Trifold poster board 36” x 48” for Table Tops will be provided by the participant. The boards are available in the University Bookstore.

Poster content can be printed in sections, using a standard printer and attached to the trifold paper board or as a single printed display to be attached to the board. Wide-format printers are available in some departments capable of printing ANSI E (34" x 44"). If using this option, please remember that room should be left in the e-file for margins. It is recommended that only white background be used to avoid excessive use of inks. An example poster template is available here (PPT file) Only the 44x34 inch (landscape) template would be appropriate for the poster board used for 9th Annual Student Research Day.

If you choose to use a wide-format poster printing facility on campus, please do not delay in getting your posters printed and be aware that some facilities may have restrictions as to time and number of print jobs that can be run.

Posters do not have to occupy the full space of the poster board, but can not exceed 36" x 48".

Tables for exhibiting the poster boards will be provided.
