Larger posters were influenced by those of a French theatre company who visited London in 1672, printed not only in black, but more expensive red ink. By the end of the century, London theatres produced similar posters or 'Great Bills', as well as the smaller ones, despite their extra cost. Gradually more information about the performances appeared on both sizes of poster, and the smaller ones were distributed in the streets and delivered to the homes of regular playgoers. Actors’ names began to appear, and some complained if their names didn't feature in large enough letters.
