Conference posters may be printed at no cost for UNF faculty members who are first author on a paper or poster session that takes place off campus. There is a limit of one poster per conference. The faculty member simply needs to submit a copy of their acceptance letter/email when making an appointment for printing. Other printing may be done at a cost of $5 per linear foot.
Acceptable file formats include PDF, PowerPoint, JPG, or Photoshop. PowerPoint is a good authoring environment for posters; when setting up your poster, make it half of the actual print size; ie , for a 42" x 56" printed poster, set up as 21" x 28".
Visit our poster gallery to find a variety of PPT files set up for poster development. CIRT staff are also available to assist with poster design by appointment. Please call x. 3927 with questions or to set up an appointment. The Office of Undergraduate Research offers a comprehensive guide to poster development here:http://www.unf.edu/honors-scholars/research/poster/Poster_Message.aspx
Other posters and/or large format jobs
for research or instructional purposes may be printed at a cost of $5
per linear foot. Faculty will receive an invoice for prints which may be
paid at the cashier's office with personal funds, or by budget transfer
through their department. Faculty should make an appointment for
poster printing 2 - 3 days before the print is needed. Large batches (>6) of student research
posters may be printed through the Office of Undergraduate Research.
Photos and Resolution
For section headings (e.g., Introduction), use bold, font size of about
18 pt - 21 pt (keep in mind the final printed poster will be 200% larger, so
this will be 36 pt - 42 pt). For supporting text (e.g., text within each
section & figure captions), use font sizes of about 12 pt - 14 pt (also
keep in mind this will be 24 pt -28 pt on the final printed poster). In
general, use font sizes proportional to importance:
Largest font size- Title
Next largest font size - Section headings
Medium font size - Supporting material
Smallest font size - Details and captions
