What is the Average Size of a Billboard?
We get asked this quite a lot but the truth is there isn’t a set size for billboards, as there are lots of options to consider. Essentially the term "billboard" can cover anything from small A3 posters to giant 96 motorway adverts.
We have put together a helpful billboard sizes table further down this page which outlines the various sizes available for you to consider. Sometimes however more bespoke sites and options are available - so the below are not set in stone but merely a guide to the most typical and popular outdoor poster sites in the UK.
The most popular is the 48 sheet, this is typically the large poster sites seen at key roadside locations, at roundabouts and at train stations.
Which Billboard Sizes are the Best?
In the UK the most popular billboard sizes for advertising are generally 6 sheets, 48 sheet and 96 sheets sizes; however, there are a number of other sizes available, including 4 sheet posters, 12 sheets, 32 sheets and 64 sheets for you to consider.
With so many sizes to choose from it can be difficult and daunting to decide which is the best for your marketing campaign, however, our expert team can offer specialist advice and information based on what you are looking to achieve.
In most instances, what you are looking to promote and your message (e.g. your product, service or company) will help to determine which are the most effective billboard sizes for your campaign, whilst naturally, your marketing budget will also inform it as well.
Typically, the larger the billboard sizes, generally the more expensive they are, but there are other variables that may affect this which we can discuss.

Outdoor Display Advertising Sizes
Once you have decided on the most suitable billboard size for you the next thing to consider is the timings of your campaigns.
You should note that “run dates” (the length of time the poster is up for) for a standard outdoor campaign is normally for a minimum of 2 weeks. It’s also worth noting that the best locations tend to get booked up months ahead.
Planning your outdoor campaigns in Swansea ahead is therefore key to get you the sites, and ultimately the results, you desire.
Alternatively, if you are unsure about what billboard size or banner size you want to go for just let us know your budget and target area and we can put together a plan for you to consider.
With an in-house team of professional and experienced outdoor media buyers and planners, who have existing relationships in place with both independent and well-known outdoor media suppliers and advertising agencies, we can offer advice to help set up a campaign in Swansea that we think would generate the best results for you.
As Billboard Advertising UK isn’t wedded to one supplier this means we offer balanced views and opinions on what is right for you, rather than you advising you to purchase billboard sites which may not always be the best for your campaign but ones that we own.

Billboard Poster Printing
As well as designing and booking billboards we can also arrange the printing of various posters and we have a team of independent printers who we work with.
Often when booking larger sites – such as a 48 sheet billboard and 96 sheet billboards - you will find that production (printing) is included within this. For smaller campaigns – 4 and 6 sheets – you sometimes have to print your own posters and supply these to the media owner to be put up. This is something we will always check for you.
PromoMEDIA offers good printing rates if this is something you would need help with, simply follow this link and drop them a message.
Frequently Asked Question
- “I am looking into outdoor advertising but am uncertain as to which billboard sizes are the best? Some people have recommended we go for a 16 sheet, whilst others have suggested either a 32 sheet or 48 sheet billboards. We ideally are looking for something on main roads or at a busy roadside. What do you think would be most effective?” As you can imagine there are lots of options to consider and lots of billboard sizes to choose from. If you are looking for something for roadsides, there are some nice 6 sheet options (typically at bus stops) but these posters are quite small and often seen by people on the street rather than drivers. If you want something larger than bus stops seen by both, 48 sheet billboards or 96 sheet billboards would probably be the best. These are typically printed but sometimes there are digital billboard options for these as well. Contact us for more information.
