Funfair Poster Campaigns

We are the proud and sole supplier of poster Distribution to London’s premier funfair provider Irvin Leisure . Spreading the word to keep London’s families entertained. 

Our founders relationship with George Irvin’s Funfair goes back a long way.

Back in 1990’s, two fairground families excelled at the poster distribution for their respective events. Irvin’s, who have been in the industry since the 19th century. And new upstart John Carter with his now famous Carters Steam fair. John Carter was an excellent show promoter and experienced billposter. 

Everywhere, either families events went the towns would be filled with posters. Sometimes, their poster campaigns would overlap. Often, this would cause tension between the respective families! This is because of, the nature of the amusement business. And, the close proximity of these respective events mainly in London. However, over the years this grew into a mutual respect. 

The 21st Century

John Carter died in 2000. His step son and our boss Zed Lawrence was already by then totally in charge of all the advance publicity for Carters Steam Fair. He, continued to hone his skills with increasing inventive poster advertising techniques. Because of this, In 2009 Zed decided he wanted to concentrate solely on poster distribution. 

So, in 2010 started Monkey-fly Advance Publicity, later to be renamed A-Z Poster distribution. In the early years A-Z Poster Distribution grew by putting up posters for the majority of the funfairs around the South of England. Including George Irvin’s. Until, in 2018 we signed a exclusive deal to only advertise their funfairs. While expanding the business in to poster campaigns for different events like circuses, festivals and other events.

Poster Distribution..The most effective way of advertising an event

Poster distribution is by far the most cost effective way of advertising events. Research shows over 65% of the attendance comes directly from the poster campaign. With the remainder coming from more expensive forms of advertising. Because of this, our regular clients wouldn’t consider promoting an event without a poster campaign. Our experienced team at A-Z Poster Distribution work directly with clients to understand the target demographic for each event. By doing this, we provide a bespoke poster campaign for every event we advertise.

Poster Design

Well designed posters make a world of difference to the success of your event. The design of the events poster is often intentionally cryptic. Sometimes, Poster campaigns use poster designs are simple. large letters may be chosen to give maximum impact. More often than not, it is about getting a good balance of style and impact. Keeping, the main points highly visible the most important part of poster design.

The title, advertising slogan for the poster campaign are importantAlsothe date and the event’s venue. These, are important bits of information that should be instantly visible on your poster. Keeping the information on the events poster to a bare minimum helps to reduce clutter. If using more than a few words on your poster it’s best to use both capital and lower case lettering. Capitals on the poster are best used for emphasis or to attract attention. Lettering should be correctly spaced so it is easy to read. Posters are often seen from distance so the right colours are important to draw you in

Other considerations 

Think about, what your poster will look like behind glass. Because, posters will often be placed in shop windows. Also, primary colours can be seen easily. However, light colours are usually not very good in poster design. Because, the text is harder to see unless a dark contrasting background is used. Therefore, the text on the posters should always have enough contrast to make it stand out.

When designing the poster for your poster campaign. You should, also consider everything else that will be in shop windows. Simply put, your poster design needs to stand out from the crowd.

If possible, try to include QR codes on the poster with links to a facebook page or website for the event. Please read our article about this here.

Targeted Poster Advertising

The team in charge of your event’s poster distribution will target all important areas. Firstly, we target the big main shopping areas. Secondly, all the little back streets. It should be noted, that these back streets are where your potential customers are most likely to stop and read your event’s posters. Because of this, our poster distributors systematically find all the shops down hidden back streets to display your poster advertising.

How Come We Know About Poster Distribution?


Poster distribution has been in our founders blood since he was a kid. He grew up on Carters Steam Fair running, promoting and advertising events all his life. At 8 years old one of his first event publicity jobs was handing out leaflets dressed as a clown. Later, he became more and more involved in advertising the fair. Consequently, he took over all the poster distribution in the early 90’s. Soon, Carters Steam Fair became a huge success. Much of this success was due to Carters Steam Fair’s unique and highly effective advertising techniques . He did this until 2009 when he left the fair and founded A-Z Poster Distribution.
