Frequently asked questions.

How do you make a standout poster design?
Write out any messaging ahead of time to proofread. Then, make your poster title and important details large enough to read from a distance. Lastly, use up all the space on your canvas to make a captivating design.
What is the standard poster size?
Some of the most common poster sizes are 11” x 17”, 18” x 24”, and 24” x 36” although you can make a poster any size you’d like. Explore templates from Adobe Express starting at the size 11” x 17” or use the Resize option to enter in custom dimensions.
How do I add a bleed to my poster design?
A bleed allows color to be printed all the way to the edge of a design. A typical bleed size is 1/8” around the edge. To add a bleed to your poster, use the Resize tool and increase your poster by that size – so an 11” x 17” poster should be 11.25” x 17.25” with the bleed.
