  • The challenge we had when developing this placard was not just to develop an environmentally friendly alternative. Our aim was to find a solution which is environmentally friendly as well as being quicker to assemble and dispose of, and above all cheaper than existing placards. The Vordermann placard combines all these advantages.
  • Vordermann placards are printed by the offset method – this enables up to 18,000 placards an hour to be produced on one printing machine. The freedom from ties to the plastics market ensures significantly improved price stability.
  • The innovative nature of the mounting means that the placard only needs to be a fraction of the thickness of conventional counterparts, so it can be produced using a cheaper and faster printing process. This also means that it saves space and is cheaper to ship.
  • The Vordermann placard consists of at least 90% recycled wood fibres, and its use therefore largely forms part of a closed-loop materials life cycle.
  • Vordermann placards can be classified on an EU-wide basis to grades 2.10 or 2.11 of the “European List of Standard Grades of Recovered Paper and Board” according to EN 643, and consequently disposed of as waste paper. Vordermann placards have already proved their worth hundreds of thousands of times over in elections in Germany, Luxembourg and Austria.

Here’s what some customers have to say about them, as well as some surveys:

I have received very favourable feedback from our local associations about the very high quality of the Vordermann placard.

– T. Heldberg, (FDP General Secretary)

An item of customer feedback following periods of severe bad weather in Hamburg:

The result [following the bouts of bad weather, note] looks fantastic! I’m really impressed – if the Vordermann placards withstand bad weather like this, they can withstand anything.

(E. Botzenhart, the Greens)

Vordermann placards are the future technology.

(J. Schubert, media consultant, election lead agency)

About us

Our "Begeisternder Wahlkampf and Vordermann-Plakat" online shops and service is specifically for election campaigners. Our special products provide the answers which meet the specific requirements of election campaigners (or customers with similar needs) that have not been properly addressed up to now. We are not a production facility, we see ourselves rather as product designers for exciting (German "Begeisternde") products. We entrust production matters to our great network of partners who are fully proficient in this field - they always fulfill our customer needs to state of the art levels.

Brothers Carsten and Christian Wutke developed the Begeisternder Wahlkampf concept. The company was founded in 2007.

The Swiss management consultant, Dr. Patrick Stähler, comments on it as follows: “Begeisternder Wahlkampf” has a great business model because it simply understands what politicians need for a good campaign. The politicians concentrate on the content, and Begeisternder Wahlkampf on everything else.”
