Guidelines for Creating and Printing a Poster

1. Each person has one 42" x 36" set up space per research project for displaying his or her poster on stands provided by the Science Division in the lobby of the Boyd Science Center. Please make the size of your poster 42" x 36". Most posters are done in landscape orientation, but you can do it in portrait orientation.

2. Posters need to be in Microsoft PowerPoint or a PDF file. Check with your advisor, faculty in your department or program, or the secretary in the science building with questions or to get your poster printed. There are examples of posters displayed on the walls within Boyd Science Center on the second and fourth floors.

3. Make titles and headings as large as possible to make your poster easy to read. Use graphics wherever appropriate to make your poster attractive. Please add a date of publication. Include in your acknowledgement section any external support.

4. To print your poster, email it to the science building secretary at or take it to the Science Office on a flashdrive, SC 318.
