      Generally printables are created in a very basic PDF format by a designer so you can’t change the copy. However if you’re handy with illustrator, you could potentially hack it, though the type does overlap. Sorry I don’t have a better answer! I know it’s a very cool poster idea. Maybe you could make one in PicMonkey?
