Postersession Facebook Page
We’ve had a Facebook page for postersession.com for a long time now, but thanks to Noel in our graphic design department, it has a new look!
We are deep into poster production for the spring season! Keep ’em coming and we’ll get it done for you.
As always, our promise is that files here by noon Eastern time will ship the same day. Our site has free poster templates for download, so all you need to do is copy and paste your words, photos, and charts into the template and your poster is ready for us to print!
Our designers give your research poster a look-over to be sure it is in good shape too.
We’ve printed nearly 100,000 research posters since 1994. Let us print one, or a few, for you!
48″ Fabric Poster
Sometimes you really want a foldable fabric research poster in a large size. We are one of the few companies that can print wider than 42″.
We do a lot of 48″ width fabric research posters, and if needed we can go up to 54″ (53″ full bleed) width.
At 48″ width you still get accurate colors, sharp type, and a research poster that can be folded and put in your carry-on luggage. Often that will save you baggage fees.
And, of course, we still ship your poster the same day if we have the file by noon. You can enter your order online– it’s fast, easy, and secure. Most people tell us that’s the easiest way to get us everything we need to get your poster printed, and it only takes a minute or two.
Projex Board Poster
We’ve changed our economy trifold poster boards a bit. From now on, we will print them on ProjexBoard cardboard blanks. Since the cardboard blanks come to us pre-cut and scored, they fold cleanly and give a more professional presentation.
Our standard tri-folds, which have an overlaminate, are still available. The Projex Boards are only available in 36×48 size. They fold into a 24×36 size for shipping, and ground shipping will be free on them!
These economy tri-fold posters are perfect for any presentation where your poster needs to sit on a table instead of being hung on a wall divider. Think of them for science fair posters, smaller in-house meetings, etc.
Call us when you need an economy, self standing research poster!
Here’s a view of the future, research posters being displayed on computer monitors instead of paper posters on dividers.
No question, it’s cool to be able to flip a switch and have a new poster displayed. And, you pay for the monitor once, and a paper research poster every time.
I would argue that this kind of setup has a few disadvantages too:
- It’s too small. The smallest poster we usually print is 3×4 feet, these are about half that size. Not only are they going to be hard to read, but the author can only have one person to talk to at a time.
- What can we say but that a paper poster always works! I wonder what the reliability of the system is, and what happens to the presenter whose monitor isn’t working.
- Presenters tell us that, given the expense of these setups, there are not that many available at a conference. They are only able to be in front of their research poster for 20 minutes or a half hour. That doesn’t give people much opportunity to talk to them, and it just about completely removes the ability to browse the posters.
So, we hear about conferences presenting research posters this way. It’s new, and the early adopters are giving it a try. The old fashioned folks are worried that a wonderful way of spreading information is being dumbed down.
Time will tell!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers, suppliers and friends for another successful year. Happy Holidays!
If you need a poster for a conference in the new year, we hope you’ll think of us.
Economy Tri-Fold Poster
This is a typical economy trifold poster. They were getting ready to package it the other day, and I thought it deserved a mention.
This is perfect poster for a science fair. It gives a beautiful presentation and comes at the right price- only $84 plus the shipping.
We direct print these right on the foam core, which is how we get the cost so low. We score them for folding, and ship them between sheets of cardboard.
We have free PowerPoint poster templates on our website. Download the template, copy and paste your information into it, and then order your poster online.
