Make it a Poster!

Turning a single page .pdf file into a large display poster is super simple.  It's an easy way to create anchor charts and other displays for your classroom.

You’ve just purchased the most adorable digital product and there are a couple of pages you’d like to display in your classroom.  But, no one will see them at their current 8.5 X 11 size.  What do you do?  Turn the page into a poster.  It's super easy .


I guess the easiest way is to take the file to Staples or Office Depot and have them pint it for you.  They also have online poster printing that starts at $12.99 for a 18" X 24" poster.  They have lots of options for paper types and it can even be laminated.  The finished poster will look great, but may not be so easy on our pocketbook.

Or, you can print your own poster!  Any PDF file can be printed as a poster.  First you need to start with a .pdf file.  You can convert most other file types into a .pdf file. Other file types might have a poster printing options, but I'm not familiar with them.  So, I'm going to explain how to print a poster from a .pdf file.

Step 1, print.  From the print menu you can choose the size, cut marks and see a print preview.

Step 2:  Cut.  I use a paper cutter so all the edges are straight.  Make sure you leave one edge with a white paper margin so the piece can be glued to the piece that will be beside or below.

Step 3, Putting it together.  A repositional glue stick makes moving and adjusting the placement much easier.  After I have all the pieces glued together I secure all the seams with tape (on the back).

That's it!  you now have a poster large enough to display in your classroom for everyone to see.  This is my favorite way to make anchor charts since I can't draw with a darn!  Here's one I made for a lesson on subjects and predicates.
