Yes! We can print high-quality large-format posters for ENGR faculty and staff. We use this printer and this (satin gloss) paper.


What we need:

Payment: We need some way to pay for materials and labor.  Faculty have a standard allocation of 3 posters per year at no cost.  Other units can purchase posters for $34/ea (36" x 48") or $22/ea (24" x 36").  This needs to come from unsponsored UA funds, e.g. a discretionary account or a gift account.  This will require a KFS account number!  If you don't know what account number to use, please contact your department's business office for assistance.

Here's our cost breakdown: Poster Printing Costs


Time: 1 business day. We're open M-F from 8a-5p. Please also note that we only have one printer, and we queue first-come, first-serve. If you know that lots of people are going to need posters at the same time, you might want to get ahold of us early.


Size: 36" x 48" (Arch E) or 24" x 36"(Arch D)


Format: PowerPoint (PC) or Adobe PDF


Here are some PowerPoint templates you can use for laying out your poster; this includes some high-res UA logos:

Landscape

Portrait


Send your poster file to poster@engr.arizona.edu, or create a support ticket here and upload your file.


Some other tips:

Margins: Our printer is able to print to .25" from the edge of the paper, but it can't print closer than that. Please include a .25" margin around the edges of the poster, or we'll need to shrink the poster a little before printing.


Graphics: Zoom into the poster to 100% and check out all of your graphics. Low-res graphics are super evident when they're blown up to the size of a poster. You can get some high-res images from our PowerPoint templates (Landscape -- Portrait), and you can get lots of UA logos here: https://brand.arizona.edu/


Proofing: We aren't able to proofread submissions, so please check spelling, grammar, etc. before submitting your poster. We don't have any profit margins on this service; our prices are the real costs of consumables. In other words, we can't provide free reprints if you notice a mistake after printing! Yikes!
