Poster Creation Tips

  • Create your poster in the actual size you require.

  • Save your final document as a PDF.


  • Patrons are responsible for the design of their posters. This includes creation of any graphics and text formatting.

  • Creative Studio reserves the right not to print an order and patron will be notified.
