy to pass along contact info if you'd like.

    Hi Z Paul--I'm not sure about Beyond the Wall. For several years we have been using The Poster Sale Company at Iowa State. We did an informal RFP this summer and received proposals from them and from Poster Invasion which is a newer company (I believe the owner used to be with one of the other two but has branched out). Both have definite positives so you might take a look at those two. Happy to answer any questions if I can.

    I have worked with Stella Petrocelli for at least 13+ years since the years she worked at Trent Graphics/Beyond the Wall- she's been with The Poster Sale Company...   She rocks and they have been very good to us and we continue to do business.   The year she transitioned from Beyond the Wall ( tough year) I did work with Paul Kennedy at Global Prints.  He was good to work with too.

    We use the College Poster Sale company. They are easy to work with, provide promotional materials and we negotiate a portion of sales to be paid back to our programming board. 
    Here is their contact:

    Hey y'all!

    We've used both College Poster Sale (CPS) and Poster Invasion in the past and I can confindently say you cannot go wrong with either. We ended up doing an RFP for a three year proposal and CPS won on the basis of the percentage of sales offered back to us. However, both compaines are easy to work with, dependable and most of all students love the products.
