Banners, posters and displayed communications are another classical means of nonviolent campaigning. Here is what you need to know to prepare effective banners:

- Decide in advance what your sign will say. The shorter the better. A phrase of three or four words that people can read quickly is best.
- Chose one of the two posterboards to be the front. You can write signs on both sides, too.
- Make a general outline of what you’re going to write. Write large enough and using a good writing so everybody can read what you are protesting against.
- Decide what decorations to add. For a more eye-catching protest sign, you can add optional decorations – glitter could be used or just normal bright outlines.
- Outline the words in dark marker.
- Fill in the letters. Use dark colors so people can read your text from a longer distance.
