Effective Poster Presentation

Students presenting posters are generally in Business, Education, Engineering, Sciences, or Social Sciences. Maximum poster size should be 36" tall x 46.5" wide. 

Remember that posters are a visual media. People should be able to see information standing at a distance of 3 feet. Font sizes less than 24 can be difficult to read. Sans serif fonts (e.g., Arial or Verdana) are preferable to serif fonts (e.g., Times New Roman or Palatino) for clarity. Phrases and bullet points are preferable rather than paragraphs.
