Spanish Posters – why we offer so many to print for free…

Spanish Posters –  Since 2004 Print-A-Poster has been offering our free printable poster designs professionally translated into Spanish. More than 80% of our motivational, educational, inspirational, workplace and fun posters have been translated. Early in our business we realized that there was a huge desire – and need – for our special mini-motivators to be available to Spanish speaking communities.

We hired professional educators who taught Spanish/English…

We knew we wanted to hire professional educators who taught Spanish/English classes to translate our collection of poster designs. This would be the best real-world solution to providing easy to understand, less formal or archaic interpretations of the quotes that were part of our English designs. We set out looking for skilled educators to complete our project.

Months of looking… more months of translating… and even more months of creating our Spanish designs.

We spent months looking for just the right people to actually translate our collection. That was back in the day before Elance, Odesk, and Fiverr. Skilled people had not yet flocked to the Internet to offer their skills on a freelance basis. We contacted schools, educators and Hispanic community organizations and websites. Finally, we hired two educators to complete our work. Once we decided on who to give this challenge to, it took two months to actually complete the translations. I believe our first batch of translations was around 130. And, then our 6 months of work began to fit the translations into our English designs.

Most people don’t realize all that is involved…

Most people don’t realize all that is involved in creating new poster designs and getting them ready to be online. There is way more to it than just choosing an appropriate background photo and slapping some text over it. There’s font choice, font style, font weight and color – and deciding where the quote should be placed. Sounds simple, but to have a poster easy to read and be aesthetically pleasing takes a creative sense and technical skill. We did all of our graphics work in-house, which took more time than having professionals do the job.

It was a little different for the Spanish Posters…

For the Spanish posters in some ways it was a little bit easier, but in many other ways, it was a real challenge. We knew what the background photos would be – after all we were recreating our English designs. We also knew which font, color and styling we would use – again trying to recreate our original English version. But trying to get the Spanish translations to fit in the same area as the English quotes was often times a design headache.

And then, there was the grind of getting each Spanish design into our catalog/shopping cart system. Again, understand, this was back in the day before there was a hoard of online web developers who would do the work for a low fee. Web designers charged big bucks… and shopping cart specialists were hard to find and even more costly. So, we took responsibility and developed our Spanish poster integration into Print-A-Poster.

More popular than we had anticipated…

So, back in 2004, we started offering our Spanish poster designs available as an option to our English versions. We watched as they became very popular as a printable mini-poster. It was a great feeling to see that the months of work and the costly investment were being so well received. Our Spanish posters were more popular than we had anticipated. One thing we found out almost right away was that teachers and educators were printing out both the English and Spanish versions of our free mini-posters as a teaching tool in their classes. We had never guessed that this might become a useful learning tool. We just realized the large Spanish speaking community was not having access to all that we could offer.

Three more rounds of Spanish translations…

Over the years we have added new designs to our collection of free printable mini-posters. And, with the success of our Spanish poster translations, we were committed to translating our new designs into Spanish as well. So, as we grew, so did our collection of Spanish posters. So, now we offer over 400 of our free printable poster designs available as Spanish posters as well. And, we now offer our designs that feature Spanish translations on the same printable page as the English version. When you view a design on our website and click the yellow tab that says “Free Printable Mini-Poster” a .pdf file will come up. It is a standard letter size (8 1/2″x11″) so it’s easy to print on your home printer. Each design page will include both the English and Spanish version of our design.

So, why do we offer so many Spanish Posters?

It really is kind of a selfish thing. Simply put, we do it because it makes us feel good. We really love sharing our mini-motivators with people all around the world. So, we love it, even more, to be able to offer our mini-motivators translated into Spanish. Now we can share with even more people. And, we feel sincere joy and satisfaction knowing that our designs are being used to help teach English/Spanish. After all, what a great way to learn by reading powerful quotes designed to uplift and motivate.

We hope you enjoy our complete collection of free printable poster designs. Print them, download them, share them with your friends. Or, if you want some of the designs in larger sizes they can be purchased professionally printed from the individual poster pages. You can view the complete gallery of all the designs at the Print-A-Poster shop:

Pioneers of the “Free Printable Poster”

P-R Posters™ Motivational Company - You'll Feel Better!Print-A-Poster.com is a P-R Posters™ company


The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word Pioneer (pi·o·neer) as:
“A person or group that originates or helps open up a new line of thought or activity”

Barron Holtons’ Pioneers Of Flight defines it as:
“… Someone who sees potential, an innovator who is willing to try new things.”

Print-A-Poster.com is a Pioneer of Free Printable Posters.

Way back in the 1990’s they began offering their printable posters for free – to print or download. Anybody could have them. As many as they like.

Many years ago, when the Internet was still in its infancy, a new concept was born. Printable posters available from the World Wide Web. That was way back in the day before most people had computers, tablets, or smartphones. Can you imagine? And, even fewer people had a personal printer.

Websites like Facebook, Instagram, Tumbler, and Pinterest were nowhere to be found. Those were the days before the commercialization of the Internet. Back then it was all about the sharing of information and resources. The “good guys” were those individuals who had a mission to share whatever they could with as many people as possible. It was a long time ago.

… around for almost 20 years

But, Print-A-Poster (a P-R Posters™ company) has been around for almost 20 years – from way back in the early years of the World Wide Web. In that time they created over 600 unique poster designs. Some are motivational to encourage success. Other educational designs help spark the creative learning process. And, their workplace designs focused on building teamwork. There are even some just for fun designs that really tickle the funny bone and bring a smile. Print-A-Poster has always provided their complete collection as free printable posters.

Officially, it was in November 1999 that a small homeschool family business started P-R Posters. Committed to sharing motivational poster designs with anyone who had access to the web. This family was truly a

Pioneer of Free Printable Posters.

Their practice of sharing homemade motivational designs actually started for the Peltier-Robson family in 1994. Back then it was only a few dozen basic designs.

The very first design was made as an answer to the question – “Dad, what is the Most Important Thing?” Here is an image of that first design: Click Here to View our first Free Printable Poster - The 10 Most Important Things

The website started out to be a homeschool lesson in creating a website online, and providing something of value to share. The Peltier-Robson family chose to create unique motivational designs as their “product”. To accomplish that lesson they also needed to learn about customer service, marketing, and all the other aspects of creating the website. They also needed to learn how to create and “package” their artwork as well.

Those were the days when website owners needed to learn to do it all. Website design, link building, copywriting, submitting the website to search engines, email, and shopping carts. It was nonstop fun… and a constant learning curve. But, those good old days really were the good old days for them. Their business was built on a dream… grown on action… and enjoyed by thousands of people all around the world.

Previously, most people considered a poster to be something large that was hung on the wall. A statement, or belief. A beautiful photo or a compelling question. Typically it would be the standard “Attitude” type design with the black background, the large title, the compelling quote, and the beautiful photograph. Those were well known and loved by the masses.

Print-A-Poster struck out on their own creative path.

Print-A-Poster struck out on their own creative path. Their designs were different and refreshing. Because they were different, their designs also became popular. Back then they referred to their printable posters as “mini-posters”. A term they coined after a great deal of thought and discussion. But, printable posters were limited to standard letter size printouts from early inkjet printers – mostly found in schools and businesses. A novel new way to share these mini motivators. An innovation of distribution.

Now, of course, there are hundreds of websites offering their brand of Free Printable Posters. That’s wonderful, and an inevitable result of the success of Print-A-Poster. The world is full of creative people, and it’s nice to see the spirit of sharing is still deeply rooted in so many people providing freebies online. Today there are literally more free designs available than any one person could put on all of their walls. But, that’s a win/win for us all. Variety is ever so yummy!

Print-A-Poster is proud to be a

Pioneer of Free Printable Posters

The journey has been an exciting adventure for the Peltier-Robson family. It has taken them in directions they had never imagined. Because so few people had access to personal printers, Print-A-Poster began offering printed versions of their designs. In the beginning, they offered 4 size posters that they printed on their color inkjet printer and laminated for protection. They even offered a small business card size they called pocket posters.

Since 2005 they offered larger wall sizes of their designs, all the way up to two foot by three foot. So, like the rest of the Internet, they became more commercial and their poster store became a go-to choice for motivational designs. But they never gave up providing all of their poster designs as free printable posters.

Print-A-Poster.com sincerely hopes you enjoy their complete collection of free printable poster designs. Print them, download them, share them with your friends.
