Academic Posters

Printing tips

  • Know the dimensions of your poster.  The exact dimensions are needed when printing your poster.
  • Save the original file type.  Save your poster in the file format you designed the poster in, for example, if you use PowerPoint, save the file as a PowerPoint file (.pptx).  This original file format is required to edit the poster.
  • Save a PNG copy of your poster.  Printing the PNG copy is the most reliable method and allows you to see how the poster looks before printing.
  • Consult library staff before printing.  When using the wide format printer for the first time, please consult library staff for guidance when printing. See "Printing Instructions" below.
