Custom Posters

Poster Size Storyboards

Find this and other great teacher resources in our Education Blog!



One of the best things about Storyboard That is you can make so many cool things customized to your own needs. Choose from different cell sizes, storyboard layouts, customizable scenes, dynamic character poses, and more.

Make a Poster for Wall or Digital Display

While much of the walls are often spoken for boards, technology, furniture, and so on, those extra touches you make are not just "decoration". The wall space of a classroom is secret prime real estate for extra teaching and topic reinforcement.


Post large graphic organizers and images:


  • Subject Reference
  • Instructions/Rules/Procedures
  • Birthday/Job/Other Board
  • Inspiration/PSA
  • Schedule

In addition to these typical classroom posters, I have a few more ideas for bringing the art of Storyboard That into your classroom!


Class Portraits

As a community-building activity, have your class make its own class portrait! The completed project can be printed out on over-sized paper and put on the wall or door. Either choose the characters for the students yourself, or give them each a 2-minute turn at the computer to choose their own over the day/week. Put your own spin on the activity like choosing any of the characters available (including monsters, animals, myths, etc.) and doing a whole class activity to guess which character each student picked. Another idea would be to have kids choose a future profession and show themselves with adult characters and items.

Class Collage


Instead of a class portrait, the class could make a collage of items, characters, and scenes. This would also make a good whole class guessing activity. Either make one large storyboard, or have each student complete his own cell/storyboard to be printed and incorporated with the others.

Personalized Special Education Posters & Charts

There are many graphic organizers, charts, reminders, and other items that many special education students need to be successful academically, socially, or both. Sometimes, individual students need very specialized materials that are made for assignments, behavior charts, and many more. Below are two versions of the same chart. The black and white version is meant to be printed and given to the student to color in. The full color version is designed to be regularly updated on the computer.

However, if you have a student or a small group that meets regularly, you may want to make your own poster or oversized chart that you can hang on the wall. Imagery and text can be updated regularly, and if you are worried about printing color storyboards, click on the "Remove Colors" button on your scenes, characters, and items and/or use the "Grayscale" filter!
