What we do
About Us: We’re the world’s most unique original art company. We make amazing travel posters and have never charged a design fee to our customers, we simply listen to our community. We will create just about any travel poster and have four methods to choose from to get your idea on our drawing board! The best way to follow the process is to like our Facebook page. See more information on Commissioning new artwork Here.
Our VisionOur art represents not just aircraft, armored cavalry or ships, it represents adventure and travel. This means we create posters featuring the Space Needle, New Orleans, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mt Rushmore and the National Mall. Of course, McChord AFB isn’t in Seattle but if you are stationed there your adventure surely involves the Space Needle! This is what makes Squadron Posters different–it’s about remembering where you’ve lived and what you’ve seen with a vintage themed travel poster.

The world of Squadron Posters!
Aviation Nose Art:
Placing personalized decorations on fighting aircraft began with Italian and German pilots. The first recorded piece of nose art was a sea monster painted on an Italian flying boat in 1913.
The Lafayette Escadrille squadron’s insignia depicted an “Indian head” (above) to give the unit a fierce look. American volunteer pilots served in the Lafayette Escadrille prior to America’s “official” entry into WWI.
Originally published as the cover for the July 6, 1916, issue of Leslie’s Weekly with the title “What Are You Doing for Preparedness?” this portrait of “Uncle Sam” went on to become–according to its creator, James Montgomery Flagg–“the most famous poster in the world.” Over four million copies were printed between 1917 and 1918, as the United States entered World War I and began sending troops and matériel into war zones.
In keeping with this great tradition, we invite all who have served our great nation to create and display artwork representing their time in service! See more HERE.
This is why we honor all branches of service and 1st responders as “all who serve our great country deserve great art”! – Squadron Posters
All of our artwork is original art created exclusively by Squadronposters.com, however some artwork may be an *updated modern version of older original art or public domain artwork to make them relevant for current events.
