In-Store Promo Posters

Posters have been displayed in public places over the world for hundreds of years for promotion & advertising or as a posted bill. Purely text posters have a long history, they have advertised the plays of Shakespeare and made citizens aware of government proclamations for centuries. In the modern times due to the development in techniques such as lithography and later chromo-lithography posters have become visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service which is literally taking the advertising to the street.

Today we are going to concentrate on posters used to promote vinyl records releases. As part of their advertising campaign, record labels would print posters to promote an artists' newest release, where they would ship these promo posters to record stores and retail outlets for display. These posters are used as "Point Of Purchase" advertising which brings the attention of a targeted shopper to the availability of a new release. These retail posters like most ephemera were made for display and limited for one time use meaning after the release was dated the posters were discarded which is why these posters that were already in limited supply are even more scarce today.
