  • Please email posters to
    • Please identify the latest the poster can be picked up.
    • Please provide poster at least 3 business days prior to your needed pick up to allow for scheduling on our end.
      • Posters can usually be turned around more quickly, but please open a ticket to discuss and verify availability.
    • Please only submit PDF versions of your poster.
  • Keep one side below 41.5”
  • Before submitting, verify in the file properties that the PDF has retained its dimensions. Some “Print to PDF” functions will reduce it to an 8.5”x11” output.
  • Before submitting, I highly recommend you have one or more of your peers review the poster. The most common errors are:
    • failure to verify the poster's dimensions
    • failure to define acronyms
    • subtle formatting issues that would become a lot more obvious when blown up to full size (misaligned lines or columns and low resolution images). Viewing your file at 100% can help you identify these.
