* You will need to set the page size in two locations within your application. For instance, in Word you need to set the page size under File->Page Setup. Then, when you print the posterCheap Poster Printing Services | SMART TIPS. Read more ... » you will need to set the Paper Size under the printer Properties. You will need to set up a custom size in both locations…
* When setting the page size, set it to 36” by however long you need it to be, even if your poster is less than 36” on all sides.
* The paper for this printer comes on a roll that is 36” wide. However, the printer cannot print close to the edges, so you must leave about 1.2” of space around every side. This means the maximum size of one side of the poster image must be equal to or less than 33.6”. In other words, don’t use the whole 36” page. Always leave a bit more than a 1” border around your entire poster.
* Many programs have a built-in “ruler” feature (typically under the “View” menu) that allows you to check the margins more easily.
* DO NOT PRINT BACKGROUND COLORS! Ink for this printer is very expensive.
* Every application has its own quirks and issues. Two that seem to work well are PowerPoint and Adobe Reader/Distiller.
* Use the Preview feature to make sure it looks right – it’s a great way to tell if you got the margins and page size correct!

Send your poster to the printer at least ONE FULL DAY in advance, preferably more. Leave yourself some extra time in case there’s a problem and you need to reprint.
* If you are doing a lot of printing, please notify Adam Nave. If you have a class printing posters, see Adam well in advance to schedule student printing. Please give as much notice as possible!
* Save yourself a huge headache and proofread thoroughly. Try printing a smaller test version on a regular printer and see if there are any obvious problems.
* If your poster prints and it’s only 8.5” x 11”, you probably missed a page size setting.
* If the poster comes out on multiple sheets, your poster size was too big. Remember to leave a greater than 1 inch border around the entire poster.
