Why are Posters Still Important?

For one thing, posters are still relevant nowadays because they are proven an effective means for advertising and marketing, even with all the digital and paperless methods available.

But to give you a clearer picture on why they are still important, here is a list of what posters can achieve:

  • Since posters are large scale advertising tools, you would also need to use a large font size and images since the purpose of posters is to be noticed by a large number of people as well as to be visible even at a distance.
  • Posters can reach a wide number of audience as long as it is placed strategically in the correct location.
  • There are other tools that can be used for advertisements such as billboards, television commercials, and newspaper ads, but these are too costly. Posters, on the other hand, are inexpensive and are also easy to make, especially with the availability of templates.

Tips: Things to Consider when Designing Posters

  • When creating a poster design, the background matters a lot. If you leave it blank, even if you use a bright solid color, it gives emphasis to the foreground image, which is what you want your audience to focus on. The simpler or brighter the background image, the more you want your foreground to be emphasized.
  • The type of typography used should be appropriate to the main theme of the poster design. If the poster is for a formal event, then you should refrain from using a fancy typography. The images used should always go hand in hand with the typography to make the poster more organized and effective.
  • It is also best to keep the design simple to avoid over-cluttering it. A disorganized poster is difficult to read, and audiences may lose interest in reading it. Thus, the simpler and more organized a poster design, the easier it is to read. This way, the more likely that your poster may be able to reach more people.

How to Use our Poster Designs

When designing your own poster, you may do it directly without planning, but the risk of having to make alterations later on in the process is inevitable, and this could cost you a lot of time. It is strongly advised that you plan the design of your poster well before actually executing it to make the process flow faster and smoother.

Follow the simple steps below to guide you in designing your poster in the least hassle way possible.

  • Using a piece of paper and pencil, sketch out your design idea for your poster. Include in this rough sketch some notes about specifications such as the colors to be applied and some details to be incorporated. You may refer to poster mockups to provide you with ideas for the design. While this process may seem time consuming for inexperienced artists, it will make the design process easier and actually faster when compared to designing without a sketch as a guide.
  • Once you have figured out what you want for your poster, go through our gallery of designs and download the one that suits your sketch the best. How do you download? Simply click on the red, rectangular button below the image. These poster designs may require you to pay a fee before you can download them, but don’t worry, they are at a very reasonable amount.
  • After downloading your chosen poster design, open the file in a photo editor and start editing it. Though these files may still work with other photo editors, we do recommend that you have Adobe editing software installed on your system for the highest compatibility.
  • Finalize your poster design and have it printed. If you have a printer capable of printing large scale materials in high quality, then you may do the printing yourself. If you don’t, however, then you may save your finalized design on a portable media (flash disks, compact disks) and take it to a printing company and let them print your posters for a fee.
