Poster Printing Software Support
We run both PC and Mac workstations, and can print files from the listed programs from either platform. It's easiest to enter orders online, maximum file size is 150 mb for online orders. If your files are very large you can put them on our FTP site.
|Microsoft Power Point (all versions)||PDF's from any program|
|InDesign 1.0 through CC||Microsoft Publisher (all versions)|
|Adobe Illustrator 8 - 10 & CS1 through CC||Corel Draw 7 - X7*|
|Photoshop 5 through CC||Open Office|
|Quark XPress 4.0 - 8.0|
Note: Many programs do not support large page sizes. We get around that by scaling in our printer driver. Typically, you will want to set things up for half the size you want, i.e. set a poster up at 18x30" to get a final size of 36x60".

Word Processing and Spreadsheets:
While we can print from Word and Excel, please don't design your scientific poster in these programs! You'll find PowerPoint much easier to use. Most people tell us they can design a poster in an hour or two using one of our templates.
