Globe Poster Company

Globe Poster, located in Baltimore, M.D., was one of the nation’s largest showcard companies and has been telling the story of R&B and all forms of American music and entertainment through bright and iconic posters since 1929. Globe began by printing posters for vaudeville acts, movie theaters, burlesque houses and carnivals, and became known for its work with R&B and soul performers-including James Brown, Ike and Tina Turner and Solomon Burke-and later hip-hop acts. Big, bold, fat type, Day-Glo colors and distinctive lettering were hallmarks of the Globe style.
