Poster check & proof

Poster check & proof

Our designers can check your conference poster for layout errors. There is a small charge for this but many of our customers appreciate someone else looking over their poster; we often see something they haven't.

We will then provide a proof for your approval, this can either be an A3 print or a PDF.

Our service includes checking the following:

  • correct logo usage. We will replace any incorrect or poor quality CUH and University
    of Cambridge logos.

  • alignments of boxes. Where possible, we will correct any misalignment.

  • image quality. We will advise you if any images appear to be low resolution
    when viewed on screen.

Please check the following yourself:

  • spelling and grammar

  • text reproduction (particularly mathematical symbols or other special characters)

  • image quality.

Please check your proof carefully and mark any amendments clearly. Further work may incur extra costs.

Please do not resubmit your file without contacting us first as we may have altered alignments and logos; repeating this on a new file will incur extra cost.

Please note:

  • we cannot amend information contained within graphs
  • we cannot guarantee the quality of your images as these are determined by the original image resolution; this is especially true if the poster is being enlarged for print, and this also applies to logos and graphs
  • we cannot guarantee the colour output will match what you see on screen; printers interpret colour differently to the screen. Colour output can therefore only be checked with a printed proof from our printer.
