When you want to make a poster stand, you need to know what information you want to convey. If you want to hold health socialization, then use the information related to it. You can use a simple narrative and points format. Generally, poster stands have limited space, therefore you need to optimize the use of space. It would be better if you use the information format in the form of bullet points.

The theme and tone of information you and the people you are reading need to relate to one another. Themes will affect how people perceived them. The idea of colour and design will also be clearer if you have decided on a theme for your poster stand.
3. Find Keywords From This Information
Using keywords will be very important to attract the attention of your potential customers. A keyword is a summary of several sentences that you shorten into one or two words. Creating a keyword of information will help readers and people who see your poster more quickly capture information.

Readability will also be greatly helped if the layout is clear and to the point. Make everyone can understand the message or pieces of information on it.
5. Use A Font That Is Easy to Read
