Creating Large Format Posters Using PowerPoint
You will be making just one slide (or page) in PowerPoint. One really big slide! Using Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 or greater, click on the Design tab at the top and then “Page Setup.”
Under “Slides Sized for:” choose “Custom.” In the Page Setup pop-up menu, set the page size to the same size that you want your poster to be.
Be sure to verify the poster size requirements for the meeting where your poster will be displayed. Failure to do so may result in a poster that is not printable at the size you need. The page size needs to be set before you start your poster layout.
|Finished Poster Size||Page Size in PPT||Enlargement when printed|
|36″ x 48″||36″ x 48″||100%|
|36″ x 56″||36″ x 56″||100%|
|36″ x 60″||18″ x 30″||200%|
|36″ x 72″||18″ x 36″||200%|
|48″ x 56″||48″ x 56″||100%|
|48″ x 60″||24″ x 30″||200%|
|48″ x 72″||24″ x 36″||200%|
|48″ x 84″||24″ x 42″||200%|
|48″ x 96″||24″ x 48″||200%|
Files can only be enlarged or shrunk proportionally for printing (it’s not advisable), so be sure the aspect ratio of your page size in PowerPoint matches that of the final poster size. Note: If you change the page size after creating the poster, it can create problems. Text may be hidden by inserted figures so proof the poster thoroughly. Do not allow text or pictures to hang over the edge of the poster or they will be cropped off when printed. Note that inserted images will be scaled out of proportion because of the change in page size. To resize the images, right-click on the image and select “Size and Position.” Click on the “Size” tab, if not already selected, and make sure the scale percentage is the same for height and width. (e.g., 100% height and 100% width).
