Students' Poster Preparation Guidelines

General Guidelines: 

Preparing a well-organized, visually-pleasing poster requires good plan well in advance. First, students need to consider their audience and type of poster they'll create. Next, they need to gather supplies and decide what information to include. From this point, they need to create the text and graphics. Remember to format the poster as follows:

    • STANDARD Poster Size: 36 inches X 48 inches
    • Layout orientation: Landscape or Portrait
    • Materials: Paper-based (with matte finish or coated paper) or foam board (including tri-folds)
    • Key Information: Include, as a minimum the following information: Title, Name, Phone, Email, University, Location, and Type of Poster: Research or Project
