I hated going to the orthodontist as a kid. It was the most painful and unpleasant recurring experience of my childhood. While a grumpy old man tightened the wires on my braces, I stared straight ahead at one of the posters hanging on the wall. There was one in front of every dentist’s chair.
They were the generic kind with a black border, a nature photo, and a word like “Determination” underneath, followed by a quote from some unknown Hallmark gift card writer.
Don’t be like my orthodontist. Instead, decorate your office or home with modern and inspirational printed wall art.
Here are 50 motivational prints for your business shop and office walls that will boost productivity. And if those don’t work for you, why not to design a poster yourself?
The posters are only as good as the motivational message
Words matter more than we can imagine in an inspirational poster. Since it’s a short amount of space, it’s even more important to choose the correct message.
We can customize the messages to help the people that we’re making these posters for.
Choose a relevant phrase that will give your employees more “power”. Here is a sample of some great phrases we like to go with:
Provide support: Embrace the journey, for within it lies the strength to surpass your wildest dreams.
Happy: Embrace the beauty of each moment and let happiness paint the canvas of your life.
Start: Start now, for the future belongs to those who take action in the present.
Grow: Nurture your mind, for knowledge is the key that unlocks endless possibilities of growth and transformation.
Time: To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
Confirm: Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid
Boost morale: Be So Good They Can’t Ignore You.
