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. Appointments can be arranged by emailing  techservices@american.edu. The usual hours during the semester are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please confirm with the Technology Services Desk.

For more information, take a look at the Poster Printing page.

The Tech Services staff may 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.
