Poster for cycling mass action

Introduction

The poster below can be used for cycling mass actions by attaching it to a bike trailer, makes most sense if you are the last in the cycling action, so following cars can read it.

Tutorial

Basic idea: Design an A4 format poster, split it over several A4 sheets, print it, cut and glue it together on cardboard

Note: If you download the PDF template below, you can skip steps 2 to 4.

  1. Get a cardboard from your favorite garbage room, local supermarket, hardware store (moving box size will do)
  2. Create a poster in a presentation app (e.g. MS Powerpoint, LibreImpress, …, MS Word will also do)
    Note: If you share your design on the web, include your web address in small print on the poster so people, who see your poster, can copy the design.
  3. Export the poster as an image, eg PNG format
  4. Use a program to split the image on multiple pages, e.g. PosterRazor, and export it to a PDF file
  5. Print on local A4 (colour) printer
  6. Cut the separate sheets and glue them on the cardboard
  7. Wrap transparent sticky tape with a tape dispenser (like the removal guys use) to protect your precious poster against rain
