    Good Poster Design Tips

  • "6 words - 6 seconds" - the time it takes to drive by and take in Your message. Remember it is not a magazine advertisement or Flier. Keep it Simple

  • Less words = Bigger copy = More impact

  • When designing Your poster on a PC or Mac 45cm from you - Make your Logo Big and Bold - visible from 10m to 30m. Step away from the screen - is the Copy still visible? Think Car Number Plate minimum copy size.

  • Keep It Simple and use strong contrasting colours


  • No more than one point of Contact is required e.g. Web Site URL, Tel Number - if Your name is easy to remember - people will Google you!

  • Colour background - add a picture - attract interest. 

  • Have a Call to Action - Attention Grabbing Offer - Special Price - Compelling Benefits to the customer - Humour - Clever use of words. Make it memorable.

  • Change the design often - Refresh.

  • Location is Important - but more Important is Great Design - consider employing a *Professional Designer to make your investment effective - *I can recommend

 "I have found that road side advertising has certainly increased the number of visitors attending our events. It is certainly far more cost effective than both newspapers and radio. The flexible service that Out and About offer is excellent."
