Today we’ve got another great poster idea for all the parents out there with sports enthusiasts in the family. Use background templates provided by our designers to make a Sports Poster with the Poster Maker. Summer vacations are here and it’s the perfect time to put together all the school sports team memories that your child has collected. You can also make a sports poster for any summer sports program that your child is enrolled in. So get creative and get started today!
Take a Look at the Sports Templates
We recently added over 50 new and exciting backgrounds (view library of backgrounds) to give you a starting point for your poster. In these, you’ll find bright and colorful templates for soccer, football, basketball and more general sports backgrounds. Before selecting your background you’ll obviously want to decide if you want to make a poster for one team or a poster including photos of your star in different sporting events. There’s a very cool background of a stadium with fans which is suitable for any type of poster you decide to make.
Before proceeding any further, checkout the different articles we’ve done in the past on making great sports team posters. Each article contains a list of backgrounds (with thumbnail previews) relevant to the sport.
Any parent who has taken photos at a sports event knows how difficult it can be to capture the perfect moment. That leaves you with lots of sports photos that may not be suitable for your poster. Here’re a few tips to select photos that will make your poster look like it was designed by a professional:
Either select photos where the person is in the center or crop the photos to exclude any unwanted background.
Exclude any photos that are blurry or fuzzy. They’ll ruin the overall look of the poster.
Use tools available in the Poster Maker to enhance your photos. Make sure to take a look at the Erase Background, Edge Effect and Posterize Effect. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Flyers are a great way to promote the opening of a new business, or upcoming promotions and events. We’ve previously given ideas for printing flyers from PosterMyWall in our feature focus ‘Make and Print Flyers for Free’. Today we’ll give some ideas on how to use PosterMyWall as a tool to design and print free Business Flyers.
When to Use a Flyer for Your Business
You can have too much of a good thing and the same applies to an attractive flyer for a small business. It’s important to know the right time to design and distribute a business flyer. A few key events that you may want to promote using flyers are:
The opening of a new businesses
The opening of a new outlet for an existing store
Introducing a new product or service to your customers
Upcoming sales or special events
Remember that a flyer is best used when it can be distributed for promotional purposes. Avenues for distribution include positioning it near the cash counter, placing it on a community bulletin board or even asking supportive members of your supply chain to display it for you. Use your best judgment on where your customers are most likely to see, notice and remember your flyer.
Making an Effective Flyer for your Business
You don’t have to go to an expensive print company to make a professional looking flyer for your business. There’re a few very simple points that will help you design a highly attractive and specialized flyer for your next event.
Make sure that the name of your business or store is at the very top of the flyer. The name must be written in a clear, large sized font.
The purpose of the flyer should be the second most obvious text in your design. The font should be approximately half the size of the name of your business.
Key messages should “hop out”. Think of your flyer like a billboard that viewers will pass at highway speeds. Don’t lose your message on a busy background. A good test is to hold the flyer at arm’s length and squint. Are your key messages the main thing you see? If not, you need to make the messages standout more.
Contact information should definitely be mentioned in a discrete but visible corner of the flyer. Font size should range from 12 to 16. This should be clearly visible but not distract people from the first two points.
Finally, a professional yet eye-catching background should be used to grab people’s attention. We have a whole collection of backgrounds which are free for use. Check out some of the one’s listed below, or view the whole collection of flyer backgrounds. Click on a background thumbnail to get started with your flyer.

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.
Click a background below to make a poster on it in the poster builder.
(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.
Printing Options for your Anniversary Gift
PosterMyWall offers multiple printing options. There’re a number of different sizes available that fall under all different kinds of budgets as well.

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.
