Previous  Top  Next

Click2Poster makes poster creation easy (Windows XP, 2000, 2003 only).

1.   Print your document to Click2Poster  
2.   Choose the Category and Layout size of your sign.  
3.   Click Settings on the Menu bar, and the Settings dialog appears. Mark check boxes for instructions that you want printed along with your sign. Press OK to save changes.  
·Print Assembly Instructions - Click2Poster prints an instruction sheet with details to piece together your sign.  
·Print Poster edge marks - prints a small cross clip0082 to show you where the absolute edge of the poster is located.  
·Print page cut marks - prints a dotted line clip0081 in the corners of your poster so you know exactly where to cut the poster.  
·Print Poster assembly number - prints a tile number or x, y coordinates to help you piece your sign together in the correct order.  
·Overlap: - type in or use the arrows to define how much of an overlap you would like printed. Measured by inches. Overlap provides you with extra cutting room so you can use scissors or a trimmer to make the poster and your cuts do not have to be perfect.  
4.Hit print from Click2Poster to print to your printer.  
5.Once you've printed your poster you will have a stack of paper. Click2Poster has been designed so that you should be able to take the stack and lay the pages out from left-to-right and then top-to-bottom, the same way that you read a book.  
6.   We suggest that you trim off the excess white space. The white space is because of the non-printable area of most printers. Once you trim off the white space, you can line up each page with its previous page and tape it together. Here are some options for fastening the pages together:  
·Glue onto poster board  
·Staple directly to a wall or bulletin board  
·Spray on Adhesive -  

Trimming Hints:
We recommend using a trimmer or trim ruler to cut pages. You do not have to trim every side of every page because you can overlap the pages. Trim off the nonprintable area from the edge of the paper. This is usually 1/4 inch or 7 millimeters. The pages are printed so that there is some overlap. This overlap helps you line up the pages. By default, there is a one inch overlap for each poster page. The non-printable area takes up some of that one inch overlap, and should be trimmed off. If you don't want any overlap, trim off exactly one inch from the left side of each page (except the pages in the first column), and one inch from the top (except the pages on the first row).
