Printing Posters in Full Color_01

One effective way to gain interest is through full color posters. Full color poster printing is inexpensive and can produce large quantities of posters in one go. They can be customized depending on your preference – things like quantity, size and stock material used can be changed to suit your needs.

Before any design, layout, or catchy phrase, it is the color that catches people’s attention first. So be bold in your designs. Make good color combinations. Have your designs checked and make sure you’re able to send your message across in a clear and concise manner. Here are some quick tips to help you with colors:


• Choose a light background.


What you want is to emphasize the important details. Don’t let a bright-colored background compete distract your audience. Lighter ones make the texts more evident, making them easier to read.


• Limit the colors to two or three.


Why bother for many when a few will do? What you want is a poster that would convey the right message to your target audience. To do this, limit the number of colors that you’ll use. Two to three colors is okay. Don’t overuse them. In fact, monochromatic posters present a more balanced effect.


• Check the color wheel.


An attractive poster has always something to do with good color combinations. A color wheel will guide you to create one. For instance, colors which are located opposite each other in the color wheel would complement one another. This means they'll make good color contrasts. Or, you could opt to use adjacent colors to maintain a consistent scheme. This will make your design look uniformed.


Full color posters are used mostly for marketing campaigns and for a good reason – they’re really just that effective. Set them up in areas where there’s heavy foot traffic and your poster would be noticed for sure!
