The poster author is responsible for printing their own poster. Each poster should be no larger than A0 size and should be in portrait orientation (840 mm wide by 1190 mm high). We suggest you use a company such as Warehouse Stationary who do A0 size printing while you wait. The cost of printing an A0 poster on a heavy paper stock (160gsm to 200gsm) is approximately $25 - $40.
Tips for preparing your poster
Successful posters get the key messages across succinctly and clearly. A good poster has a main theme, presents useful information and stimulates discussion. It usually includes pictures or graphs. If you need thought starters, here are website links about poster design that you may find useful:
