My teenage years were spent like most other teenagers – fantasizing about celebrities and kissing posters on my wall. I had posters all over my bedroom. “New Edition” was the group of the moment and I honestly thought if Ralph Tresvant could just meet me he would fall in love and we would get married.
I also had posters of variety of other posters but I didn’t kiss those ones. My parents despaired at my poor construction of said posters. Blue tack all over the walls, Sellotape and lipstick marks! They were not happy. I tried to clean the walls but it never worked – 5-year old tape marks the walls no matter what you do!
A quick poll of my friends shows that popular choices in the 80’s were indeed New Edition, but also pictures of hunky men holding tires and various other cheesy pop stars. Back Street Boys were fairly common as well.
And then of course there was my all time favorite female star Whitney Houston!
Teenagers may change their clothes, fashion, communication style and music tastes but posters all over your bedroom wall is a common part of growing up.
Even as an adult I have one poster – it’s in the hallway and is a beautiful image of a sunset which just makes me feel good every time I see it. Visitors always comment on it positively and it only cost me a few dollars.
Posters are great as instead of paying hundreds even thousands of dollars on artwork, you can get great images, photos and so on for a fraction of the price. Great for gift ideas and fantastic to brighten up a home.
Even my kids love posters. Right now, their walls are plastered with a variety of posters from very sporty cars, to the one and only Michael Jordan, to a pic of some female( who shall remain nameless) that they describe as hot-whatever!
Posters for some are considered works of art, depending on your perspective. From cartoon characters that your kids love, bands that most teenagers are crazy about, to classic artists us Moms and Dads adore, posters like the ones you can find at idposter.com is a great way to liven up a room. Who says you need to spend a million bucks to add a bit of jazz to your walls!
