I was thinking these would be printed at maybe 20"x30" or maybe larger 
proportions. These are just rough cuts so they do need some padding to 
fit that ratio, right now they scale to 20"x~24". At 20"x24", the two 
rows of text together are (if I'm measuring right) about 1.5" tall so 
I'm thinking not readable from 6 feet away.

Do you think they'd work if we just took the text out?

Maybe it could be resized and the little sound bites shortened even 
more, into 2-3 word phrases?
