Make a Birthday Poster with PosterMyWall!

Birthdays come around every year and it can be quite difficult to come up with personalized birthday gifts each time. We offer an easy and fun solution with our Facebook InstaCollage Maker and Poster Builder online tools which let you make one of a kind birthday gifts. A personalized poster is the perfect birthday gift for absolutely anyone! Today we’re sharing a few themes for birthday posters that will definitely make for a very special gift.

Themed Birthday Party and Poster

If there’s a birthday party being thrown for the birthday boy or girl consider having a themed party and a matching poster gift.

Examples that go well are:

  • Jungle Theme: There’re tons of ideas on the Internet for throwing a jungle party including wild decorations, jungle games, and even jungle style food such as coconut punch and tropical salads. You can match the jungle theme party with a personalized jungle poster. Try to place the birthday boy or girl’s photo in the center of a lion or monkey face for a few laughs. Or making a collage and add photos of wild animals along with the birthday honoree!
  • Fantasy Theme: Similar to the jungle theme, fantasy decorations can easily be put up both indoors and outdoors to create a magical ambiance. Think about adding dragons, fairies, elves, monsters and any other creatures that you can come up with. Then get images and photos together to make your personalized birthday gift.
Backgrounds for your Birthday Poster

We’ve got a large (and growing) library of professionally designed poster backgrounds that you can use for your posters. Check out the entire collection here. Check out backgrounds in the Celebration, Kids, and Family Collage categories for goods ones for a birthday poster.

(Photo) Signature Birthday Poster

A signature poster is a unique way to give a birthday gift from multiple people. Ask the birthday boy or girl’s friends to give you a photo of themselves taken specially for their friend’s birthday. (Tip: you can invite them as contributors to the poster, allowing them to add their photos themselves!) Make sure to include other birthday images such as cakes, candles, birthday banners and gifts to make it as colorful as possible. You’ll find a ton of clipart images inside the Poster Builder. Finally add the birthday honoree’s photo in the middle of the poster and you’ll have the perfect custom-made birthday gift!

Magazine/CD/Book Cover Poster

Using magazines, CD’s or book covers is an especially good idea for the younger children out there. Get a picture of their favorite cover and add their own photo into the image. Our background eraser tool will let you do this without having to learn complicated photo editing software. You don’t have to limit yourself to one cover. Having 4 to 6 different covers will be a great way to use the space on your birthday poster gift.

Here’re a few ideas on different themes you can use to get started with your anniversary gift.

Make a Collage of Vacation Pictures for your Anniversary Gift

There’s nothing like photos from memorable vacations to remind yourselves on your anniversary of all the fun times that you’ve shared together. A poster collage is a superb way to use all the photos that you have saved up from your vacations. The tool will automatically layout all your different photos for you so that you don’t have to spend time in arranging and aligning them. Try experimenting with the different border options, adding text and highlight photos on top of the collage. This way, you can put emphasis on specific photos if you’d like them to stand out from the rest of the collage.

Add Photos of Family and Friend Events to your Anniversary Gift

Sometimes, special events celebrated with family and close friends remind a couple of all the extraordinary moments that they have shared together. This is especially true if you live near extended family or are part of a close knit group of friends. Try finding photos of the two of you with the other important people in your lives. Good events to add are holidays, the birth of children, birthdays and even other people’s anniversaries. These photos are sure to create a remarkable gift which your partner will treasure for many years to come.

Include Your Favorite Places in your Poster

Every couple has a number of favorite places that they like to go to together. They can be a restaurant, park, mall, museums or even the opera house! If there’s still time before your anniversary and you’re missing photos of some of your favorite places make sure to go there and take a few shots with your partner.

How to make a Romantic Poster for your guy

We recently gave all the guys tips and advice on creating a romantic poster for their significant other. Today we’re going to give tips to all the ladies out there for creating a poster gift for their special guy. Guys may act macho and tough, but making a poster using PosterMyWall’s online tools is a great way to get in touch with your guy’s softer side!

If you’ve never used PosterMyWall before, take a tour to get familiar with its poster and collage making features. Make sure you’re aware of all the special effects that the tools offer such as adding clipart, using the background eraser, and text effects. All these tools give super cool effects and are easy to use too!

Use Music to Get to His Heart

A great way to make a romantic poster for a guy is to use album cover artwork and lyrics from his favorite songs and artists. You can use a combination of his favorite songs and other romantic songs which are special to the two of you. Mix the artwork that you collect with different photos of the two of you and make an awesome poster. If you have photos from a concert or other musical event they would be great to use as a focal point for this poster.

If you need ideas to get started, google different songs and go through the images that are retrieved. The background eraser and text effect tool will be especially helpful for images that you collect from the Internet.

Sports and Romance? Definitely!

Sports and romance don’t seem like they go well together but if you think about the movie ‘Jerry Maguire’ the entire image can change. Use photos that you may have of the two of you at a baseball game or any other sporting event. If you don’t have any photos from a sporting event you can dress up in a football jersey or any other uniform from his favorite team, take a photo and add other photos of him to the poster.

To give the poster a more romantic touch, add embellishments with cute clipart images from our collection such as wine glasses, cupids or hearts. If you’re with a real sports buff and have tons of photos related to sports, make a collage instead of a regular poster so that you can easily add a large number of photos.

Take a look at the collages below to see what other users of PosterMyWall have created.

Make a Unique Mother’s Day Poster

There are many different ways you can make a poster gift for the mom in your life. Capture the memories by including photos of all members of the family over the years. Start with the baby photos and work your way forward through all the memorable times. If you want to try a more artistic approach, find some quotes or use lyrics from your mom’s favorite song and place those around a photo of her. Any of these options make a great poster and will be absolutely different from the usual gifts.

Create a Theme around Your Mother’s Day Poster

By creating a theme around the poster you make for mother’s day, you can have a more elaborate surprise. Use the poster as a center piece and place flowers, a homemade cake, or even dinner around it. This will look good and will also make your poster the discussion for the day. You can also play a trivia game. Include questions about your mom, your childhood, and other information about mothers and mother’s day.

Different Ways to Print Your Mother’s Day Poster

Whether you’re making a mother’s day poster for your mom, the mother of your children, your mother in law, or any other mom in your life, there are a number of methods that can be used to present your poster.

Downloading a Flyer: If you’re looking for a free printing option, use PosterMyWall’s download button to print a flyer of your design. Keep in mind that with flyers you’ll want to use fewer photos and less text because the printing size will be smaller than a full sized poster. The flyer can be mounted in a picture frame or even used as the cover of a photo album.

Purchasing a Poster: Our printing options let you order posters up to 3 feet tall. These posters make a lovely gift which can be used as decoration pieces for the home or office. There are three sizes available, so go ahead and choose which ever suits your mother’s day poster needs best. Consider mounting the poster on a large frame before presenting it so that it’s ready to hang.
