Poster Printing Advice
Poster printing services, poster printing services: school and hospital specific.
- Check beforehand to find out how long in advance you'll need to submit your poster to the poster printing service of your choice.
- Proofread your poster multiple times before printing out the final version. Try printing out a small copy of your poster on a standard printer, and get a collegue or friend to critique it. Nothing is worse than getting a 5 foot poster printed and then noticing a typo or an issue with a graphic!
- Leave at least 1-2 inches of blank space around the perimeter of your poster. Not only will it look better to your audience, but sometimes text or graphics too close to the edge of your document can get cut off when printed.

What is a Research Poster?
Posters are widely used in the academic community, and most conferences include poster presentations in their program. Research posters summarize information or research concisely and attractively to help publicize it and generate discussion.
The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.
What Makes a Good Poster?
- Important information should be readable from about 10 feet away
- Title is short and draws interest
- Word count of about 300 to 800 words
- Text is clear and to the point
- Use of bullets, numbering, and headlines make it easy to read
- Effective use of graphics, color and fonts
- Consistent and clean layout
- Includes acknowledgments, your name and institutional affiliation
A Sample of a Well Designed Poster

Image credit: Poster Session Tips by [email protected], via Penn State
Where do I begin?
Answer these three questions:.
- What is the most important/interesting/astounding finding from my research project?
- How can I visually share my research with conference attendees? Should I use charts, graphs, photos, images?
- What kind of information can I convey during my talk that will complement my poster?
What software can I use to make a poster?
A popular, easy-to-use option. It is part of Microsoft Office package and is available on the library computers in rooms LC337 and LC336. ( Advice for creating a poster with PowerPoint ).
Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign
Feature-rich professional software that is good for posters including lots of high-resolution images, but they are more complex and expensive. NYU Faculty, Staff, and Students can access and download the Adobe Creative Suite .
Open Source Alternatives
- OpenOffice is the free alternative to MS Office (Impress is its PowerPoint alternative).
- Inkscape and Gimp are alternatives to Adobe products.
- For charts and diagrams try Gliffy or Lovely Charts .
- A complete list of free graphics software .

How to print a fabric poster
Published by katie on april 5, 2022 april 5, 2022.
Or anything else on fabric!
*This is not an advertisement, I get nothing from link clicks.
Are you headed to a conference and need to present a poster? Here’s a step-by-step guide for how I print my posters!
Why you should print a fabric poster:
- It’s cheaper! My fabric posters cost ~$20, paper posters at local shipping stores cost at least $60 for the same size, and then you have to pay to check your luggage because it counts as a carry-on item.
- It looks amazing – print quality looks just as good, if not better than traditional paper.
- No more bulky poster tube!
- You can use the poster afterwards for all sorts of other craft projects.
- Here’s what it will look up-close .
- Design your poster!
I use powerpoint, other options include Canva, Inkscape, or Indesign. Google “good scientific poster” if you want design ideas.
- Protip : Add QR codes. Link to your research articles, your twitter, or your linkedin. You can use any free QR code generator.
2. Make sure your “page size” (under page setup in powerpoint) is the same size as you want your full size poster. For this example, my poster is, 45 x 36 inches.
3. Export your poster as a pdf.
3. Open that pdf with any software, and export it as a jpeg. Make sure your DPI (or pixels per inch) is 150, this will ensure best quality.
4. Open that jpeg, zoom in, and make sure nothing looks blurry.
How to make sure your image quality is good:
- If your picture prints blurry, that is your fault, not the printer – you didn’t upload high enough quality.
- Make sure all of the images in your editing file are SUPER high quality! Blurry on your screen will print blurry.
- When you are saving, use 150 DPI. This is necessary for spoonflower to print your image just how you want it.
- I have never had any problems with print quality, except when one of my inner images was lower quality. Yes, microscopy images look stellar.
5. Go to Spoonflower.com and set up a free account.
6. Click on “Upload design”
- Make sure you qualify for their copyright! You must be the artist/creater/owner, do not steal other people’s work or art and upload it.
- Check out their copyright policy here , they do not own any of the copyright to your work.
7. Upload your design!
8. Pick your details, here are my favorites.
- First, click “single”
- I like “performance pique” fabric. It is soft, prints beautifully, doesn’t wrinkle, and is affordable. It is machine washable, and there is no ink bleeding during washing.
- Choose 1 yard. Here is how to calculate to make sure you got your fabric size correct:
- What is your poster size? Here, mine is 45 x 36.
- What is the size of a yard? This depends on the fabric type, it says right there in the selection. My fabric, Performance Pique is 56 by 36, so my poster will fit.
- If your poster will fit one direction but not the other (for example, if my poster is 30 by 50), go back to your jpeg on your computer. Rotate it. Re-upload it, and it will be sideways and now fit in the yard.
- If your poster is too big for one yard, order 2 yards. Or even better, go back to your poster design and adjust the size by a couple inches. When a conference gives a poster size, this is the MAXIMUM poster size, you can be smaller than that size to fit on the provided poster board.
- Look at the picture that has rulers on the side to see if your size looks correct.
9. Place your order! My cost is typically ~$20, plus $3 shipping. Typically, it takes 1 week to print and 1 week to ship, but it can vary, so give yourself at least 2-3 weeks.
- I will be the one to tell you: You will not have more data in a week or two that you will include on your poster. Just give yourself a deadline and get it done, I know it’s tempting to wait so that you can include more, but just get it done and relax before you have to travel.
- You may have some extra white fabric depending on your poster size, just cut it off with scissors and use it for another craft project.
- Hang your poster using thumbtacks or tape. They hang beautifully. You can iron the fabric in your hotel room if you need to, but mine have never wrinkled.
Enjoy your awesome poster! Here’s what you can do with it afterwards .

Foldable Fabric Scientific Research Poster Printing
Fabric posters make travel easy.
The wrinkle-resistant fabric does not crease, so it comes out of your bag with only the slightest hint that it has been folded. It will give you an excellent presentation with the same accurate colors and vivid pictures that our paper posters give you.

I was a little nervous to order a fabric version of my research presentation online, sight-unseen, but decided to take the chance. It not only arrived exactly when you said it would, but it looked fantastic! I was surprised to see that the detail was the same as a paper poster, and I'm happy to not have to carry a tube on the plane. Thanks for the great job and service--this is where I'll be printing my posters from now on.
Jenny Esswein, PhD Department of Physics Ohio State University
I just wanted to pay my compliments to you on the new fabric posters. My colleague and I just used them for a conference presentation and they were a big hit. We had so many compliments on them and many people asked us for your information. The colors and the material were great. I can't tell you what a relief it was to be able to fold them and put them in my carry on and not have to worry about being forced to check a bag or having the tube crushed in the over head compartment.
Ms. Niko Verdecias, MPH Project Director Department of Family and Social Medicine Montefiore Medical Center, New York
The poster fabric and coloring look amazing, the print is perfectly clear, and it is incredibly convenient for travel. I definitely can reuse it as well-- the fabric seems more durable.
Teresa Mulaikal Columbia University New York, NY
Just got my fabric poster and love it! This is about 1000 X better than the afternoons wasted wrestling with our huge plotter printer, paper cuts, wet ink, big tubes, etc! We'll definitely order again!
Kimberly Baxter Decker Doctoral Candidate National Institutes of Health Bethesda, MD
I have to put in a plug, too, for the foldable fabric. No matter how careful I am in my packing, I always have two carry-on bags, even after I've stuffed my purse into my computer bag. Not having to carry a poster tube as well is a miracle and well worth the extra money. Megaprint will be getting all of my business in the future - and I've already recommended you to colleagues!
Darcy Mitchell PhD Colby Sawyer College New London, NH
I received the poster. Excellent fabrics. This is a revolution in poster making. NO need to carry that big tube anymore. Thank you for this great invention.
Sarwar Hashmi NY Blood Center New York City
The fabric poster looked great, traveled well, and I plan to make a superhero cape out of it as soon as I can get away with it
Cyd Skinner Northampton Community College Bethlehem, PA
Wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with my recent poster purchase. The fabric material worked out even better than I had hoped. Cheers.
Larry Kane, PhD. Assistant Professor Dept. of Immunology University of Pittsburgh

7. Which paper for printing and binding a PhD thesis?
For important academic works such as the PhD, 80 g / m² paper or 100 g / m² paper is often used. At BachelorPrint, we use 100 g / m² paper as a standard, as it is not only more robust, but also feels better when you leaf through it. However, if you want to print and bind your dissertation double-sided, we recommend you even use 120 g / m² paper to ensure that the text does not show through.

Our Baltimore Location!
Highest Quality. PhD Posters Baltimore uses the same photo-gloss paper and HP printers as the big boys. We may be cheap, but we don't compromise on quality. Most of our customers print research posters, but we can print other types of posters as well! Examples include sports posters, maps, and photo collages.
Convenient Local Pickup. PhD Posters Baltimore offers convenient order pickup service from the Johns Hopkins Medicine campus. Posters are dropped off at 10am on weekdays. We can also ship directly to your home or event location. Click HERE to view our pickup location on a map. Additional pickup instructions and details are included in your order confirmation email.
Easy Online Ordering. Start your order and upload your poster file as a PDF or PowerPoint; pay directly online to complete your order. The whole online ordering process takes about 5 minutes. If only research was this simple!
Extended Ordering Hours. With first-hand experience conducting research, we understand that you want to put the most current data on your poster and that new data may come late in the day. If you don't make the 6:30pm ordering deadline, we accept a few rush orders each evening between 6:30pm and 9pm that will be printed that night and ready for pickup at 10am the next morning.
Quick Turnaround Time. Turnaround time is generally 10am the next day for a single poster submitted as a PDF (PowerPoint files add 1 additional day). During busy conference seasons, PDF turnaround may be two days. We print posters in the order in which they are received.
Current turnaround time for a new order. Choose "Local Pickup", and then scroll down to select the Baltimore Branch. When selected, the turnaround time will then appear below our branch name.
Formatting Tips. We offer useful and practical tips for designing your poster so that you don't have to figure it all out on your own. Please visit our "How-To" tab at the top of the page to ensure your poster is looking its best!
The most common formatting issues are uneven margins and low resolution images. To prevent uneven margins, please ensure that one dimension of your poster (either length or width) is 36" or 42".

About Baltimore Branch. The Baltimore branch of PhD Posters is owned and operated by Theresa Barberi. In 2014, Theresa was working as a Postdoc in Baltimore and discovered a lack of affordable or convenient poster printing options in the Baltimore area. Thus, she endeavored to start the Baltimore branch of PhD Posters, which opened in February 2015. Theresa continues to work in academic research during the day. As a researcher and poster presenter herself, she is well-acquainted with your needs and concerns for poster printing and pick up. If you have any questions, feel free to email her directly at email@example.com .
