Every day people write and share open letters, get votes on quick polls, invite friends to parties or have stuff to sell. It's happening now, it's called social posters, and it's only on checkthis. The web has never been more colourful, instant and simple.

Welcome to the easiest, most beautiful way to create and share stunning social posters. Add text, images, videos, and more. Choose typefaces, colours and background. Then share your beautiful poster by email, on Facebook, or anywhere else. Optional registration, done in seconds – Simple. Free. Exactly like we did with this page.

Explore the beautiful new world of checkthis.

Publish here, share anywhere

How does it work? First step: put up your content and change how it looks. Second step: share your beautiful posters with friends and family. There is no third step.

How is that possible?
Everything you publish – pictures, text, and more – is automatically saved to its own web address. Something random or customisable like checkthis.com/1234. Then you can share your poster anywhere, including Facebook and Twitter.

What do I use it for?
All the stuff you can't fit in a status update. Stuff that isn't a blog post. Stuff that doesn't need a whole site of its own. Creative projects, in-depth conversations, band promotions, holiday plans... and stuff we haven't thought of yet.

So it's like a blog?
No, it's just a standalone page, a blank canvas for you to personalise. Think of it this way. You don't have to buy a car to get to the airport – that's what taxis are for. You don't need to set up a blog to publish to the web – that's what checkthis is for. Instant web publishing without the clutter.

Is it just one-way or social?
Checkthis can do both. It sits outside the social networks if that's what you prefer. But you can also tap straight into the wider community by setting up a quick poll and so on. And you can access instant feedback on how many people are viewing, commenting or voting on your page.

Where do I sign up?
You don't. Checkthis is open to all, straight away. Not even the most basic technical knowledge is required. We don't need to know your political view, your house number or your star sign. Just publish your posters without registering, or sign in using your optional account. Either way, you don’t even need a password.
