Poster Printing at JU
Good news: we now have a poster printer at JU Duplicating!
Class Poster Printing
Faculty who register their entire class for a poster session can submit a flashstick for printing (of the entire class’s posters). This process will be organized by the Symposium Chair (Dr. Jeff Wight) via email.
We recommend that faculty have students submit their final posters on their class Blackboard site. Then the faculty can simply download all final posters from Blackboard (to the flashstick). Dr. Wight will then send a student worker to pick up the flashstick (for printing).
When printing is complete, each student will pick up their poster from JU Duplication (at Founders Hall) and pay cash for the poster.
Printing for Individuals
Individuals (presenters not in a class poster session) can submit their poster for printing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in either ppt format or pdf format.
A large volume of posters will need to be printed for the JU Symposium. Posters that are submitted by Thursday, March 16th are “guaranteed” to be printed on time for the Symposium.
This date was chosen so that poster printing could begin on Friday, March 17. JU Duplicating is closed over spring break. Printing will resume on the Monday after spring break.
We cannot guarantee that posters submitted after Thursday, March 16, will be printed on time for the JU Symposium.
For individuals who submit their poster by the deadline (Thursday, 3/16), posters can be picked up at the JU Duplicating (located at Founders) the week before the Symposium on Thursday, March 30, or Friday, March 31.
Duplicating has estimated that poster cost will be $10-12. Rigid backing will be available for purchase for approximately $4.
At this point, Duplicating is only able to accept cash payments only.
We have acquired a 36" printer. Therefore, 36" paper will be purchased. For the Symposium, we will post templates with the following dimensions: 36" (width) by 24" (height).
This “medium” size poster will work well for the symposium because it will sit well on an easel (with backing).
For scientific conferences, Duplicating will be able to print larger poster sizes, such as 48" by 36" (landscape) and 36" by 48" (portrait).
You may download a poster template with dimensions of 36" by 24". Typically, it is quite easy to change the dimensions of a poster in PowerPoint (to 36" by 48").
