Decorate with attractive, interesting and eye-catching poster designs

Posters have been used as a method of communicating visually since the early 1800’s with the invention of lithography, which allowed for cheap mass production. They were used to announce and tell people about shows, music, circus and dances as well as advertising products such as bicycles, cigarettes, tonics and fashion stores. Public posters were a common political tool in World War I and II, used to campaign and broadcast propaganda relying on simple images in order to manipulate people through fear or guilt.

Travel posters broadcast the possibility of travel to people by promoting destinations, and railways used them to announce their schedules and destinations in a creative way. Striking a balance between quality and affordability, posters are perfect for fixing straight onto walls adding the pop of colour a room needs. They also make great art pieces and are perfect for bringing room décor together.
