Poster printing services are available in the BHSI (via our HP Designjet 4000ps large format printer) for the convenience of BHSI members, collaborators, and their students.
Paper: Our printer’s maximum paper width is 42” wide. It prints from a roll so there is no limit to the length. We generally have medium- and heavy-weight bond and glossy paper in widths of 36” and 42” in stock. (Previous poster sizes have been 48×42, 42×42, 42×36, 36×32.)
Cost: $35.00 charged to a UGA account. This charge covers the cost of the final (high quality) print, as well as the cost of one additional print should a reprint be required due to unforeseen issues. The cost is the same for color or black/white printing as well as any type of paper, including glossy.
Files: Powerpoint files are recommended, but PDF and JPEG, are accepted. We may be able to print others, but be sure to include any fonts or support files if we need to run your files from their native applications. We use Microsoft Office 2016.
For rasterized images (JPEG, TIF and Photoshop), your resolution at output size should be at least 150 dpi. Here are some other Helpful Hints.
Enlarging existing files: In some cases, we can enlarge files without losing much, if any image quality, although rasterized images tend to lose quality. Submit your file and we’ll check it or run a test print.
Turnaround time: Our printing services are rather limited due our very small staff. All printing is handled by a student worker who only works from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Therefore, arrangements for poster printing must be made at least 48-hours in advance. Please understand that we may NOT be able to accommodate urgent, last minute requests. Thank you for your patience.
