CNSM Poster Printing

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics offers poster printing for students and faculty who need posters for conferences, meetings, or presentations. This is a supplemental service provided by the Dean’s Office and not a full time print shop.

Since it takes up to 30 minutes for a single poster to print, multiple requests for conferences can become extremely time consuming. Therefore, due to the increased number of printing requests and to better meet the needs of those needing a poster printed, all requests must be made in writing using the form below two weeks prior to needing poster.

Please keep these important guidelines in mind when making your request:

  • The submitter is responsible for making sure the poster is formatted to the needed size and that all graphics are scaled appropriately.
    • Projecting the poster on a large screen or wall to insure that all content is sized correctly is recommended.
    • Please verify poster size after saving the file in the desired format since the poster size can be altered during the conversion process.
  • The paper used in the poster printer is 42″ wide.
    • Printer automatically adds 1″ blank space margins on all edges.
    • The submitter is responsible for trimming excess borders from poster.
  • Preferred file formats are PowerPoint (ppt), JPEG, or PDF. Google Slides will not be accepted.
  • Posters must be approved by the faculty advisor prior to submission. Advisor should submit poster or provide email verification of approval.
  • Submit posters to Cost and submission deadline will be sent to the email address provided in request.
  • Poster will be ready for pick up on the 5th business day after submission. 
    • Submitter will be notified via email when poster is ready.
