Gigposters.com is just about the best website one the entire internets. I know, I’ve looked at almost every site out there. (No, really…) Not only is Gigposters.com my home away from home, the reason that I do what I do for a living as a rock poster artist, it’s also the most comprehensive and amazing resource for art, design, bands, artists, wise-acres, designers, and people who just love lively conversation and dig art. Straight up.

And, Gigposters.com needs your help. Desperately. With over 107,000 thousand posters currently (and literally growing every day) for over 98,000 bands this incredible website takes a good amount of time and maintenance to keep running smoothly.

  1. i love the website and get stuck glued to my screen for hours searching it, but i don’t understand it quite. Is it for purchasing the posters or only for viewing? i’ve been going crazy trying to figure it out!

    • yay! it’s such an awesome site, in large part because it is so multi-dimensional. it’s for both searching/looking at posters, uploading them so that Gigposters.com is a repository ofr posters and flyers from all over the world, and for selling (there are classifieds where artists have items for sale), and for finding artists – many bands use Gigposters to find new talent for their posters, CD packaging, and merch work, as well as networking for the designers, bands, artists, and general public as well. the forums are incredible there, from technical advice and help to banter, they are some of the liveliest and smart ones going.

      because it is such a large and multi-facted site, it can take awhile to get used to what information is where, but it’s all there! you can even find the different artists and designers web sites and emails by clicking the small mail envelope or house icons next to their names, which appear on each poster’s page when you click on a thumbnail.

      i hope that helps!
