Posters are a brilliantly effective tool for point of sale, event display or advertising. They can make a big impact for a relatively small investment.

Follow the tips below to get the right poster with maximum impact.

Poster Design
& Marketing

Know what you want to say

Decide the main point viewers need to know, and stick to it. Don’t lose focus or your poster will lose impact. Keep copy simple, with only essential information.

Sell with benefits

Put yourself in the mind of the customer. Sell your product, service or event with the benefit
to the viewer in mind.

Use high quality images

Great images are the best way to attract attention. One large image makes much more impact than lots of small, busy images.

Use a professional for design and printer

Intelligent design will increase the impact of your poster immensely, and high quality print reproduction will enhance viewer perception.

Which material should I use?

The environment in which you use your poster, the length of time it needs to last, and of course your budget will determine which substrate is the best choice.

What Poster size is right for my project?

Standard sizing for posters uses the same A series system we use for smaller printed items. Each size is twice the area of the previous size.

  • A3 – 420 x 297mm (double the size of A4)
  • A2 – 420 x 594mm (double A3)
  • A1 -840 x 594mm
  • A0 – 1188 x 840mm

Of course, if you need a non-standard size, that’s no problem – posters are printed on a wide format machine and cut to size, so customization is possible

What others did with POSTERs

    I started out with a standard business card – because after all, business cards
    are just one of those things you have to have so there’s no need to invest much time or money in them, is there?

    Funnily enough, people would look at my card, and I could almost see them wiping me out of their minds and off their list of people to do business with. Then I heard Vivienne Kane of Minuteman Press talk about the power of business cards, and she showed me a business card I loved, and connected me with a designer. I took the plunge and invested in new cards.

    The difference it made to my business was phenomenal and immediate! Suddenly, I became memorable, and I started to get calls from people who said, “Jenny showed me your card, I’d like to work with you.”

    My business cards generated 3-4 times the cost of design and printing them in just a few months of use. I’ve lost track of what they’ve done for me over the past 3 years. Never underestimate the power of your business card to generate new leads for your business. If your cards are not generating a response maybe it’s time to look at designing ones that will.
