Easy (and cheap!) poster prints for the classroom

I found a quote on Pinterest earlier today that I thought would be perfect to use in my classroom.  Rather than print it out on 8.5 x 11 paper or send it off to be printed and pay upwards of $10 for this one poster alone, I decided to use a site I found several years back.  You can upload a jpeg file, tell the website how many pieces of paper wide and long you want the poster to be and it will divide the poster up and print it out on that many pages.  For instance, I made my poster 3 pieces of paper wide and 3 pieces of paper long.

The pages print with a small white border around each page.  You simply cut part of the borders off, line the pages up and then tape the backs of the pages together.  Then all you have to do is send it through the laminator.  I've used this for many posters in my classroom and I really like it.  I've even blown up rubrics.  I have the Georgia Grade Eight Writing Assessment rubric hanging in my classroom throughout the year.

So, here are a couple of goodies.

First, this is what my poster looks like:



HERE is a link to the PDF file I created where you can print the poster out on 9 pages, trim it and tape it together.

Finally, you can get to the website BlockPosters.com by going HERE.  The great thing about this site is that you don't have to download anything and it is FREE!

If you go to the site and create anything you feel like sharing, please come back and post a link to the final product here!  I'd love to see what you create!

  4. Posters may be used for many purposes. They are a frequent tool of advertisers (particularly of events, musicians and films), propagandists, protestors and other groups trying to communicate a message.

  6. Banner is the most important and nice way to paste. It may also help you in promoting your brand and its image in customer`s mind. Keep in mind that your banner should be the translator of your product, company and ideas which means it should be clear to understand your business/product image. It develops brand equity so your company banner should be attractive.
