Answer

Poster Printing Service

The Large Format Printer at the AU Library is intended to support the research community here on campus and is reserved for academic use by current AU Faculty, Staff and Students. The hours of operation follow the schedule of the Technology Services Desk.

For design help and template advice, on the Technology page, scroll down to Academic Poster Design Resources

Appointments are encouraged for the poster printing machine!

The Tech Services staff appreciate printing appointments (email us at autechservices@gmail.com), but we may also be able to accommodate walk-in requests. Each print can take about 20 minutes and lines may form, so please plan ahead.


To print, you will need to bring a valid student id and a completed PDF file of your work. We highly recommend you consult some of the poster printing guidelines (linked below) before designing your poster, and your finished file should be saved as a PDF regardless of the design program you used to create the poster.

All of our paper is HP Glossy Photo Paper, and the prices are charged by the length of the poster you printed. The price per linear foot varies by the width of the paper roll. For more information, click here.
