    I just have to share a great tool for making high classroom posters that are completely customized.

    Here are some examples of posters I've made from scratch:

    The program is called LucidPress, and it's free on the internet. The pro version is even free for educators and students. I've printed posters from sizes 11" by 17", and 18" by 24". They all come out extremely crisp. (the key to find good images to add to your posters is to search for computer wallpapers, they have a very high resolution--the text automatically comes out crisp because it's vector based)

    Just been on a poster designing bend lately, and wanted to share.

    Thank for sharing! I'll be checking it out. Where did you get those sizes printed?

    Depends on how much you are willing to spend. There are frequently specials on Poster Print Factory, and their work is fantastic. Best price is usually the 24x36 - that is the one most frequently on special.

    Didn't know about that. Cool.

    I usually do it at Staples or OfficeMax. It can be pricy if you have them laminate it and everything, but it's pretty cheap to just print on glossy or matte paper and laminate it at your school if your school has a laminator.
