In 1987, when I created the first ORILLIA POSTERMAP at Impression House, the city was a much smaller place. The annual publication became popular and grew with the area. The last ORILLIA POSTERMAP was printed in 2002. Orillia has changed a great deal over those years. The vitality of our downtown is inspiring.

I revived the ORILLIA POSTERMAP in early 2020. Shortly it was determined best to wait out the unknown.
For 2021 – I  fully updated the POSTERMAP. Revising the coloured maps to include the many new streets. Added new buildings and renovations to Downtown Streetscape illustration. It was well received.

The 2022 Edition PosterMap improved on the map detail and reached many more viewers. Posted prints are now seen around the area. 2023 will again expand the number of Postings.

The success of this project depends on a variety of local advertisers participating, providing a snapshot of the Orillia business community. Each advertiser acts as an agent for all the others.  I firmly believe this publication provides a unique way to both promote your business and our community.

There are many ways this media offers good value. I welcome the opportunity to share them with you.
