King-Size Bus Posters

The king size bus poster is an exterior display which may appear on either side of the bus. Copy is inserted in an aluminum frame attached to the side of the bus, or may be printed on self-adhesive, pressure-sensitive vinyl which is affixed directly to the side of the bus. Backlit kings are available in some markets.
