Poster Printing at the School of Health Sciences: Home

Poster Policy

  • Posters will be printed during Librarian Office hours Monday through Thursday

  • Only Emory & Henry faculty, staff, and students may request posters

  • The poster must be in PDF (preferred) or PowerPoint format

  • When creating a poster slide using PowerPoint, the slide MUST be set up at the actual size that you will have printed or half-size (21”x36” for a 42”x72” poster)

  • We are not responsible for editing or formatting posters

  • You will receive an email when your poster is ready (usually 2 business days)

  • We reserve the right to refuse printing to anyone not meeting these guidelines


Helpful Hints on Setting up Your Poster

  • We print on 44" wide media rolls. Either the width OR length of your poster may exceed 44", but not both dimensions

  • We will not print any document smaller than 12"x18" 

  • Make sure you have a small margin (at least 0.5") on all sides of your poster 

  • Make sure your font is large enough for viewing - at least 20pt.

  • Make sure your font is simple.  Simple serif fonts such as “Times New Roman” are easier to read than sans serif fonts such as “Geneva.”
