How do I use the search option for photographs to create a motivational poster?

Enter keyword(s) in the search box click "go".

Be creative in your search criteria – there are over 10,000,000 pictures for you to choose from and they have been categorised under many different selection criteria that if you don’t find what you’re looking for the first time try a different selection term e.g. “Trees” could be found under other search terms such as:, wood, nature, forest, fauna, jungle, trunk, logs....... “Handshake” may be found under business people, consultant, greeting, hands, service, shake, welcome, hello...... Once you’ve found a picture that you like click on it and it will be ready for you to move onto STEP TWO of the process.

Can I have my logo printed on my motivational poster too?

Yes – but this will require us to get a suitable image of your logo and agreement on where the logo is to be printed – to do this call our design department on 00 44 1283 730681. The inclusion of a logo will incur an additional set-up cost of £35 per print – large orders or repeat orders can be subject to a discount – please discuss this when contacting us.
