  • What other templates can I use for my theater posters?

    To really get the word out, you should take advantage of our many social media templates for Facebook Covers, Instagram Stories, etc. You can also design logos for your theater troupe, flyers, cards, and more to show off what you’ve put so much work into.
  • How do I design a theater poster from scratch?

    You can always select “Blank Poster” from the Templates page to navigate straight to the design generator. But keep in mind that every element of a ready-made template can be edited, so it’s helpful to start with a template even if you plan to make changes.
  • Can I print my theater posters?

    Yes, all posters can be shared digitally or downloaded for printing. If you want to print, keep in mind your desired dimensions as you design. And you might want to have the posters printed professionally if you don’t have a poster printer at home.
