Creating Your Poster
We strongly encourage you to use Adobe Illustrator (.AI) to create your poster. We also accept PowerPoint, PDF, and Photoshop documents. The Duderstadt Center provides templates for Adobe Illustrator available here.
Poster printing is available on a first come first serve basis when we are open. During breaks poster printing is available by appointment (email@example.com).
You are responsible for proof-reading the content of your poster. When you come to print we will send the file to the printer and give you and opportunity to look it over before printing. The printing process may take 15 minutes or longer depending on file and poster size. This excludes any file changes/corrections that may be necessary prior to printing. Please allow for extra time.
