How to Print Posters at Walmart?


If you don’t like the antique photo printing method, you might consider going with today’s latest printing technology: Inkjet HQ printing. You can get your hardcopy image printed from any nearby photo printing store.

Pros of Walmart’s Poster Printing Service

We found the following advantages after a while we kept ordering from Walmart:

  1. Industrial Grade Plotters. The most significant benefit of Walmart’s printing service is the industrial-grade plotter. Other local printing shops use typical Bryta and print your image on it through small personal inkjet printers. Walmart’s plotters do the same. However, their printing quality and image science are far better than a small inkjet printer. Moreover, the inkjet printer can distinguish between 4 million colors only. They offer better quality color reproduction and can differentiate between 9 million colors.
  2. Delivery within 1 hour. Just like Walgreens, Walmart also provides only 1-hour delivery. Once you order your image online at Walmart, you’ll receive your delivery within 1 hour of the order. While a local shop will take at least 8-12 hours to get your image ready on the stiff paper, Walmart will issue you an apology voucher if their delivery takes more than 1 hour!
  3. Easy Pickup. Walmart is America’s #1 brand which has the highest chain of stores. With over 10,500+ stores around the USA, you can find at least one store in your town. Therefore, the ease of pickup is best with Walmart. On the other hand, you need to cover a long distance to find a photo printing store because printing stores are usually rare.

How Long Does It Take for Posters to Print at Walmart?

Walmart claims that they’ll deliver your order within 1 hour.

However, if the store is busy or has many pending orders, the delivery time could increase from 1 hour. 

But there’s a trick for you!

If you want to get your delivery within an hour or even before, order your print during non-peak hours. At that time, there’s usually not much pending order so that you can get your delivery on time.

Walmart vs. CVS – Which Is The Best?

Talking about which company is better, both are good in their aspects. It all depends on your preferences and where you live. 

Still, both have some pros and cons that we've mentioned below.
  1. Delivery information. In terms of the delivery, both services work fine. Both claim to deliver your order within 1 hour. However, due to the load, Walmart might get late sometimes. But generally, both services are provided within a given timeline. 
  2. Image Quality. CVS uses inkjet printers to print your image on the baryta paper, while Walmart uses industrial printers for the printing. Industrial grade plotters can distinguish between 9 million colors. On the other hand, inkjet printers can differentiate between 4 million colors. Therefore, in terms of picture quality, Walmart is the clear winner. 
  3. Easy Pickup. Walmart has over 10,500+ stores all over the USA, while CVS has over 9,500+ stores all over the USA. More stores equals more ease of picking up the order because there’ll be high chances that the store is close to you. So, in terms of ease of pickup, Walmart is the clear winner

Walmart vs. Walgreens – Which Is The Best?

So now, let’s compare the Walmart poster printing service with the Walgreens poster printing service.

Please check out our previous article for more information on How to Print Photos at Walgreens.

In terms of delivery, both are equal. You can order their image delivery service through a 1 Hour App or directly from their official website.

However, Walgreens allows you to access their service on Android or IOS apps as well. Walmart’s poster printing service isn’t available on application. 

The only difference between Walmart and Walgreen's poster printing service was their cross-platform support that we've explained above. 

Besides this, both services are equal, and there’s no difference between them. Everything is the same, including their prices, the number of stores, printing sizes, and printing machines!

Walmart vs. Costco – Which Is The Best?

If we are talking about Walmart vs. Costco photo printing services, both have different business models, and both are entirely different from each other.

  1. Price and Sizing. In terms of price and sizing, Costco is the clear winner. They start at $0.11 only, where Walmart will cost you at least $0.8-$0.4 for the same size picture. In Costco, the $0.11 picture is 20×30 cm, which is the most miniature-sized image we’ve found so far. In comparison, Walmart’s sizing starts at 2×4, which will cost you about $2.
  2. Time of Delivery. Walmart is a clear winner! Costco will take about 5-8 business days to get your order delivered to your home or your nearby shop. In comparison, Walmart does this job in only 1 hour.
  3. Options. In terms of options, both come with a large set of customizations and printing options. However, Costco is close to some unusual and non-ordinary printing, while Walmart focuses more on the common printing choices in our daily lives.


If you’re looking for an image printing service in your nearby area, you might consider what we have written above. In this article, we’ve talked about the Walmart Poster Printing Service.

It's easy, convenient, fast, reliable, affordable, and provides a far better print quality than your local image printing store.
