National Mastitis Council Poster Guidelines
The poster board surface area is 4 ft. (1.2 m) high x 8 ft. (2.4 m) wide. It is not required to use the entire space (self-supporting tack board). You may use tacks (push pins) or Velcro to attach your poster to the tack board. We will have some extra tacks, but we will not supply Velcro.

Below are some basic guidelines:
Charts, figures, photographs and text should be mounted securely on the poster board by appropriate means. In general, the posters should be self-explanatory. Companies may be identified on the posters, but tabletop displays may not be used. Sales-oriented exhibits are not allowed. Educational literature may be distributed, provided it is not a “sales piece.”

Poster design suggestions:

  • Include title, author(s) and affiliation at top of poster (use lettering at least 1 inch [2.5 cm] high).
  • Keep illustrations simple.
  • Keep text and figure legends short; use large print – at least 3/8 inch (1 cm) high.
  • Illustrations must be readable at distances of 3 feet (1 m) or more.
  • Include a short introduction and summary.
  • List “take home points” on the poster.
