20 Custom Poster Printing Design Samples for Inspiration
Custom poster printing isn't just a great way to promote events, products and services — they're also a great art medium. The best commercial posters are often sought-after works of art in their own right. A lot of famous poster designs were not the work of marketing or design groups, but of individuals. This is truer today than it ever was before.
Poster printing has come a long way from the time of Alphonse Mucha, the groundbreaking artist who virtually invented posters as a marketing tool in 19th Century France. There are no formulas for success in poster design. If it works, it works. It can be hard figuring this out though. Which is why we've provided a few poster samples for inspiration. Enjoy!
