Poster Dimensions

Poster printer paper widht is 36 inches!

One dimension of the poster needs to be 36 inches or less. That is, either length or width must be equal to or less than 36 inches.

If one of the dimensions is greater than 36 inches, the PDF will have to be scaled down.

If one of the dimension is less than 36 inches, we can either scale up to 36 inches or print as is, which will result in extra whitespace. PCS has a paper cutter you can use to trim the extra whitespace.

Please check the dimensions of your poster!

Be sure to leave sufficient margins at the edges. 0.25 inches is suggested.
