Poster printing is now a cost center! (Ask your admin about how this might impact you.)

Plain paper posters are $8/linear foot and glossy posters are $11/linear foot in the longest dimension. 

All payments need to be made on pick up in Bausch and Lomb Hall room 470. We DO NOT accept credit cards. Payment may be made with cash, check, or 312 requisition.

The BCC offers the service of large format poster printing for the Physics department and U of R in general. There are specific requirements that need to be followed for a smooth poster printing experience.

Technical Requirements

  • All posters must have one dimension that is less than or equal to 36". The other dimension can be of any length.
  • When creating your posters you will need to change the document page size to the physical dimension it will be printed to.
    • For example, most documents are 8.5" x 11". Instead, you'll want to change the page size to be 36" x 48" (a common poster size).
    • If you do not change the document size, pleasing scaling effects cannot be guaranteed when printed.
  • All graphics used in a poster need to be of a scalable vector type (EPS, PDF) or a high-resolution bitmap (TIFF, JPEG, etc) or else there is a risk of blurry or pixelated output.
  • Accepted file formats for a poster are Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx format) or Adobe PDF.

Pricing

Price is based entirely on length and paper type.

  • Plain Paper: $8.00/Linear Foot
  • Glossy Paper: $11.00/Linear Foot
  • All Glossy prints come with a free draft copy on plain paper when submitted 24 hours in advance.
