Print a miniature version of your poster on 8.5''x11'' paper. Choose ýFit to sizeý
under the print command, and choose letter-sized paper. If your text is too small to
read on the miniature version (from 12 inches), it will be too small to read on the final
poster. Same is true to pictures and figures ý the graphical elements of your poster
should be sharp and clear on the miniature printout. The miniature printout can also
serve as a handout to provide during the poster session.
