Make your own HeatKills poster, with tear-off tabs

Written by on August 30, 2014 in Posters


HeatKillsflyer1-borderThanks to the feedback of some passionate dog parents, I realized that while the HeatKills poster I originally designed is helpful, it doesn’t provide a convenient means to learn more, if the observer doesn’t write down the URL.

To solve this problem, and go further than simply reserving room on the poster itself for tear-off tabs, I came up with an idea for having numerous rows of tear-off-tabs, that’s easy to construct.

The key is providing you with the means of printing out several rows of tear-off tabs at a time, then cutting, layering and pasting these rows to the back of the flyer, so that conceivably, the same poster could house 40 or more tear-off tabs at the same time:

The PDF below consists of two pages: the poster itself, and a page containing two rows of tear-off tabs:

To construct the poster with tear-off tabs

To download and print this poster and the tear-off tabs, go to this URL:

Print out multiple pages of tear-off-tabs (page 2), cut apart, then paste (tape) to back of poster as follows:


Voila! You now have a poster with 30-4o tear-off tabs that you can now post wherever you determine they’re most need.


Examples of where these posters have been placed in Charlottesville, VA

Below is a picture of the poster with tabs that I affixed to the welcome board at the entrance to the Darden Towe Park off-leash dog area, in Charlottesville, VA:
