Poster Printing

Poster Printing

LS IT offers poster printing on a recharge basis. This service is only available to affiliates of the College of Letters and Science.


  • The cost is $33 per poster.
  • Posters are printed poster paper that is 42 inches wide.
  • For most posters, the short dimension will be 42 inches, and the long dimension will be scaled accordingly.
    • While we can print smaller sizes, our paper is 42-inches wide, so you are responsible for cutting for smaller dimensions.
  • Please submit posters for printing at least one full business day in advance of when you need them.
  • Posters are printed first-come, first-served in the order that we receive ALL of the information needed for the print, including:
    • a printable poster file,
    • an account to charge for the print, and
    • approval from someone with purchasing authority on the provided account.
  • We do not reserve time slots for printing.
  • We accept PDF and Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) files.
  • Please use a white background for your poster as much as possible - using color will quickly use up our ink resources.
  • Posters can be picked up at the LS IT drop-in locations in 2235 Social Sciences & Humanities, 267 Cousteau Place, or 2203 Earth and Physical Sciences
  • We do not provide poster tubes (we roll it up with a rubber band).
