(Fatwa: 651/651/SD=08/1437)

It is not lawful as per the Shariah to print the pictures of human beings, animals, devi devtas on digital board and printing flex paper. Hadiths sternly warns on making the pictures of living beings. Hence it is not lawful to provide service of advertisement agency that contains living beings.
