Plain Talk

Bulletin boards are a community based form of advertising. There are no absolute guarantees. We try not to cover or remove other flyers. There will always be glitches. You must do that "trust thang" and understand that all posters will be posted as promised, not always at the particular locations you want due to space constraints, but we will do a damndest to make that happen! You can email us concerning "glitches" and other concerns.

Fritz

And now a word from our founder Fritz Blaw

I moved to Austin in '77. I graduated with an UT Education degree. In '89 I bought Rollerblades and began skating/motorcycling posters to legal spots in Austin for dance & theatre shows I was in GRATIS. My reputation grew and people began hiring me to "poster" for their events. I called it Motorblade Postering Service to represent my two methods of transport. I got married, left Pease Elementary Afterschool, and started Motorblade SK8 Skool to support my new family. After 30 years (15 years as mascot for TXRD Rollergirls ) Corona hit and I sold my poster business to the Acevedo family. I now live in Philly and will teach kids in afterschool/summer programs again. Take care of Austin for me, love and weirdness, Fritz.
