Full Answer

The Braille Store poster provides a large, 24-by-36-inch Braille alphabet chart. The type is very large, allowing each letter and its Braille equivalent to be seen from a long distance. As of August 2015, the price of the poster on Amazon.com is $8.95, which does not include shipping costs.

While the Braille Store poster simply shows the letters of the alphabet, the Zazzle.com chart provides the alphabet along with common words and numbers in Braille and a description of the Braille system. Zazzle.com allows its customers to customize the poster size and paper type and provides the option to frame the poster. Prices vary accordingly with paper quality and size; the smallest chart (17.27-by-16 inches) on Value Poster costs $21.10, while the largest poster (34.54-by-32 inches) on Premium Canvas costs $152.95. There are also additional framing and shipping costs.

Of note, on both The Braille Store and Zazzle.com posters, the Braille letters of the alphabet are not printed with raised type.
