Pin Up Posters Courier Collective

a worker-owned bike-based poster distribution service for cultural and community events

Pin Up Posters Courier Collective has been distributing posters and promotional materials by bike in Pittsburgh since 2008.

Tips & Tricks

  • Bigger isn't always better. Size can be a factor in the number of locations your materials will fit. In fact some locations only allow 8.5"x11" sized posters
  • Posters with dates clearly marked are more likely to stay posted
  • Prices, on the other hand, are better left off as a number of locations won’t accept posters with prices on them (ex. libraries, Starbucks)
  • If you are holding multiple events in a short amount of time, consider a calendar of events. However calendars that cover entire seasons of events are unlikely to stay posted for the duration. If you have a season’s worth of events, consider staggering your distribution run to maintain visibility. Handbills are also a good option in this case
  • Timing is everything - we prefer to receive posters up to 3 weeks prior to the start of the event
