Before you Print:

  1. Double check for spelling and grammar mistakes (ask a friend - a new set of eyes is more likely to catch errors).
  2. Make sure your poster is sized correctly and your images are not pixelated.
  3. Give yourself enough time to have your poster printed (and reprinted if you find a mistake). Don't wait until the last minute!
