Poster creation tips and examples

Poster dynamics

  • The maximum dimension of the board is 48″ high by 70″ wide
  • The average poster is usually 36″ high by 48″ wide
  • The minimum poster size is 24″ high by 36″ wide
  • Choose a landscape (horizontal) orientation for your poster
  • The poster will be attached using clips and tape
  • Stick with a light, durable poster material
  • Posters may be made out of poster board with information attached, or they can be printed (printed posters are more visually appealing)

Poster printing tips

  • The easiest and cheapest method is probably UC San Diego’s Cplot (provided by the good people at Educational Technology Services, formerly known as ACMS)
  • Dan Clark has excellent instructions on how to print a poster at UCSD
  • You can also go to ScantechImprints, or Replica. These may be priced higher than Educational Technology Services, but they will help you set up your file to make sure there are no printing mistakes. FedEx Kinko’s is a more expensive option.
  • If your mentor, department, or lab are paying to print your poster, Educational Technology Services and Imprints can take UCSD recharge payments.
  • Be sure to print early! It takes a few days for the poster to be completed.
