Academic posters

At university, you will often find that one of your course assessments will require you to produce a poster, either individually or in a group.

AES can print your assignment posters any size up to A0 within very tight timescales, couple that with our 15% discount for university students & medical students we must be the obvious choice for student course work, scientific posters, medical posters and conference displays.


Typical academic poster sizes

A0   841mm x 1191mm

A1   594mm x 841mm

A2   420mm x 420mm


AES can print any custom page sizes or shapes from a variety of software including: Powerpoint, Word, Publisher and PDF formats



Academic & Scientific poster page setup guide

POSTER page setup with WORD

In Word no page can be greater than A3

Open WORD, select File and then Page Setup and then set the paper size to A3 then the orientation you need.  We can then blow up your page to the desired size



Open PowerPoint, select File and then Page Setup and then set the paper sizes and orientation you need




Open Publisher, select New (blank page) then File and then Page Setup, Custom Size set the paper sizes and orientation you need



What font size do I need?

Font size for an A2 poster 14pt - 18pt

Font size for an A1 poster 16pt - 24pt

Font size for an A0 poster 18pt - 32pt


Can you blow my poster up from a smaller size?

Yes AES can blow up from any given 'A' size, look at our handy scale chart to workout your font sizes


A4 to A3 = 141% enlargement

A4 to A2 = 200% enlargement

A4 to A1 = 283% enlargement

A4 to A0 = 400% enlargement



So an A3 to A1 is a 200% enlargement, the font size is doubled and so is the margin, also if you view on screen at the zoomed size (i.e. 200%) this will give you an indication of how your poster will print, pay attention to graphics and logos.




Design tips

Use a logical visual flow. Group related information. Use numbering or arrows if linked content should be read in a particular order. Avoid overcomplicating (too much information) and use margins to pad off the edge of the paper or table box to set off your text. Assessment criteria are likely to focus on features such as: Content, Structure, Visual impact & Clarity


Choose colours that complement each other. Certain colours, like yellows, are difficult to see and read. Text and background colours should complement each other, colours of backgrounds should be subtle. Choose a font type that is easy to read like Arial
