Mylar posters are limited edition prints, either released
by movie studios or special limited edition authorized printers, that
are printed on a sheet of mylar plastic. The plastic is then coated with
either silver or gold paint and then the artwork is painted over the silver
or gold paint, leaving holes to allow the silver or gold base paint to
show through. Mylar posters are extremely colorful and attractive. Since
this is an expensive process, these posters are printed in limited numbers.
