Default #shootback posters in W. Hollywood

https://www.queerty.com/distributing...ywood-20160616

Someone here?

This was a year ago...but this is the kind of stuff that I believe can, over time, have a impact. If anyone is interested in continuing on with something like this...I'm willing to print up some posters free of charge.

I'd love to see some new designs. I think something softer and / or pretty and / or not "scary"

More like this or



or Shepard Fairy style.


Designs that doesn't offend "delicate" sensibilities.....nice enough to not offend yet making the point.
Subtle can go a long way towards gradually softening the stance against guns.
Imagine 100 posters in W. Hollywood put up and changing every month for a year. I think a campaign like that could actually have an effect.

Anyone game?

Thats a pretty cool poster. When your sitting in your car in traffic just thinking, and see posters or billboards like that, it gets into your brain and makes you think.
Same thing the media does with people, keep repeating it and you start to believe.
Great idea on those posters in my opinion.

I'd love to see a bill board smack in WEHO "Shootback" Learn Armed Self Defense Free with Gays with Guns.. and then have in place a team of trainers ready to handle the deluge of people wanting the service. But we're talking BIG bucks. Posters that WERE put upwere defaced pretty quickly that's why a billboard would be optimal --a little harder for vandals to get too. What I'd like to do to paper windshields with the same flyer --but again the only way I see getting curious Gays to sign up and take an interest is free classes and free range time.

I'm in, what are the deets? I love the look of that poster.

Remember, liberals react to Care and Fair, base the ads on caring for at risk people and owning guns as a solution to some unfair injustice.

I like the idea of a kkk group facing down a single black person, but they have an AR and the text "Not this time" or "Why do you need that?"

Last I heard a decently placed billboard in WEHO starts at around $2500. a month. Those are some deets that're out of my range.

A billboard is stupid money. Printing a bunch of posters like the one above, which I really like BTW, is fairly cheap. Having them spread around by volunteers would get it out there. If someone can post a clean copy of that poster that's easy to send to my printer I'd appreciate it.

Exactly! This is important......you want it to be hard to argue with. It has to draw on emotion.

As I stated in the first post.....I'll donate posters. But unless someone can find a hi res version of that file....someone needs to make a new one. If someone promises to post them up...I'll send 10-20 posters out free..to anyone who'll do it.....just pay for the shipping which is probably less than $10.00 or stop by my shop in Santa Ana.

But we need a quality file of a good poster to make it happen. I just put that up there as an example.

Com'on, nobody here has any design skills?
