Poster Development Tips

  • Materials should include the title of the presentation and list of authors. Letters in the title should be at least 1 inch high. Bring all illustrations needed — figures, tables, color photographs, charts.
  • The material should be well labeled and legible from a distance of 6-10 feet away. Lettering should be bold. If you will be posting typed material, use a large font size (24 point font) on white, non-glossy paper. Use 1-inch margins. Avoid use of fancy fonts. Use upper and lowercase letters. Sans serif fonts such as Veranda are much easier to read than Serif fonts.
  • Poster must be in landscape orientation. Poster size requirements:
    • Minimum = 24” x 36”
    • Maximum = 36″ x 48″
