What to do with hand made educational posters for primary school?
March 7, 2014 2:35 PM Subscribe
I have spent several hundred hours over the last six months creating A2 charts (420X594mm). They are about 50 in total, covering topics taught in Maths in Primary School. They are displayed in the Maths room in my school and I'm proud of the fact that the children constantly refer to them during lessons. I have been told by colleagues and visitors that they are very appealing. Unlike the laminated, commercial posters on the market which are rather tacky, these hand-made posters capture the essence of upper primary topics in very digestible chunks. I would love these posters to have a wider audience. How do I do this? (more inside)

Having never dealt in anything commercial being a classroom assistant, I do not know where to begin. Apply for copyright? Go to educational fairs? Write to publishers? Can original hand made posters be reproduced to look like the original? Are they expensive to reproduce? I do not have money to spare, and I doubt whether I could get a cheap loan to cover this expense.
If it is unlikely for much money to be earned, I would still love these posters to make it to other schools' class-rooms. I would earn goodwill in local schools and feel proud that I have made a positive contribution to the learning of a generation of children. How do I pitch it without sounding arrogant? After all, I am going to tell the Maths teachers that my posters are better than those available commercially.
I am in the UK in case it's relevant.
