This is what the president of Swann Galleries in New York USA, Nicholas Lowry, said about posters. “The great thing about posters is that they are accidental art. They were not meant to be saved. It’s meant to be advertising, to be rained on, torn down or plastered over. That’s the beauty of it”
Posters are one of the most collectible of collectibles and none more so than the vintage advertising poster.
Vintage advertising posters can be found on walls where once there was fine art. Some of these vintage posters can fetch as much as fine art at auctions and sales and are very sort after.
These posters were the first advertising done to the masses and the graphics and artwork were meant to grab the attention of passersby. They were used to advertise a product or an event and meant only to last a few weeks.
There have been records set in recent times for rare advertising posters from the Art Nouveau (1890-1914) and the Art Deco (1925-1940) periods, they have increased dramatically in value over the last 10 years or so.
Vintage advertising posters can often be confused with photographic reproductions. The reproduction posters were created without any input from the artist. This type of poster is not a vintage advertising poster but if you cannot afford the real thing then you may be able to have your favorite on your wall for around $20 to $50. Many people collect these reproductions of these vintage advertising posters and who knows, one day may be worth so much more too. Who would have thought the posters made back in the late 1800s would be worth so much today.
$250,000 is the highest price ever paid for a vintage advertising poster. that was for the first one designed be the famous French artist, Toulouse-Lautrec back in 1891. This price was paid in New York in 1999 at Poster Auction International.
A vintage advertising poster must feature original artwork, With modern technology today, there are many copies and forgeries. Most forgeries of vintage advertising posters are photographic reproductions not lithographic prints and with careful scrutiny can be detected.
To help detect a forged vintage advertising poster, Louis Bixenman, director of the International Poster Fair said “look at the borders. If you see at the edge, what looks like a tear but you can’t feel it, be suspicious. take an ordinary magnifying glass, if it has a dot pattern, it’s a photo offset”
That’s is a very good tip as the unknowing area always the ones to be taken in. If you have some idea what to look for, then you are more that half way there.
Collecting vintage advertising posters may be out of price range for many but there are still some bargains to be had, you just have to keep looking.

How to organize an advertising campaign using outdoor advertising? Is it possible to calculate the effectiveness of outdoor advertising? Which is better to use light boxes, as well as how much and how long they need to be applied?
In order to get the answer to these and many other questions, we turn to marketers world-famous advertising agencies whose job every day to create the most creative and effective advertising.
The focus of the outdoor advertising
Head of the worldwide popular advertising company RI-Vita DDB, says that outdoor advertising has a specific character, as its objective is to draw attention of consumers in a matter of seconds. On this basis, it should not be verbose and bright. It should be noted that in Russia, advertisers often overdo it, placing on light boxes are too complex for the perception of the image or randomly located and long slogan. For example, on light boxes found around the slogan, caterpillar, vertically, diagonally, etc. Rinta-Valkama, which has twenty-five years of experience in advertising work, I am convinced that the slogan should be easy to read.
In addition, studies of marketers spend passersby to read the advertising signs only 35 seconds, and drivers – 12 seconds. Not all light boxes placed on the streets are consistent with the conditions of perception.
According to the manager of the agency for the preparation of urban projects – Elite Zunino: outdoor advertising like the bright and unexpected design more than any other media.
Simply put, a good outdoor advertising should be colorful, showy, alternating with, concise (preferably less words). Billboards have to stand in its place. Because no one will solve the riddle that is placed on a large construction, these designs are meant for cars. A puzzle should be placed, for example, to transport stops.
The task of the outdoor advertising
Of advertising is recognized the most effective option for brand promotion. The contents of the advertising structure shall be fully associated with the brand. For example: a company Dougan, who registered the brand has recently released the advertising banners on which was depicted only the logo. It is believed that the higher income customers, the most effective outdoor advertising works.
Very pochastu illuminated signs found on the streets of the city in recent times and it is very loved by marketers. Because that’s what this kind of outdoor advertising is mainly aimed at an audience with above-average incomes. Especially good lighting channel letters and light boxes in the winter, when the quality is very elegant product stands out against the background of darkness and empty cityscape. In addition, the large volume letters can be placed on the so-called, city-format in a short time.
Has recession severely affected your business? Are you facing enormous consumer churn? Then may be it is time for you to makeover the image of your brand and the only way to do this is marketing marketing in a novel and catchy manner. When it comes to uniqueness, catchiness and cost-effectiveness in marketing, aerial advertising or airplane advertising is beyond comparison.
Marketing is a paid form of non-personal communication about an organizations services or product, transmitted to a targeted audience through a broadcast medium. Advertising is the only mode of communication between your company and your consumers to arouse their interest and enhance your products demand. If your marketing campaign is not able to obtain the desired consumer responses then its time to change your approach.
Air advertising involves aerial billboard, blimps, skywriting. You can choose the approach that suits your business. Airplane banners were mostly used for personal messages and by the small businesses in the past but now larger companies i.e. United Airlines and McDonalds also have opted for this approach because of its countless benefits.
Every small business owner has the same dream to make his business grow and one day your small company gets listed among the big companies of the country. Because of the extreme competition in the market and many companies providing similar products and services, this is not an easy job. You must provide the best services at minimum cost but no matter how good your brand is, people can only know it via marketing. If you adopt the same marketing approaches as everyone else does, the chances of your dream coming true is scarce. Try something different, be the first to advertise your brand with an air ad!
How is aerial marketing profitable for larger companies? If you do not know the answer, ask this question from Fox News, McDonalds or United Airlines or read the next few lines. A TV commercial can cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially during the peak time. But an airplane banner can catch the same number of eyes at a much cheaper cost. In addition to this, these ads have a much higher recall value as compared to any other mode of advertising. Maximum result at the minimum price, what else do you want from your advertising campaign?
Advertising is no more a feature of marketing to promote the image of an organization or company. The success of brands, services and even entrepreneurs depend on advertising practices adopted by the particular organizations. In order to generate awareness about the presence of a brand, service or organization, advertising is not only a must but also a mandatory tool for every brand or service owner. In the following paragraphs, let us find out some common modes of advertising widely used by brand owners and organizations.
Television Advertising- Brand promotion through television media is one of the age old tools used by advertisers and brand owners. Television media is an audio visual media that provides exclusive impact on target customers in an interactive manner. Informative, educative and entertaining all at the same time, television media provides rich impact on target customers thereby enhancing the interaction between brands and its target customers. For Indian audiences, television commercials are source of entertainment as well as information about various brands that exist in the market place.
Print Advertising- Print ads are one of the common modes of brand promotion. The history of print advertising traces back decades ago. Some marketers opine that print ads are one of the oldest modes of brand promotion adopted by business owners ever since the concept of advertising took birth. Any form of brand information available through print media such as newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, leaflets, brochures etc come under print advertising. The launch of new age media hasnt provided any harsh impact on print media. Hence, this advertising tool still works as one of the effective modes of brand promotion.
Outdoor Advertising- Any brand promotion campaign launched through outdoor media such as billboards, street furniture, posters, kiosks etc come under outdoor advertising. Despite an old mode of brand promotion, outdoor advertising practices are still adopted by wide range of advertisers and brand owners.
Though advertising is an expensive marketing tool, brand owners adopt various advertising tools to promote their brands amongst customers. The success story of a brand (as per marketing experts) is directly or indirectly related to the advertising activities of the product. However, it is also a much observed fact that not all advertising campaigns become a hit. Television Advertising, Print Advertising, Outdoor Advertising, Internet Advertising etc are some common practices of brand promotion.
I just bought 4 more books from Amazon.com, All about Retail Store Marketing. One looked promising. It was written by someone who actually had a Retail Store. She sold gifts. She had useful information on inventory control, hiring, location and taxes. But what she said about advertising sent chills running down my spine.
She talked about an Advertising Budget. In other words, setting aside a specific amount per month just for advertising. Usually this is in the form of a percentage of gross sales. Eight percent is common. Ive heard up to 15% of sales as your best budget. These figures are given by sincere, educated people as some kind of fact. NO, NO, NO!
This shows a complete misunderstanding of what advertising really is. Advertising is an investment made to generate new customer sales. These people are treating it like advertising is an expense. If you track ad performance, this difference in perspective will pay really big, really fast.
Lets say you mail a flyer, or put an ad on TV or the Radio, and the ad (or series of ads) costs you $1000. Is $1000 your budget? It shouldnt be. If the ads bring in only $500, what will you do next time? Hopefully not spend it again, even though it was your budget.
If you run an ad for $1000 and it generates $5000 in new business ($2500 in profit) do you stop just because you already reached your budget? No. If you can double your money in thirty days you do it as often as you can.
If you test new ads and track your response, you will quickly see that you just keep re-investing in proven ads and dump the losing ads. Thats how you grow. Are you guessing about what works and not analyzing your losers? Thats guaranteed to keep you in the “Ad Budget” group. In other words, not knowing what works.
Ads either generate a profit or they dont. If they do, keep doing the ads as long as they are generating a profit. When they eventually die, bury them. All ads eventually die. The only people that keep saying that you need to repeat an ad to make it pay are ad salespeople.
If your ads work, who cares what the budget is? Dont stop! If your ads dont work, who cares what the budget is? STOP!
This is the real advantage of tracking ad results: Youll know which ads pull their own weight and adjust accordingly.
