Printing POSTERS for your classroom... inexpensively


Many teachers and students have discovered infographics and find them to be a wealth of information displayed in a visual-pleasing way. Most of these infographics are large images that would be cost-prohibitive to print and display in your classroom.

An inexpensive and easy option is to 'cut up' the image, print individual pages, and glue or tape them together. After laminating the assembled image, the final product is a 'seamless' poster without the hefty pricetag.

PosteRazor is a free website that splits up any image into a printable .pdf in no time. 

The infographic at the left, about CYCLING INJURIES, is a large image that I brought into PosteRazor,
which created a 20-page .pdf, that may now be printed on 8.5 by 11 paper.

I have provided another example with a FACTORING infographic, at the right, that PosteRazor converted into
a 6-page .pdf that, when assembled, is more than a metre tall!

If you love information communicated in a visually appealing and simplifying manner then Infographics are for you. Infographics illustrate how information can be spread and understood in a graphic manner,
usually much easier than pure text.
