Right now the only allowed paper sizes in tikzposter are a0paper, a1paper, or a2paper. Is there a way to manually set the size of the poster in inches or other units?

    Did you try geometry package?

The tikzposter class loads geometry, so you can use its syntax to specify different paper sizes:




enter image description here

10.2cm is 4in and 7.6cm is 3in


This is not enough. tikzposter uses \TP@visibletextwidth and \TP@visibletextheight to compute things like column widths etc., and it's computed from the default page size by the class. So, after you set the paper height and width you also have to say

  • Finally! I could not figure out how to stop the columns from running outside the page until finding your answer.

  • Where do I need to put this in the document? I get tons of errors when trying to add it after the geometry command. Commented Apr 2, 2022 at 10:42
  • It works for me right after the \geometry command. Can you post a MWE and the errors you get?
