How to use PowerPoint to Format Your Poster

Sample Poster Simensions

Powerpoint will only allow a maximum width or height of 56 inches. If you need a larger size you can get around this by creating a poster half the size of the final output size. For instance, if you need a poster that's final size is 42 by 60 inches, then in page setup set the size to 21 x 30.

Poster Tips

Want to make your graphs a little more legible and easier to grasp the information you are trying to convey, try naked data.

Tabular data may be necessary to get your point across but too much styling can make them less clear. Less is more.



Poster Tubes

The education office has a few poster tubes available for loan for residents who need to transport posters to conferences. Please email Jerry LeClerc  to check availability and reserve a tube. To ensure that your co-residents have access to the poster tubes, you must return the tube within 3 days of returning from the conference. Each day additional day will accrue a $5 charge that will be subtracted from your educational allowance.
