海报是人们日常生活中最为常见的一种张贴形式，用用语电影，戏曲，球赛，文艺演出等活动。海报中通常写明活动的性质，活动的主办单位i，时间，地点等内容。海报的语言力求简明扼要，形式做到新颖美观。海报的格式，通常有三个部分，即标题，正文，落款。海报的标题是海报 的宣传“窗口”。因此海报的标题撰写尽量做到简介明了，新颖醒目。抓住读者的兴趣和注意力。海报的标题形式通常两种：一是直接使用“海报”(Poster)一词;另一种则是根据海报的内容撰写标题。海报的正文是海报的核心部分，它是对海报标题的具体描写。语言要求形象生动，简明扼要。做到既有鼓动性，又不夸大其词。海报的落款写明主办单位 的名称及撰写日期。海报的落款通常写在海报的左下角，日期位于主办单位名称的下方，既可写在左下角，也可写在右下角。
