Amplify also offers in house graphic design and can provide artwork design services starting at around £50.
To the best of our knowledge, posters included within the campaign cost is not offered by any other UK supplier.
Whilst there aren’t any poster production costs associated with digital billboards, you may still have to pay for the creation of the artwork if you don’t have the in-house facility.
Remember, production and installation costs vary between suppliers, so double check with each company so you can obtain an accurate cost before booking your campaign.
We have an experienced design team to create your advert that has the right elements to make an effective advert. There is a small charge for this. In same cases we design the adverts free of charge depending on the length of campaign that you’ve booked.
If you book an advertising campaign with us, the installation of your poster is free of charge. Most billboard providers add this charge onto the media space cost without you knowing.
