Guide to Poster Printing

Technology Services offers poster printing for faculty, staff, and students in the College of Education and Human Development for educational and administrative purposes. Our office uses the HP DesignJet T770, a full-color printer with a maximum width of 42".


Before taking advantage of this service, be make sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Only submit the final version of your poster. We do not perform edits.
  • Posters are printed on a 42" wide roll. There is no height limit.
  • Allow for 1/2" margin on all four sides.
  • Posters can be formatted as either a Power Point or PDF.
  • Dimensions are measured in inches.
  • Allow up to 3 business days for processing.


As a service to the College of Education, the first two printouts per person during the University's fiscal year will be of no charge. If an individual submits a request for more than two printouts in a fiscal year, a University Account Number must be submitted. We do not accept cash, check, credit card or money orders. Please speak to your department's business office if you are unsure of your Account Number.


The fee for a poster will be calculated at $.70 per square foot. The table below shows common poster sizes and their associated costs:
