Frequently asked questions on poster advertising

Billboards and location search

The final price that appears at the end, does it really include everything? No additional costs, such as transportation costs etc. will occur, won't they?

1-2-3-Plakat.de prices are „all inclusive“ prices. Billboard campaigns consists of two cost areas. First, the cost of printing. These include the dispatch costs. Secondly the mediacosts of the billboards. These include the costs of installing.

What is the lead time for a booking? By what time at the latest must the date be booked?

In fact, that is an easy question to answer. Once you have selected a place, you will be shown a list with dates available for advertising within the Location selection area. The first mentioned date there is, at the same time, the earliest date available for advertising.

If it needs to go faster, there is an express button at the date selection. Here you will get earlier dates for additional costs.

Is it possible to book a date for the next year already now or only the dates and periods shown on the respective sites available?

No. Unfortunately, you cannot book outdoor advertising for the next year. However, this is not due to 1-2-3-Plakat.de, but due to the poster companies owning the billboards. They usually publish and release the dates and prices for the next year not until October/November. We would like to ask you to try it once again in November or send us an e-mail to info123plakat.de and we will get back to you as soon as bookings for the next year are possible.

I would like to reserve a location but have not yet finished the poster motif.

Unfortunately, it isn't. Posters are always marketed for ten days and changed after this period. If you want your motif to be published for a longer period of time, you may book several periods of ten days in a row.

Motif design and printing

No. The affixing of the posters is included in the media costs.

Why can I only upload one single motif per medium?

The printing price per poster falls with increasing number of copies. So cost one poster for example € 89.00 including shipping and with a circulation of 10 same motives only € 60.00 per piece. For the system to apply this price scale, we need to receive for each medium every motif in a separate order. So we also know exactly which motives has to be hung at which location.

Radio Yerevan answers: "In principle, yes, it is, but ...."

Posters to be placed at billboards require a certain type of paper and must be produced in quite large individual parts.

The design should immediately strike the viewer in order not to be missed. Include a funny text or an unusual motif and every poster becomes an eye catcher.
