Hello All, Sorry if this has been covered before but I was wondering if you think show posters are still relevent? I have been playing professionally for 20 years now and there was definitely a time when it was an absolute must that you advertise your show with posters. With today's advances in technology and social networking websites, do you still feel the need to put up posters for your shows? I see that they can have their place but I am wondering if they are still a necessity. I still poster for shows but have scaled back the number that I print. I live in a town that, at last count, has somewhere between 400 - 500 active bands. I get frustrated at having my posters covered by other bands or going to a show out of town and not seeing any of the posters I have mailed to the club/promoter hung anywhere. I am starting to think it is a huge waste of paper. I am just curious how you deal with posters for your shows. Funny thing is that I truly enjoy them as art but I wonder about their effectiveness.
