Click on “Poster Templates” in left navigation bar.

Right Click over the link then “Save Target As” (Just clicking it won’t allow you to edit it.)

  • Save the file to a flash drive or your desktop.

  • Keep a copy for future use.

  • Modify the template with your name and preferred layout and save it to disk. This will save you valuable time with later posters.


Quick Notes for Success

  • Use PowerPoint to create the poster(Word or Publisher will not print to larger sheets)

  • Use large fonts (24-36 point) for text

  • Use very large fonts (60-90 point) for titles

  • Use borders & boxes to outline the data

  • Use lots of white space between items

  • Remember that what works on presentations won’t necessarily work on posters. (Backgrounds)


Template Design Notes

  • These are only suggestions to get your thought process started.

  • You can change the color, line size, and shape of red boxes to match your text, data, and needs.

  • The logos and black lines are part of the slide master. To edit these items, go to the view menu, slide master option.

  • The boxes help organize the information and guide the viewer’s eyes.


Creating Your Own Poster

  • Open PowerPoint

  • File – New

  • File – Page Setup

  • Set paper size to 36” x 48”(24” x 36” or 11” x 17” for smaller posters)

  • Add frames, borders or logos as needed

  • Continue with the editing


Move Your Data

  • Copy & paste items from your Word or PowerPoint documents to the new poster.

  • Items you can copy & paste:

    • Any Office item (text, charts, tables, images)

    • Items from most Windows programs, including SPSS tables & charts

    • JPEG, BMP, GIF, and TIFF formatted images

    • Scanned images from books & articles


Text Formatting Problems

  • Text copied from one Office document to another can cause formatting problems.

    • Text may carry original formatting to the poster.

    • Formatting can go strange, overriding both the original and poster formats.

  • If the text “goes strange” on the poster:

    • Delete the text box on the poster and create a new one.

    • Copy the text to the new text box.

  • If the original formatting carries over to the poster, use the format painter function to correct the problem.


Image & Colors

  • Avoid large areas of images, wide borders, or colored backgrounds to save ink.

  • Internet images are often too small to use.

  • Large colored areas often wrinkle the paper.

  • Dark images often do not print well.

  • Clip art and simple images do print well.

  • Try to blend images, borders and chart colors to create a pleasing effect.
