Maybe you caught This Post from a couple weeks ago on a Flickr Pool Of Unofficial READ Posters. Mary Mackay from over at the ALA did, and she sent in this:

Making READ posters is really popular, and people come up with some great ideas. It sounds as though not everyone has discovered the two READ CDs that are published by ALA Graphics. The CDs provide all the
tools you need to create the posters--and also make you legit since the CDs include permission to use the trademarked concept. For the creative types who want to find out more, here's the link.

And a bonus . . . For an easy library or school project, simply send in any READ poster you have created using the READ CD 2 and you could win a $100 gift certificate from ALA Graphics and be featured in American Libraries magazine. Your READ poster can feature patrons, staff, students, teachers, or (of course) yourself. Submissions are due by May
31, 2006. For more information, please visit This Page @ The ALA Store.

The CD contains several pre-designed READ posters and bookmarks as well as a selection of backgrounds and type styles so you can create your own. It ain't cheap, but it is the way to create legit posters.
