What is Wild Posting?

Wild posting (also known as flyposting or bill posting) is a guerrilla marketing strategy that involves putting up advertisements on the street. Because wheatpaste is frequently used to affix the posters, they are also known as wheatpaste posters in the United States. Construction site barriers, building façades, and alleyways are all covered in posters.

In many countries, it is unlawful to put such posters up on private property without the permission of the owner, or to put them up on public land without a sign authorization from the local government. Public bulletin boards, on the other hand, are available in some places where notifications can be placed.

Is wild posting illegal?

Surfaces at danger of unlawful wild posting are often permanently marked Post No Bills (USA), No Flyposting (UK), or in France DĂ©fense d’afficher – loi du 29 juillet 1881, alluding to a legislation, in an effort to deter it. While wild posting is popular, landlords frequently consider it a nuisance and might take civil action to preserve their property rights. This sort of occurrence was particularly notable in Boston, Massachusetts. Advertisers had installed electronic signboards without alerting local authorities in the instance of the 2007 Boston Mooninite Scare, triggering an expensive response by the Boston Police Bomb Squad when the signs were mistaken for explosives.

The same old marketing tactics are used, such as paper classifieds and flyers strewn between the wiper blades. It’s time for something fresh, inventive, and imaginative. Something that you don’t need a significant budget for or to be one of the market’s biggest players to pull off. It’s time to put the streets, public access points, urban surroundings, and the fences around the building site next door to work for you. It’s time for a campaign of “crazy posting.”

In recent years, wild posting, sometimes known as guerrilla marketing or wild posters, has grown in popularity in metropolitan areas. Wild posting is a unique and innovative marketing strategy that is used by everyone from your local pub to major businesses like Sony and Apple. You might recall Apple’s iconic silhouette ad for the iPod back in 2003. Posters featuring black silhouettes of individuals dancing in front of pink, green, yellow, and fuchsia backdrops were strewn throughout the streets. To complement its TV and print advertising campaigns, Apple employed wild posting posters around the United States, which helped push iPod sales into the millions that year.

The opportunity to contact prospective consumers in an unexpected way makes wild posting advertising appealing. Every day when you pass down the street past the same wall, a certain poster is plastered across the full wall, side-by-side with an eye-catching design. Your interest has been piqued. These posters are a fraction of the cost of a magazine advertisement, and the visual extravaganza encourages you to pay attention. To get their message in front of customers, wild posting advertising uses labor rather than billboards. While it is still seen as a controversial and aggressive marketing strategy, it is one that is growing in popularity, and one that you can be sure will draw attention to your next wild posters campaign.

Wheatpaste Posters

Wheatpaste posters are oversized posters printed on a very special thin paper that allows for moisture to absorb quickly in to the paper but still strong enough not to disintegrate the paper. This allows quick application of posters on to city walls using a wheatpaste glue mixture, applied with a brush on to the poster. Wheatpaste posters are a little trickier to print than regular posters because of their larger size and special paper requirements, but with over 20 years experience in printing wild posting campaigns through New York and USA, we’re the experts in wheatpasting and wheatpaste poster printing.

We provide an expert poster installation service, but if you’re looking to save a few dollars and want to do the installation yourself, it’s pretty easy to make wheatpaste glue using some products from the supermarket. To make a wheatpaste mixture for your wheatpaste posters, combine two cups of white or whole wheat flour with two cups of water, stir well, and heat until the mixture boils. When it thickens, add more water and simmer for at least half an hour over low heat, stirring continuously to avoid burning. For a stickier finish in the paste, which sticks to the posters better, some people add a little sugar or cornstarch; don’t be scared to try it. If stored in airtight containers, the wheatpaste should last for a long time, however it will ultimately dry up or rot and solidify inside the containers. If possible, keep them in the fridge to keep it moist as long as possible.

Wallpaper adhesive is also available at any home improvement store, such as Home Depot, in pre-prepared buckets or powder boxes. Wallpaper adhesive is considerably faster and easier to prepare than wheatpaste, and it is not significantly more expensive than buying the raw material to make wheatpaste. Here’s the recipe for wheatpaste if you’re looking to install our posters yourself:

Recipe for Wheatpaste

– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 2 quarts water
– Cooking surface (stove or hotplate)
– A pan or a pot
– A paintbrush (large size)
– A container or pail
– gloves made of latex
