PRINTING SCIENTIFIC POSTERS
03.04.2016 - by Jim Moore
For several years, Educational Resources has been the ‘go to’ place on campus for scientific poster printing. The high resolution, large format Epson printer creates striking, full-color posters up to 44 inches in width. To reduce the likelihood that colors will fade over time, we use fade and water resistant inks. So, what’s new about posters that warrant a blog post? Well, read on.
How about some tips for creating better scientific posters?
In our annual survey sent to our clients to identify how we can improve our services, one client this year asked why we don’t provide advice and tips for making better scientific posters. An excellent suggestion.
– So, on the SERVICES PAGE, we have included both a summary of our thoughts about making a great scientific poster (HELP), and specifications (SPECS) that will help walk you through the process. If you have questions or need help, please contact us.
How can I avoid having to carry ‘the tube’?
Clearly, one of the drawbacks of making a poster presentation at a scientific meeting is having to carry a 4-foot long cardboard tube containing your poster. We’ve heard lots of horror stories about these, and have experienced many of the same frustrations ourselves. There are not many things worse than arriving at your destination and realizing that the tube is still on the plane or sitting someplace in a distant airport.
So, how to address this problem? We now print scientific posters on fabric. Same size, same quality of print, and easier to carry. Just gently fold your poster, insert it into the thin, protective cardboard box that we can provide, and pack it either in a carry-on bag with your laptop. This way, it is with you all of the time, is easier to carry and set up, and, you’re now living the tube-free life!
