Sometimes a conference will ask you to bring a free standing poster instead of giving you a board to mount it on. We can make a tri-fold poster, but what if you already have a poster, or are a graduate student on a budget?
What we are showing to the right is a regular 48×36 poster attached to a 48×36″ cardboard display that you can buy in most office supply stores for $10-12. The carboard display folds to 24×36 for transport, and the poster can be rolled and put in a tube.
Generally you’ll want to have the poster laminated with plastic so it will sit smoothly on the cardboard display, although if you are on a buget a paper poster will work.
Binder clips on the four corners and in the top center complete the display. It takes a minute to set up, and gives a very nice presentation.
