How do I print a scientific/clinical research poster?

I am making my first research poster to present at my school's Discovery Day. I'm excited but nervous. Do you have any advice on how to make an outstanding poster? What are some things you love to see in a poster presenting research? What are some things you hate?
My poster is a review of a particular disorder with a case presentation of a patient we saw who required an unusual surgical intervention. We have some nice radiographic images and photos, and the patient has kindly consented provided consent for us to use the photos and data from the case, as long as we protect his identity.
Also, I am a little clueless about the technical aspects of poster making: How big should it be? What is a good background color? Where can I get it printed for cheap?
