Important Notes

  • Please inform WolfTech or the main office when supplies for ECE-POSTERS3 are low.
  • A roll of paper on ECE-POSTERS3 is 36 in. wide. This means that at least one of the dimensions of your poster must be 36 in. or less.
  • Create your poster in the size that you intend to print it. PowerPoint allows you to set a page size under File -> Page Setup and any image program allows you to set the size of the picture/document you are creating before you start on it.
  • Posters can be printed in Portrait or Landscape.
  • Additional supplies are provided in the cabinet in 3029 EB2. Please notify WolfTech or the ECE Main Office if supplies are low.
  • We strongly encourage you to use a white background for your poster. If you absolutely must have a colored background, use a single color that is not heavy or dark. Nearly all programs allow you to reduce the intensity or percentage of a color before you use it. Do NOT use patterns or your poster will print very slowly.
  • Use short filenames for your files. The poster printers can sometimes have issues with files that have long filenames.
