Instructions for Poster Preparation


Poster Preparation

  • Your poster size (PowerPoint or PDF) should be 34 inches (height) by 44 inches (width). Please obtain a template from your mentor and make sure it is set with the right parameters (PAGE SETUP: height 34" and width 44"). Make sure that the text and figures are at least one inch away from the four (4) margins.
  • The layout should be readable from a distance. Remember the presentation is visual. This is NOT an essay or prose paper. Please be creative in designing your posters; however, use "White" background to reduce the cost of printing (toner).
  • The presentation board is 4 ft. by 4 ft. and is made of fabric. Your poster will be mounted on the presentation board with Velcro. Please note that Velcro will be provided to the presenters.

  • If you miss the deadline to submit the poster, you have to print your poster at FedEx or other printing facility. You will NOT be allowed to use Printing Room, 303 DuBois Hall.
