I know that a lot of posters were printed out during World War 1, but am confused by the cost for the government to produce all these, a google search normally yields some results - but this time it is very confusing:

I have also been unable to find the number of posters printed out.

I'd start by finding out which firms actually did the printing and then perhaps looking up their archives. –  Felix Goldberg May 4 '13 at 13:06
    
Any idea where to start? –  clickonMe May 4 '13 at 13:20

Since you are asking all this WW 1 propaganda/poster-related questions I'd be interested to hear a bit more about the context: are you researching the period for some specific reason or task? Just curious. –  Drux May 5 '13 at 6:37
