For best results, print your research poster through University Print Services. This is UB's preferred, on-campus vendor with lower costs than outside vendors and an experienced staff to help you.

This template is designed only for digital display applications, such as on a smart TV.  University Print Services cannot print this version of the poster template.

Template Accessibility

Each template file has two poster versions, one that is “accessible” and another that is “optimally accessible.” While both versions are accessible, the “optimally accessible” version relies on patterns rather than color to visually differentiate the regions within the charts and graphs, which is better for certain types of color blindness.
