I recall their sales guy telling me they do print posters. If you're interested in those products, that may be possible. I would send (a different) Dan an email - dan@lob.com.
I used them for postcards in my mailings to customers. Had a few rough points since it was just when they started but they handled everything well and improved the product a lot recently. I think they have a great service, the key for them is finding the best use cases so that they can print money. With the ability to do so much it may be hard for folks to pick out what exactly they need from the service. I'm a believer.
So far they seem to be focused on marketing and business opportunities, but I'd love to see more consumer-focused offerings: gift cards, photo books, posters, etc. So many consumer products could offer these things if it were easier to integrate printing.
Good call, I've been meaning to ping them about this.
