Please send your poster via email to at least 1 week before you need it.

  • Indicate in your email the name of the conference at which you will be presenting and the date you wish to have it printed.

*For students and faculty who wish to print a poster for a class or non-research event, the cost of printing is $5 per linear foot, $15 for a 42" x 36" poster.

Printing Guidelines

  • The standard poster size is width: 42" by height: 36"
  • Posters will be printed exactly as you send them. We do not proofread or edit your files. Therefore, please make sure your poster file is proofread and edited before you send it.
  • We prefer poster designs with lighter, less saturated background colors; they dry faster and smear less.
  • Please email your PDF poster to

  • If using Adobe software (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.), please save your final as a PDF as the correct size.
  • If using PowerPoint to design your poster, please format the poster to the exact size you want it printed. Save your final as a PDF as the correct size.
