Info for Posters and Demonstrators
Posters can be produced as you feel appropriate for your
project. However, here are some suggestions.
Posters you may have seen around here for various research
projects have been produced at Kinko's and other printers. They are laminated
and mounted on foam core. Typically, these posters are enlarged versions
of the research flyers for that project. If you want to go this route,
there are sample flyer files on the ICS2 136/Library Mac that you may
use as guides to make your own. These samples are in Adobe Illustrator
and Quark Express.
To use the Mac in ICS2 136, you must login as ISR User.
Please see Debra Brodbeck
(ICS2 240) or YuzoKanomata
(ICS2 246) for the password.
SIZE. Posters are typically either 18 x 24 or 24
FILES. We recommend that your files be built to final
size for production at Kinko's.
Kinko's strongly prefers PDF. Be sure to embed all fonts
and images. Use CMYK colors.
If you're a PC user, you can download Kinko's
File Prep Tool (KFP) Software to keep all of your margins, formatting,
fonts and graphics intact for reliable printing. Download is free.
If you're a Mac user, give Kinko's PDF.
