In general, posters should strive to be readable from a distance of a few feet and limit their content to no more than 600-800 words.
A standard poster size is (48″ x 36”), though other sizes may be accommodated, within reason.
A good starting point is to design your poster with fonts in ranges that let people easily read text from a meter, with the caveat that some fonts are harder to read (avoid serif fonts, if possible). A general guide:
- Titles 72+
- Sub-titles 54+
- Text 30+
- Sub-text 20+
There is an option for you to have your poster printed on-site at no cost to you.
Color prints can be made up to 41.5” x 48″. If you would like to make use of this service, PDFs of posters should be uploaded to our shared Google Drive folder by Thursday, May 26, 2022.
