Effective Saturday, March 14, OSU will move to a higher level of response that continues the essential operations of the university, but seeks to reduce the frequency of interactions among students, faculty, staff and visitors throughout all university campuses, centers, facilities and operations. Our focus is on continued university operations and social distancing.
Large format printing is available for college, research unit, and departmentally sanctioned activities only. Supplies for these printers are quite expensive - please do not submit trivial requests. Please also be aware of the free services provided by OSU Student Multimedia, which include poster printing and laminating among others.
Creating a poster in PowerPoint is similar to creating a single slide; just think of it as one very big slide. The only difference is that the page-set up must be set to a custom size. This should be done before the poster is actually created.
To set up a poster:
NOTE: Because the poster is sized larger than a standard paper size, a page set-up error window may appear explaining that the current page size you selected exceeds the printable area of paper in the printer. Select OK. Do Not Select Fix - this will change your poster size to a standard paper size. Once the page set-up is complete, the poster can be created as though you are creating one large poster. Do not create separate slides! Following are a few tips and tricks for creating posters to avoid problems.
