Saving Your Poster There are simple steps to develop a perfect poster. Following the procedures outlined will help avoid mistakes and save time and frustration. 1. Create your poster Use the attached templates to create the poster. Microsoft Word is not a very good layout program and is not recommended. 2. Save your poster in 2 formats: JPEG and PDF 3. To Convert your poster to a PDF format: In PowerPoint: Office > Save As> PDF 4. To Convert your poster to a JPEG format: In PowerPoint: Office > Save As> Other Formats> JPEG (drop down menu) 5. Save your poster using a recognized naming convention Use your last name and first initial plus a version (For example: “SmithM_poster-v001”) 6. Poster to be submitted via email by mentor in both formats – PDF and JPEG 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 11
Template Choices There are several templates from which to chose. You may also create your own. However, try to make your new template conform to the same standards as the ones shown here. The placeholder picture on the clear template should be replaced with your own graphics and text. Templates are available at: http://new2nasa.wikispaces.com/Poster+Presentation 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 12
Template Size 1.All available templates have a file size of: 32” X 42.” 2.Working area: Allowing for a 1” bleed strip that will be trimmed off on all four sides, the final size of your poster will be: 30” X 40” 3.Content area: This is the 28” X 38” safe area to place your content; don’t put text or graphics too close to the edge. 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 13 32” (Narrow Dimension of Sheet) 42” (Wide Dimension of Sheet)
Working Area The working area is the entire file as defined by the crop marks. This is the size your poster will be - after trimming. Don’t go beyond the dashed red line or you’ll lose part of your text and/or graphics. You may intentionally want bleed. In that case, it is OK. 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 14 30” (Narrow Dimension) 40” (Wide Dimension) Crop Marks Proper Bleed Part of the blue sky will be chopped off -- to the left of the red dashed line. This is OK; the photo will look fine. Improper Bleed The tail of the helicopter will be chopped off and will cause it to crash - not to mention what it will do to your poster.
Content Area 1.The content area is where you place all of your text, photos, graphics, logos, etc. 2.It is important to stay inside the content area or you may have your data cut off. Ouch! 3.The font should be easy to read and not too small. (10 pt. or larger) 4.Remember that low resolution images print as low resolution, so try to use the best ones you have. Printed size at 72 dpi should be fine. 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 15 28” (Narrow Dimension) 38” (Wide Dimension) Bad Positioning This pilot has his face crammed against the edge of the trimmed poster. He crossed the line and it shows. Good Positioning She didn’t cross the line. Notice the nice black edge to the right and below the photo. Unless you purposely want to bleed your photo off the edge, this is much better.
A Successful Poster Here are a few additional things to consider: Read and follow the instructions. Think and plan ahead. Use a clean, simple design and font. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Ask questions. Listen to the answers. Proof your work. Proof it again. Finish early. We are proud to publish your work! 4/30/2015 www.nasa.gov 16
