Political protests have been a part of American Culture for centuries, and don’t appear to be going away anytime soon. In the wake of President Donald Trump’s Presidential inauguration, organized political protests have taken place across the country, with many other demonstrations in the works for the coming months. For many demonstrators, this is their first time ever protesting in favor of their political beliefs and values. Even within the crowds, everyone wants to have their own voice – as we’ve seen with pictures of protest signs from events from coast to coast.
Protest signs that range from serious to comedic have generated news stories of their own. Many of these signs are homemade, unique and creative. And the awareness that they’ve generated shows how effective they can be. The best protest signs are…
- Easy to read
- Short and to the point
- Have a single message
- Use both text and images
Sometimes homemade signs aren’t that easy to read, and don’t contain images with their message in text. It can be difficult to create consistent sized lettering, even spacing and even shading without the proper tools. Further, those who aren’t artists have a tough time incorporating images into the design. Because of this, many protesters are turning to professional printed signs instead.
Unify With a Single Message
Beyond legible lettering and full color design options, bulk poster printing for political rallies is becoming more popular among demonstrators and event organizers because of the ability to unify crowds with a single message. Yes, many people will bring their own signs, but being able to hand out your poster message to everyone who came empty handed can help spread the word and include everyone in attendance.
Imagine what pictures of the event would look like if everyone had on of your poster in their hand – and many of them were with the slogan that you came up with! We’re seeing more demonstrators printing their signs professionally in bulk – but that isn’t all they’re doing.
Go Bigger, Go Smaller – Or Both!
Printing posters isn’t the only way to get your message out at political rallies. Some people decide to go smaller, and print custom round or oval stickers to hand out to attendees. Others go bigger by printing vinyl banners that they hang in a high visibility locations near the event. A combination of posters, stickers and banners together are being used by event organizers throughout the country – and now you can too!
