Formatting work is needed on this page

Promoting LibriVox means more readers, more books and more listeners. The easiest thing to do is link to us on your blog or Web site. You could also add graphics, stick an audio spot in your podcast, or put up real live posters at your local library or cafe.

"Official" Poster

The poster was a fun project in the forum. It has been designed so that you can print it out and post it at your local school, library or cafe, or wherever you can imagine. That's great promotion! Below, you will find ready PDFs of our group-version easily printable. If you like, go ahead and create your own LV poster, it's fun - just like the T-Shirts.

Form-Factors / Papersizes

If you can, please print in tabloid size. Lettersize will be ignored easily! Even in tabloid size - we better multiply the poster and hang at least two next to each other. BUT any poster is WAY better than no poster - so thanks A LOT for pinning us right where people are interested. The poster is layouted in Iso-DIN-format. The north-american/canadian formats were added for compatibility.

Formats

  • Canadian Format / CAN : 2-9.60, tabloid, 280 x 430 mm: Download
  • USA Format / Ansi: X3.151, tabloid, 279 x 432 mm (11 x 17 inches) Download
  • World Format / DIN: ISO216, DIN A2, 297 x 420 mm Download

Paper

If you have any influence on this, please donĀ“t use the standart 80gr./m bright white xerox paper. If you can, prefer some warm toned, or "natural" paper, a little heavier, say 120gr/m. Even eco-paper would be better than the typical bright white xerox paper.

North-Americans and Canadians, persuade your government to finally use the clever DIN-Format. [1] See chapter "Hints for North American paper users".
