Preparation:  

Print each section on an 8 x 11 bond paper (18-20 font size, so it can be seen from 4 feet).
Choose a font that is easy to read, avoid unique fonts such as Bondoni or Showcard.
Times new Roman has serifs and is easy on the eyes.
Try not to vary the font size extensively.

Don’t segregate your figures and graphics put them in line with the text.

Affix each section to poster board (colored if desired) approx. 9.5 x 12.  This way your presentation can travel easily and not be damaged.
