What You Should Bring to Biomedical Communications if We are Doing the Design and Layout
Try to allow about 2 weeks to produce the final poster. Many of your colleagues are presenting at the same meeting or at conferences taking place at approximately the same time. Priority is based on the order a poster session is given to us in its entirety. Rush surcharges will be imposed if a poster session requires evening or weekend work. Try to submit all the material at once and with editing completed BEFORE you give us the material.
Provide text in Microsoft Word.
Any graphics must be in the following file formats, which we will extract/convert to formats, which can be placed into the poster document:
We can also scan your photos, graphs, diagrams and logos, as well as, import existing files into the poster document.
If special logos are required, make sure they are NOT taken from the web since that resolution will be too low for printed posters (images from the Web are almost always unsuitable for printing as the resolutions are too small). Also please be aware that it is illegal to download images from websites without prior, written permission.
In lieu of files, which might be too low in resolution, you may submit a hard copy, which we will scan.
You may present us with a preferred layout but that may not be possible to be followed exactly because of other considerations.
After we do the initial layout, we will present you with a color proof for review and to mark up for any final corrections and/or changes. We will do those while you’re here, or, if corrections are more extensive, ask you to review a second proof later. If getting here is inconvenient, we CAN provide you with an Acrobat PDF file proof, but indicating corrections from an electronic document can be more time consuming.
Prior to final printing of the large poster, we will need your signature on the color proof indicating that you have carefully proofed the material and have given your approval to go to print.
We prefer to allow 2-3 days for final printing of the large poster, and we have a backup printer to assure that all deadlines are met. We supply a tube in which to carry your poster to the presentation site and, for a slight extra charge will provide a CD containing all the final material collected and a PDF file of the poster.
