Hi, Is there a 3D shapes poster that matches?

Hi Alison, We do have 3D Objects Posters. If you search for ‘3D Objects’ rather than ‘3D Shapes’ you will find our collection. Kind regards, Janeen.

Hi, I was just wondering why the individual posters use the term trapezoid when the A3 versions use trapezium? Do you have any individual posters with trapezium? Thank you 🙂

Hi Kerry,

Thank you for your comment. We have updated the poster to reflect the term trapezium and it is available to download again now.

Kind regards
