Poster Printing Advice

  • Check beforehand to find out how long in advance you'll need to submit your poster to the poster printing service of your choice. 
  • Proofread your poster multiple times before printing out the final version.  Try printing out a small copy of your poster on a standard printer, and get a collegue or friend to critique it.  Nothing is worse than getting a 5 foot poster printed and then noticing a typo or an issue with a graphic!
  • Leave at least 1-2 inches of blank space around the perimeter of your poster.  Not only will it look better to your audience, but sometimes text or graphics too close to the edge of your document can get cut off when printed.

Another option is to print at a location near your conference and pick it up there (some will deliver to major conferences/hotel venues).
