Color and Background guidelines

May, 2012

To ensure that your output in the poster is exactly the same as you intended it to be, please don't use backgrounds that aren't:


- All-black or all-white.

- Consisting of more than three colors.

- Highly transparent.

- Downloaded off the web.

(These pictures are not designed to fit the size of the poster (24*36 inches), so they tend to get distorted in the printing process)


Also, make sure that your slides are designed on PowerPoint from scratch. DO NOT design them on Photoshop or another designing program and then copy the design to PowerPoint, as that will also cause problems in the printing process.
