Dibner Library Poster Printing Full Guidelines

The library offers large format printing of school-related materials such as research posters.


$7/square ft


The width of the printer is 36". We can print up to any size x 36".

Follow these guidelines to have a poster printed:

  • Submit your file in PDF
  • Allow for a three day turn-around time.
  • Make sure your file is of adequate resolution and size to make a quality print (printing size must be set before you start your design!).
  • Make sure you have copyright clearance.  You are responsible for any copyright violations.

Please use the Poster Printing Form



Before You Print

  1. Double check for spelling and grammar mistakes (ask a friend - a new set of eyes is more likely to catch errors).
  2. Make sure your poster is sized correctly and your images are not pixelated.
  3. Give yourself enough time to have your poster printed (and reprinted if you find a mistake). Don't wait until the last minute!
