Teacher Appreciation Week posters are a great way to draw attention to your message of gratitude and an effective tool to get everyone in your school pumped up about your event. While your teachers are being honored at a special breakfast or luncheon celebration, get students involved by having them decorate classroom doors with teacher appreciation posters of their own creation.

Although lithography was invented in 1798, it was at first too slow and expensive for poster production. Most posters were woodblocks or metal engravings with little color or design. But a breakthrough in printing allowed artists to achieve every color in the rainbow for a remarkable intensity of color and texture. Starting in the 1870s in Paris, posters became the main means of mass communication in Europe and America, ushering in the modern age of advertising.

The ability to combine words and images in an attractive, economical format made printed posters a powerful innovation. Shop our Teacher Appreciation Week posters and utilize the power of words and colorful designs to help honor your teachers every day of the school year.
