Tips on Preparing and Presenting a Poster

Quick Tips

  • Pictures are better than text. The poster is meant to be a visual aid to guide your presentation.
  • If you have a lot to say, use bullets and schematics instead of full sentences.
  • Keep font size big and font simple.
  • Don’t try to be too cute. This is a professional presentation of your research. Make everything as clear as possible.

Note that a poster larger than 36 X 36 must be oriented vertically for Research Day!

When you are ready to print

To have URECA pay for your poster printing, send a 36 X 36 poster in pdf format (print to pdf from PowerPoint) to copies@nullwfu.edu with the subject line “Poster to print for Fall 2022 Research Day“. Don’t wait until the last minute to print your poster; you should plan to have it printed early in the week. 

Deadline for submitting your poster for printing is Wednesday, September 28th at noon. Posters must be picked up from the Copy Center by 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 6th.
