Poster Tips

Tips for Using Large-Format Poster Template

  • Create your poster presentation on blank power point slides first, making sure to label your slides with the appropriate headings and subheadings.
  • Use bullets to minimize the amount of text: be brief and to the point!
  • Edit the power point slides.
  • Download sample template and change headings and subheadings to match yours.
  • Cut text boxes from blank power point slides and paste under appropriate headings/subheadings in the large template.
  • You can change the text box size by clicking on it and dragging to your desired size.
  • Use the following standard text sizes for the appropriate sections:
    1. Title: 80
    2. Author(s): 60
    3. University of Florida: 54
    4. Headings: 60
    5. Subheadings: 48
    6. Main text: 30-34; no less than 28
    7. Graphic captions: no less than 16
  • Double-check the following before printing:
    1. Are all of your font types the same?
    2. Are all of your text sizes consistent for each heading, subheading and text level?
    3. Are all of your bullets/numbering the same size/style?
    4. Are your heading boxes properly aligned?
    5. Are your figures/tables large enough to be readable but not so large that they overwhelm the text?
      1. Place the blinking cursor on or near your figure/table. Go up to the “zoom” box and select 100%. If you can’t read the axes captions or the text inside your figures/tables at this size, then you need to make them larger.

Tips for using an E-Poster

  • Create your eposter presentation on a blank power point slide, making sure to label your slides with the appropriate headings and subheadings. Minimize the amount of text: be brief and to the point! You’ll need to make your text font larger so the audience can read it. Bigger text = less text.
