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: $5.00/Linear Foot
  • Glossy Paper: $15.00/Linear Foot
  • All Glossy prints come with a free draft copy on plain paper when submitted 24 hours in advance.

Delivery

  • Your poster will need to be submitted to us at least 24 business hours before you need it. We will not provide any rush service.
  • We only do printing from 8:00AM to 5:00PM Monday through Friday. Any posters brought after that time will not be available for pick-up until the following day.
  • No poster will be delivered until payment is remitted first.
