Posters are a great way to raise health awareness to large groups of people. Posters can be posted around your community, in schools and even scanned and posted online. If you want to save money while making people aware of your cause, make your health awareness posters yourself.
Step 1: Open the word processing program on your computer. If the program has the option for a poster template, choose it.
Step 2: Choose a font and type the headline of your poster. Make the headline bigger than other parts of the poster and make it say something catchy about health awareness.
Step 3: Add images to your poster to make it stand out and make passersby want to read it. You can find photos on your computer’s clipart program or search for images online. Drag them around the poster to place them where you want them.
Step 4: Add important information about the health problems or diseased you are trying to raise awareness about. This information should be short and to the point. It should draw readers in and make them want to know more but not give them too much information or overwhelm them.
Step 5: Save your finished poster to your computer. This is necessary if you want to use it online or print it on several occasions.
Step 6: Choose your favorite paper and print the health poster. For best results, choose a light-colored paper or cardstock that will allow the print to show easily and will hold up when posted on bulletin boards or telephone posts.
Step 7: Upload your poster to various online websites such as Facebook, MySpace or anywhere else you feel people would see it. If you are a member of a forum or online community, use the poster as your avatar to ensure everyone sees it.
