To print a research poster on campus contact the Printing Services. Generally, research posters are 36 inches by 48 inches, but posters of various sizes can be printed. Posters can take up to a week to print so do not wait until the last minute.
It typically costs under $25 to print a research poster, and payment can be made at the Printing Services or with an on-campus budget number provided by your faculty advisor. If you are presenting your research at a conference, a travel stipend may also cover the cost.
