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.
Poster - Example
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.
Canadian Format / CAN
CAN 2-9.60, tabloid, 280 x 430 mm: Download
USA Format / Ansi
ANSI X3.151, tabloid, 279 x 432 mm (11 x 17 inches) Download
World Format / DIN
ISO216, DIN A2, 297 x 420 mm Download
If you have any influence on this, please don´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.  See chapter "Hints for North American paper users".
