    Poster Forge allows you to create three different types of posters namely Motivational, Movie and Wanted posters. There are predefined templates for each of the three poster styles. You can select a particular type and then customize the poster data settings.

    While creating motivational posters you first choose the orientation of the poster, be it either landscape or portrait. You can then set the image for the background of the poster and align the image as per the border constraints. Then you have an option of setting the title of the poster and also the motivational text to go with it. You can also customize the background and border color to enhance the appeal of the poster.

    You can easily create movie posters using the template provided by Poster Forge. It has advanced tools to set fade characteristics and alignment constraints. All the text options for the movie poster can be easily customized like setting the title, tagline, release date and the credits. You also have an option of customizing the font and color of all the text you enter in the poster.

    You can create funny and creative wanted posters from the old western cowboy days using Poster Forge. All the text in this poster is customizable like the wanted signature, crime committed, name of the person and reward if caught.

    Poster Forge provides advanced printing capabilities to print posters of variable sizes.
