It is important to set up your slide to a size that is proportional to the printed size of the poster. In PowerPoint, go to Page Setup and select Custom. Fill in the proper width and height.
The following printed poster sizes are available:
48 inches (w) x 48 inches (h) – square
48 inches (w) x 24 inches (h) – landscape
24 inches (w) x 24 inches (h) – square
Maximum poster size: each poster can be a maximum size of 48 inches wide x 48 inches high.
One slide only please! – Your Poster will be created from a single PowerPoint slide. Please submit only one slide per poster.
Fonts – Choose two fonts at most, nothing cursive. Stick to sans-serif fonts for legibility: Arial and Helvetica are recommended. If you wish to use a serif font, we recommend Times New Roman (Windows) or Times (Macintosh).
Excel Charts – You can paste Excel charts into PowerPoint: from Excel, select your chart and Copy, then in PowerPoint, Paste the chart where you want it to appear. For detailed instructions, please click here.
Word Text – insert a text box into your PowerPoint slides, copy the text from your Word document and paste it into the textbox in your slide.
Image Files – To add image file, select “Insert”>”Picture”. Images should be good quality and appear clear and sharp on your screen. Since they will be enlarged for printing, we recommend that images are set to a resolution of 300 dpi.
Backgrounds – For legibility and viewing ease, we suggest that you keep your backgrounds simple and avoid using dark colors.
