About posters:
  • Poster boards are 4 feet high and 5 feet wide. An example can be seen here.
  • As a suggestion, font size should be no less than 14-pt for paragraph text and 18-pt for sub-titles. Thirty-six point text or larger is ideal for the poster title. Sans serif fonts are best for paragraph body texts. It is ideal to make posters readable from a distance.
  • Examples of poster layouts can be found here.
