As regards poster delivery: 

  1. First try to email Adrianna the poster.
  2. If it is too large for email, copy the poster to  P:\Faculty&StaffOnly\CharlotteT\Posters 
  3. If you don’t have access to the P drive, a flash drive is fine

Adrianna will call or email when the posters are done printing.

1. We have two rolls at 36" and 42". Format the height (width) of your poster to either of these dimensions. Before making your poster in Powerpoint, go to page setup and make it the final size.  Please don’t ask us to scale posters for you.     

2. When making your poster, you must leave a 5/8 inch border around your poster because the plotter can not plot to the edge.  Our widest roll of paper is 42 inches so your guides should leave only 40.75 inches of workspace ( 34.75 for a 36 inch roll) 

3.      If you are using pictures from a Mac, resave them in Photoshop or similar programs as IBM compatible or they will not print in Powerpoint.

4.      If you have a number of equations and graphs in Illustrator , save them as a .jpg and bring that into PowerPoint.

5.      Please ONLY send posters as ppt or pptx.  We have an old Plotter and it is not a postscript  so it is difficult to read pdf’s.  

6. We do not print black backgrounds.
