Vault-Tec Industries Posters
We'll Be There
This pre-War poster depicts a cut-away of the Earth with part of a Vault shown underground, and a family with a picnic above. Vault Boy is looking down on the scene triumphantly, with the words; 'We'll Be There!' at the top. Three copies of this poster can often be found hastily plastered over the top of each other.
- The illustration in this poster comes from a real-word Bethesda Softworks expo poster from E3 2006.
It's never too late to apply for a place in a Vault-Tec Vault
Another piece from Vault-Tec's marketing division, It is titled; "Sign up at your local Vault shelter today!" and "It's never too late!". It shows Vault Boy holding up a form with 'Vault Shelter' written on it. A landscape orientation version of this poster exists as a billboard.
There won't really be a nuclear war - right?
This poster from Vault-Tec gives a morbid statement about the chances of a worldwide nuclear war, and that "the Earth may be destined to die, but you don't have to!" by purchasing a place in a vault. Similar to the other Vault-Tec poster, this poster shows a happy family walking over a cutaway drawing of the earth, with a vault below, and Vault Boy giving his famous wink and thumbs up, next to the slogan; "So imagine life in a Vault-Tec vault. Not just a future. A brighter future... underground.
Children are the Future
In white text on a black background, the poster reads, "Children Are The Future/Good Citizens Raising Good Citizens.". This poster is used in the Vault-Tec Vaults. E.g. in the Lone Wanderer's Apartment in Vault 101.
Hard Work is Happy Work
This poster stating that "Hard Work is Happy Work" is found in many vaults to encourage residents to be more productive when working by being happy. However, during Trouble on the Homefront, the words Hard and Happy are crossed out and instead reads Work is Work.
Thank You, Overseer!
This poster is also seen in vaults, to show the vault residents' appreciation for all the overseer has done for them. However, this is not the case when the Lone Wanderer returns to Vault 101 during Trouble on the Homefront. Rather than "Thank You, Overseer!", "Thank" has been crossed out and replaced with "Fuck" instead.
Be Aware Safety Always!
The Vault-Tec Safety Sign is a sign that advocates for safety in Vault-Tec facilities. On a white background, the red lettering on a black diamond reads: "Be Aware Always". A red Vault-Tec Symbol is below the word "Always".

In the background there is a post-apocalyptic urban wasteland and a mushroom cloud. This poster was designed and published by the Civil Defense Administration. The poster bears a striking resemblance to one used by Lenin to recruit people for the Red Army, as seen here.
Children's "Duck and Cover" education poster
A less frequently encountered poster, this one was created by the Civil Defense Administration to educate pre-War children about what to do when the nuclear apocalypse came, in a lighter fashion. It shows Bert the Turtle looking surprised by a stereotypical round, black bomb with a lit fuse in the top, exclaiming; "Oh my! DANGER!". He then hides inside his shell as the bomb detonates in a comic book style explosion, therefore protecting him from the blast. It has the caption; "Kids, learn to find shelter".

Giddyup, Buttercup! Ad
Giddyup Buttercup was a pre-War robot toy marketed towards girls. It emulated, with questionable proficiency, the behavior of a real horse. The ad declares the toy to be "Every girl's fantasy, Now a reality" for "Only $16,000," which suggests the future US economy in the Fallout universe is massively inflated.
