Poster Design and Elements

Main elements of a poster include: title, brief introduction and highlights of the research idea(s), conclusions, methods and results, literature cited, references and acknowledgements. Here is a sample poster design to review.

  • Self-explanatory graphics should dominate the poster. A minimum amount of text materials should supplement the graphic materials.
  • Print should be readable three to six feet away.
  • Use font sizes proportional to importance.
  • Be sure to edit and evaluate your content before printing.
  • Common dimensions for posters are 24x36, 36x42 and 42x42. Portrait or landscape orientation is acceptable; none of the dimensions should exceed 42".
  • No matter what software you design your poster in, adjust the size so it scales and prints well. When saving your final document, be sure to save it as a PDF (if you are having it printed at the Raynor library)

Poster Printing

The College will cover the cost of one standard or glossy poster print from Raynor Memorial Library.  The College will not cover the cost of a poster that has been printed and/or used for a past conference, poster session, etc.

  • Several programs and file formats can be used; however PDF's are the only format submitted to the library (be sure to save your final document as a PDF).
  • Please allow at least three (3) business days for printing.
  • November 1 is the submission deadline to have your poster printed by the Raynor Library for this event. Please include "A&S Celebration of Research" in the information/notes field at the bottom of the request form.
