These policies and guidelines have been developed for ASE/EM faculty members who want to print and display research posters that were not developed for our graduate recruiting or external advisory committee events.

Guidelines for posters that are being developed by graduate students for departmental events can be found here.

Printing & Hanging

The UT Sign Shop can print posters and takes UT account numbers as payment. The department will not cover the cost of posters printed for research purposes unless the posters are being developed for departmental events. The UT Sign Shop can also arrange to install the poster for you as well, but will charge a fee.

Poster Frames

If you need to have something custom framed, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s do custom framing at a reasonable cost.

General Research Poster Design Guidelines

ASE/EM Identities (Logos)

Please be sure to follow the visual guidelines when using the official ASE/EM identities.


The Cockrell School of Engineering follows The University of Texas at Austin's font recommendations.

Benton Sans/Benton Sans Condensed is the preferred primary font. GT Sectra is a secondary font. Both typefaces are available worldwide in PC and Apple formats. Arial is also acceptable for posters.


It’s okay to have a variety of colors in the posters. For suggestions on colors to use in sidebars, charts, graphs, follow UT’s official color palette here
