There is also a small horizontal poster (20"x9") advertising this release (with the FAC 287 number), and a 40"60" poster to cover FAC 251. There are also 'Post-It' note pads: 'Electronic Get The Message', 'Factory', and the '2' all in blue on white paper-stock. German formats experimented with different colourways of the original Johnson/Panas artwork. Electronic possibly created a first when they performed the remix version of 'Get The Message' on Top of the Pops.
