Reviewers Comments: This simple, two-color poster is eye catching, making it hard to ignore. It delivers its message clearly and effectively. Includes specific references to Maine – “Maine has a weight problem” – which can be altered to be used in other states and communities. Can be printed in various sizes depending on printer capabilities. Most effective when used as a part of campaign including other posters from Maine’s Healthy Awareness Campaign: “TV: This is Not an Exercise Machine”, “These are Athletic Shoes”, “TV: Keep TV’s and Video Games Out of Your Child’s Bedroom“ and “Winter Workout: Are You Enjoying the Ups and Downs of Winter?”.
