Poster File Preparation and Requirements

Before you attempt to print be sure that your poster file meets the following requirements.

1.) Your poster file must be in the PDF file format.
2.) The paper roll is only 36″ wide, so one edge of your poster must be no larger than this. Please be sure to scale your poster BEFORE attempting to print it. Failure to do so will result in a cropped poster.

Printing Directions

1.) Save your poster file on the desktop.
2.) Double click on the “HP Click” icon located on the desktop or the task bar.
3.) Drag your file to the “HP Click” window where it will give you a preview of the output. It is safe to ignore the “Page Clipping” and “Clipping in printer margins” warning messages.
4.) If you see a preview where you have a portion covered with a yellow overlay as shown below, then your poster is not meeting the correct dimensions for the paper roll. You MUST first scale your PDF to a smaller size that meets the requirements listed above.

5.) If all looks well, as show in the following screenshot, you can click on the “Print” button.
