Q. How long will my posters stay up? 
A. As soon as a campaign begins and we receive art, we go to print immediately and make sure some posters are up around the location of your event..  We base our distribution campaigns on a minimum of 50 posters per week, per city (indoor and outdoor), we can however distribute up to 500 posters in a one week period for a heavily saturated short notice campaign.  Please get in touch to discuss your campaign roll out once you submit your order!

Q. What is the quickest and easiest way for me to get a quote?
Sometimes it can be very time consuming typing up an email with 10 different delivery addresses and multiple quote scenarios... One way we operate with a lot of our touring company clients is by asking them to simply send through the tour poster!  We have most Australian venue address and contact information on hand - so knowing where to deliver posters during the venue's opening hours is easy for us! we'll make sure our quote includes - posters in the venue, posters in the street and some posters in your hands! 

Q. What dimensions / specifications do I need to provide for my art?
Please see our art specification page.  You can also download templates for your print material.

Q. Can you please send me a list of all the places you distribute?
A. Please see our location coverage list here: FULL DISTRIBUTION LOCATIONS - Please feel free to suggest locations that may not be on our listed network, we'll do our best to accomodate. 

Q. I've never done this before! can you let me know how many posters would be sufficient for my event?
A. Of course, send us an email for give us a call on 1300 734 990.  It would be good to let us know 1. Your budget, 2. The capacity of the event and 3. The date of the event... we'd be happy to tailor a few options for you within (or below) your budget for your consideration. 

Q. Can you convert my colour poster art to greyscale for AO Street Posters? 
A. We’re always happy to convert your art from a colour file to a Greyscale file, but as you can see below, this process is not always ideal. Often greyscale posters will be large scale (AO) and benefit from the artwork being tailored to stand out on the street with higher contrast text / illustration - see below.
