How To Make Stunning Posters That Catch Everyone’s Attention!

January 15th, 2013 | Posted by Qasim in Poster Ideas - (Comments Off)

Posters are really useful, provided they’re designed with care. They can be gifted to someone you love, utilized to invite people to your party, or to attract potential buyers for a car you’re selling. The list goes on. When designing your next custom poster, keep in mind the following important things and you’ll be good to go.

Every poster has its own unique purpose, and its layout is defined by the people you’re targeting. In other words, make a custom poster that you’re really sure will attract your desired audience. If you’re from a club inviting people to a party, you’ll most probably make a poster with thundering fonts that stand out, like, Caeldera, Seven Monkey Fury and Titania. Clipart and images may be used, going with the theme of the party. Check out these poster templates and backgrounds created by PosterMyWall.

If it’s a real estate poster, keep it as simple as possible, with the text font preferably Accidental Presidency or Liberation. Just use images showing clearly whatever you’re planning to sell, and with a plain background, as opposed to an image background. Make sure the message it conveys is vivid and clear for the audience to view. When you’re making a custom poster, download it (which is a free option on PosterMyWall) and print on a Letter sized page and hold it at arms length and squint. That way you’ll be sure that the title and important text is easy to read.

Check out some of these templates created by PosterMyWall users to get your creative juices flowing.

Before getting started, check out these beautiful collections of posters to get an even better idea as to how your desired poster should be. The following posters are made by professionals, so don’t fret! Amateurs can come up with amazing results, and PosterMyWall guarantees that.

Thanksgiving Tips – Not Just About Turkeys!

November 22nd, 2012 | Posted by Amabel in Poster Ideas - ()

This is a great opportunity to capture great shots while family and friends are gathering.

Easy Tips for Holiday Photos!

Try these tips featured in Bay Area Parent SF Peninsula Edition from professional photographers Kimberly Hernando of San Francisco-based SuperKimagery (www.superkimagery.com), Rebecca Little of Portraits by Rebecca in Morgan Hill (www.portraitsbyrebecca.com) and Jason Lee of San Ramon (kristinandkayla.blogspot.com).

Location, Location, Location

Whether to take your photos indoors or out is up to personal preference.

“Certain times of the year provide great colorful backgrounds (outdoors), but at the same time, a nice cozy home can be a great photo opportunity,” says Lee.

But Hernando advises that amateur photographers without sophisticated lighting set-ups often do better outdoors. “The best time for outdoor photos is the hour after the sun rises and an hour before the sun sets. Shooting at noon, when the sun is directly overhead, isn’t ideal because people tend to squint and shadows show up under the eyes (‘raccoon eyes’).”

What to Wear

Busy patterns may distract from your beautiful smiles. But at the same time, says Hernando, “there’s more to your family than khakis and a white dress shirt. Coordinate, but not matchy-matchy.”

Adds Lee: “If you (are going to) look at your photo 20 years from now and think, ‘Why on earth was I wearing THAT?’ then it’s probably something you shouldn’t wear. I always say classic and timeless works best.”

Their best advice? Have fun!

Once you’ve taken all those great photos use PosterMyWall’s Collage Maker to showcase your favorites in a beautiful photo collage to use in a holiday card or set on a canvas mount or in a custom frame.
