Historical Background Behind the WWII posters

“The United States government used posters more than any other type of propaganda media, and produced more propaganda posters than any other country fighting in World War II. Almost 200,000 different designs were printed by the U.S. during World War II.

“The Office of War Information (OWI) was created in 1942 to document America's mobilization for the was effort in films, texts, photographs, radio programs and posters. The posters would target specific emotions – hope, anger, patriotism – to encourage and discourage certain behaviors that were seen as essential to winning the war. Messages centered on unifying the public behind the war, recruiting soldiers and nurses, financing the war effort through war bonds and conserving resources.”

“The Office of War Information (OWI) Bureau of Graphics was the government agency in charge of producing and distributing propaganda posters. The war posters were not designed by the government, but by artists who received no compensation for their work. Government agencies held competitions for artists to submit their designs, allowing the government to increase the number of designs that it could choose from. . . . 
“Posters were usually placed in areas without paid advertisements. The most common areas were post offices, railroad stations, schools, restaurants and retail stores. Smaller posters were printed for the windows of private homes and apartment buildings.”

          Amazing products, quick shipping

          I have thoroughly enjoyed my Raising of Old Glory on Surabachi t-shirt. It has received a lot of compliments and is a great conversation starter. I also ordered a print of the Declaration of Independence. The depressed lettering is amazing and gleams a lot of compliments hanging in my home. Thank you History List

          WW11 posters

          I bought this poster of all the WW11 poster ads for my son. He loves it. I will have it framed for him soon.

          Excellent display of WWII history!

          What a terrific print! Heayweight paper stock, well-printed, this will be an awesome piece to display in my office. It’s great having so many images of WWII in one place!

          Love this poster

          I *love* this poster! I love having all of these images in one place. There’s so much to look at and think about as you consider the individuals images. If I was a history teacher this would definitely be hanging in my room.

          Fascinating print for WWII history lovers

          I have always loved WWI posters, and this print includes more than 100 covering every aspect of life on the homefront, from joining the Women's Ordnance Workers to having a home garden, saving fat from cooking, not talking about troop movements, and "Fish is fighting food!" You'll find ones we've surely seen and dozens and dozens of posters you've probably never seen.

          Very attractive. High-quality printing on heavy paper. Deserves a place in the home of every person who is a student of WWII. Great teaching tool for teachers, too.
