SUBWAY POSTERS a/k/a
The subway sheet (sometimes referred to
as the two sheet) measures from 41 x 54 to 45x59 with the latter being the
most common. They are normally printed horizontally and issued folded. Although
it is sometimes referred to as the two sheet, it is not exactly twice the
size of a one-sheet.
Subway sheets are printed on a thicker paper
than are the one-sheets, but not as thick as a card stock. Most subway sheets
contain the same artwork as the advance materials, and are almost always
issued as "advances." They are most often found in subway displays. These
posters can be either rolled or folded.
Subway sheets still enjoy limited use in
New York and surrounding areas. They are rarely used outside of this geographic
AS A COLLECTIBLE
Some collectors like the subway sheet because
there are fewer of them released. They are somewhat large and cumbersome,
but because they are printed on a thick paper, they are more durable.
