Interested in metric posters? Here’s what’s available from USMA.
Free (for $1.50 shipping & handling) SI units poster
Titled SI Units, this poster contains the seven SI base units and most of the SI derived units with special names. Printed in two colors, black and red, the poster looks very similar to the illustration to the left.

A large supply of these posters remain, and USMA will send them free for the cost of shipping and handling.
