Poster Printing & Design Tips

You want your poster to be visually striking and easy to read. Below are some tips to help you maximize the impact of your custom printed posters.

  • To ensure your message is legible from a distance, add 1” of text height for every 10’ of viewable distance
  • So if your "Grand Opening" sign needs to be read by passersby on a road 60’ away, select letters that are at least 6” tall
  • Consider shortening your message and increasing text size if drivers are traveling at a high rate of speed
  • When selecting colors for your poster text and background, you can increase readability by choosing a high-contrast combination; like black text on color, or color text on white

Ask us how we can incorporate cross-media strategies into your custom posters and other printed materials to make your marketing investment stretch even further.
