Magill Library offers a walk-up poster printing service during the following hours:
|Monday – Friday||8:15 am – 4 pm|
|Saturday||10 am – 5pm|
At any time, you can e-mail your request to Norm Medeiros or Theresa Donahue. Posters are printed during the hours listed above; you will be e-mailed when your work is ready. Please make sure that the completed poster is saved in either a PDF or JPG format.
Please inquire at the Research or Circulation Desks about this service. Posters needed for a class presentation are free of charge. Posters needed for club, organization or personal use will cost $10 (cash only, please).
If you choose to paste content from other files/sources, use the "Paste Special..." option:
- for PC users, use "Paste Special..." and choose metafile
- for Mac users, use "Paste Special..." and choose picture
Elements (images, text, etc.) on your poster will appear much larger in print. It is important, then, to set the template zoom to 100% when gauging size.
Please ensure that no more than 30% of the total area has a colored background.
If it is necessary to have the higher resolution on your pictures, then please have the poster ready early so that the processing on the printer (which can take as long as 1 hour) will not tie up the printer for others to use to meet deadlines.
Once finished, save the PowerPoint file as a JPEG.
Store the JPEG on a flash/USB drive to bring with you for printing.
