-Take care to note the size limitation of our poster printer: we can only print posters ​36" wide at the moment, with a recommended margin of 0.5". Given the usual AAS space limitation of 44" by 44", this means that the typical ​AAS poster ​will have 35" by 43" ​of usable area. If you make your poster ​an inch shorter, you get a nicer aspect ratio of 5:6 with a poster content area that'​s ​35" by 42".+Take care to note the size limitation of our poster printer: we can only print posters ​42" wide at the moment, with a recommended margin of 0.5". Given the usual AAS space limitation of 44" by 44", this means that the maximum usable area of a AAS poster ​wil be 41" by 43". If you make your poster ​two inches ​shorter, you get a 1:1 aspect ratio with a poster content area that'​s ​41" by 41" ​(that way, you also don't have to worry about printing your poster landscape or portrait).
  
-In addition, the poster printer appears to want to have at least an inch of blank space before it starts printing any ink, so one of the 36" sides of your poster will be printed with that buffer. (If you have a blank margin, it counts toward that buffer, so if you use half-inch margins, it will appear that one side of your poster comes out with a margin of 1".) You might want to factor this into your layout. Of course, there'​s nothing stopping you from trimming the padding area off of your poster once it's printed.+In addition, the poster printer appears to want to have at least an inch of blank space before it starts printing any ink, so one of the 42" sides of your poster will be printed with that buffer.
