Make Your Own Posters!

One of the coolest features of Storyboard That is the ability to create your own printable posters. With two poster-sized layouts, the sky's the limit. All of the customizable scenes, dynamic characters, textables, and more can be used to create incredible, eye-catching images that will make your classroom or your student projects stand out. It's so easy to make your own custom posters to fit with the way you want your classroom to look and how your students learn best.

While much of the walls are often spoken for by boards, technology, furniture, and so on, those extra touches you make are not just "decoration". The wall space of a classroom is secret prime real estate for extra teaching and topic reinforcement.

Things you can create:

  • Class Schedules
  • Instructions/Rules/Procedures
  • Inspiration/PSA
  • School Projects

For a complete list of templates and ideas, check out our poster templates page!

Making a Poster on Storyboard That

  1. Select from any of our poster templates, or start at the Storyboard Creator.
    • If starting at the Storyboard Creator, click "Storyboard Layout" and select either the Small Poster or Big Poster layout.
  2. Choose your background or go without.
  3. Find characters, items, and textables that are relevant to your project or desired outcome.
    • Be sure to check every category, there's some really great stuff!
  4. Save and title your poster.
  5. Admire your hard work!
  6. Continue to edit until your poster is amazing (or due).
  7. Print your poster!


  • If you want help placing your assets, turn on the grid! Find Grid Lines under "Advanced Tools."
  • Crop images to get that perfect ratio when you stretch it to fit the width or height of the poster.
  • Don't cover every available space with words or art. Blank space, or negative space, is your friend!

Outside of our plethora of poster templates, here's some fun things to do with your class.

Class Portraits

At the beginning of the year, have your class make its own class portrait! The finished project can be printed out on oversized paper and hung on the wall or on the door. You can either choose the characters for each student or let them take turns at the computer to choose their own character over the course of a day or a week.

For a fun spin on the project, each student could pick from any of the characters available (including monsters, animals, myths, etc.) and the whole class can guess which character each student picked (just make sure to keep track while they're choosing!). Another idea would be to have kids choose a future profession and show themselves with adult characters and items pertaining to that profession.

Class Collage

Instead of a class portrait, the class could make a collage of items, characters, and scenes. The poster will showcase what each student loves or finds important. Again, you can have the rest of the class try to guess which student picked which item for a fun class activity!

Class Collage Ideas

  • Favorite animal
  • Favorite sport
  • Favorite food
  • Favorite activity
  • Favorite book
  • Favorite place
  • Hobbies and skills
  • Strengths
  • Goals
  • Topics you want to learn about

Creating custom posters is a great way to ensure that important information is fun to see and fits into your classroom. If you're looking for more ideas on posters you can create with Storyboard That, we have templates to get you started!
