How To Print Our Posters

Classroom

With a regular desktop printer, you can print and assemble large classroom posters.

Step 1

Open the poster PDF file on your device or computer. Make sure you have print capabilities.

The example above is available below in our graphic section, and this is the version that has a white border on a letter-sized sheet of paper. There are 4 versions:

  1. Letter sized (8.5″ x 11″)
  2. Letter sized edge to edge printing
  3. 4 letter sheets Large sized that can be taped together. It’s about 16″ x 20″
  4. 4 Sheets Large with edge to edge printing.

Step 2

Choose the right settings for your print. This is easier for the letter-sized versions. If you’re using the edge to edger versions, make sure you choose edge printing and have a printer that has this function.

Sometimes the prints will come out in the wrong direction. Look at the settings and make sure you have it set up correctly and that things match. If printing a “tiled” version (the large 4 sheets that fit together), print all 4 sheets, which will have some overlap.

Step 3

After printing a tiled large version, you can trim some of the overlap and then match the graphics carefully. Also make sure the edges are straight in line with each other.

Step 4

Once all the pages are lined up, you can use tape on the back, or the front.

We used regular magic tape and pressed it down well to disappear as much as possible.
