Creating your poster with Microsoft Powerpoint

  1. Create your poster to actual size. Use Page Set-Up 42"(wide) X 36"(tall) (42" X 36"). This way you can view your file at actual size (100%) to verify resolution and quality.
  2. Overly complex posters created in PowerPoint can have display and printing issues. You will have less problems if you use fewer layers and keep your design simple. Adobe Illustrator is recommended for more complex designs, but note that Adobe Illustrator is not available in our computer labs.
  3. Try to use only system fonts. Arial and Times New Roman are reliable fonts.
