Printing Posters!

I just learned how to print a PDF poster-sized. You guys. This is life changing.

Can you imagine the possibilities?!

Okay, so the first thing I thought of enlarging was my Common Core cheat sheets. My teams use these in planning almost daily, and I've had other teachers tell me before that they turned them into posters and LOVED having big versions of them. I had no idea how on Earth they did that, but I was super stoked for them.

Well... NOW I KNOW! And of course I'm going to share the love with you:

Now, I am on a MacBook, so if you have a PC it may look a smidge different on your end, but it should be very very similar.

Step 1 - Download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader. It's totally free!

Step 2 - Open Adobe Reader and go to File > Open, and select the PDF you want to open.

Step 3 - With your PDF open, go to File > Print, and select "Poster" under Page Sizing & Handling. Select which page/pages you want to print poster sized.

Step 4 - Adjust the scale percentage by adding a little at a time (I added increments of 10%) until you get the desired size that you want in the preview window. I had to click on the preview shot every time I adjusted my percentage for the image to update, not sure if that is just a quirk with my computer or not, but you may have to do the same.

Step 5 - Click print! Each page will come out, then you just cut them, piece them together, and... voila! A poster!



Are you dreaming of all the things you can make giant sized now? I know, me too.

If you are a K-2 teacher and you want a closer look at the Common Core cheat sheets, just click the TpT button at the tippy top of the page and you'll find them in the Common Core category.

Happy poster printing!
