How do I print a poster?

The wide format printer is not a self-service machine, so the library staff must make the prints for you. To submit a print request, please contact Preston Howell. To speed up the process, please include the following in your email: paper type, file in the correct size, and an applicable budget number.

The cost for each poster includes a $1.00 charge per square foot of print area. Afterwards, there is a charge per square foot of paper used, which varies based on type. Below you will find a current list of options available in NicMedia.
