Poster sessions at conferences and professional meetings are a way to visually convey the details of your research or conclusions. This guide will offer you the basics in design, content and printing resources.
Once approval has been sent, request an appointment date and time by email, phone (646-981-4532), or in person
Prepare For Your Appointment
Set the dimensions of your poster before your printing appointment.
Note: if you change the dimensions after designing the poster, the text and graphics may shift.
The maximum dimension for one side of the poster is 36”. The other dimension can be up to 10 feet (not recommended). The most commonly used dimensions are 36”x48” or 24”x36”. We can print either portrait or landscape (landscape is more common for posters).
Preview your poster to make sure it looks exactly as you want it to.
We can only print posters from PowerPoint or PDF files. There are often issues printing PowerPoint files created on Macs, so it is best to save your file in PDF format.
Save the files to be printed on a flash drive.
Students must be present to preview the poster on the computer before it is sent to the printer.
