      In fact, poster printing is done in both the new way(s) and the old
      way(s) in the US, just as it is done the new way(s) and the old
      way(s) in the UK.

      Some billboards are printed on paper, some on vinyl, some on fabric,
      some on plastic strips (rotating displays), etc. Some are printed
      using inkjet processes, some using photographic methods, some using
      screenprint, some using offset litho...
      Although some are less common than others, there is *no* single
      method or medium.


      BTW, Wikipedia is probably better described as the fount of all
      rumours, not all knowledge. It is a good resource, but it should
      never be regarded as a definitive souce of information; always
      cross-check and be ready to reassess or even disregard what's
      published there.

      And in fact a fair amount of what's said in that particular article
      makes too-broad assumptions, is misleading or, in some cases, is
      simply untrue. It is also missing key information, for example
      explanations of 48-sheet or 96-sheet posters/billboards.
