Submitting Your Poster for Printing

Students in the School of Engineering, Department of Art and Design, and the Geology/Biology Departments are encouraged to utilize the large format printers in their areas to alleviate some of the printing demand on the Stander printer. Print your poster early to avoid the last minute rush and to ensure you receive your poster on time.

To print:

  1. Review your poster in detail for any errors BEFORE you submit it for printing. Because of the cost of printing supplies, only one poster can be printed per student presenter.
  2. Email the final PDF of your poster to Students must provide the name of the person picking up the poster when submitting their file. Please include the name in the body of the email. Submit your poster by Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. No posters will be accepted after this date.
  3. Printed poster pick-up dates: Monday, April 20 and Tuesday, April 21, 2020, between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. at the second floor services desk of Roesch Library.
