How do I go about printing a poster?

Bring a USB key to HSC-4H21A. We have a sign up sheet to complete so we have your contact information and research account number for payment. We use glossy photo finish paper in 100 foot rolls. Our large format printer can print up to a maximum of 36" wide (depending on orientation). The printer is preset at (36” x 48”), however can be adjusted to print custom sizes.

What applications can I use to create a poster?

We can print research ‘posters’ done in PowerPoint (PC version). For MAC users, save as pdf file. Other graphic programs such as Quark Express / Illustrator / Indesign are not supported. It is important that posters be constructed to the size required for outputting. Posters should not be created in small sizes, and then blown up to full size, as quality suffers with the enlargement.
