Poster Printing

Full color posters can be produced for conferences, class projects, and other presentations. Posters will be printed using the HP DesignJet. Posters (printed with the DesignJet) can be made in a wide variety of layouts.

For example: If an electronic document was originally created for a normal 8 ½" X 11" printout, with the default 42" paper in the DesignJet, this would translate to a poster that is 32.46" X 42" OR 42" X 54" in portrait or landscape. Presently, electronic formats can be accepted in Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator, and standard PDF by e-mail, 3 ½" floppy, or CD. If you have the file in another format, such as PowerPoint, in most cases the staff can convert this file for you to PDF. There is a sample poster outside the Telecommunications Office in the Academic Center and several in the Print Shop.

Because of the variety of layouts that are possible, it is important to meet with the Print Shop staff by calling x4080 to confirm the layout selection. There is a charge back for each color poster of $1.25 per square foot. To insure a successful project, allow 3 to 5 days for your poster to be made.
