Page Size Help

Important - Your PowerPoint page size must be proportionate to the final poster size. If you send us a "square" file, we won't stretch your poster to a "wide" page.
  • Posters larger than 56"

    If you're ordering a poster with a dimension larger than 56 inches, you'll have to use a smaller page setup. PowerPoint has a maximum page width of 56 inches. See the tutorial for step by step instructions and a table of typical pages sizes that work.

  • What sizes can I order my poster?

    Use our Poster Size Calculator to determine the sizes your poster can be printed.

  • Need your poster printed to a different specific required poster size?

    It's easiest to just use your existing file as-is and print it to the largest possible size within the required size restrictions. (Use the Poster Size Calculator to see what your options are.) However, if you must change the proportion of your PowerPoint page so it can be printed to a specific required poster size, use our Page Size Converter to help figure out what new page size to make your file.

  • Ordering Special Sizes

    If you need a size other than our set sizes, order your poster online, & choose the next size larger to what you need. Also specify what size the final poster should be in the special printing instructions box when you add it to your cart. If your file doesn't fit any specific size, we will scale it proportionately to the nearest fixed size.

  • Printing your poster the right direction (aka: Portrait or Landscape)

    We will rotate your poster so that it prints the proper orientation (Portrait or Landscape) on the paper, according to how your file was created. If you order 36" by 60" and your PowerPoint file is "wide", we will make your poster "wide" (landscape). If your PowerPoint page is "tall", we'll print your poster "tall" (portrait).
