    Hi,
    Please share the resources you've used, or just know about when it comes to making your own posters. I've designed some and want to upload them and print them out as full sized posters.
    Thanks!!

    I use Photoshop and print mine out as 16X20s. They are a tad smaller than typical posters, but they fit well in my limited wall space. And I can get them pretty cheap at Costco.

    If you already have a set size, I'm pretty sure that you can get them printed at Kinkos/Staples, etc. Mine are enlarged photos with quotes so I like the photographic print.

    Making your own poster

    Is it possible to make your own refvars with def? Ones that actually work?

    I make my own refvars with def all the time. Most of them don't work though.

    I design posters in MS Word and print them as a regular sized document. Then I go to Staples and have them to blow it up and laminate for me. I can't remember the exact prices because this was almost three years ago, but whatever it was it couldn't have been over $20 - 30 for the set of five that I created

    My school has a poster machine. You can use any regular sized piece of paper and it will enlarge it to poster size. I made a lot of them this past year with song lyrics for my classes. I bet an office supply store might have the same thing.

    I've had to do posters for a workshop. I designed them in PowerPoint and Keynote and they printed them off full sized on glossy paper.

    I use vistaprint. I'm always getting coupons from them in my email so I think I've never paid full price for anything. Occasionally (and much less frequently than it used to be) I get coupons for just free things on there as well.
