Presenters are responsible for printing their own posters. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the Graphics Lab in MacAlister Hall room 4012. Please review the details below.
- The Graphics Lab at Drexel prints traditional poster-size pieces (3 feet by 4 feet) as a standard service. They are able to print at larger physical sizes, however this takes more time, costs a good deal more (about 5x), and may not be an option in the final days before Research Day.
- Each poster takes 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour to print. There are often long queues of posters waiting to be printed. Therefore, it may take two or three days to print a poster. Printing is done on a first-come, first-served basis. Same day requests may be impossible to fulfill.
- The Graphics lab can print files of the following formats: JPEG, PDF, Powerpoint, and TIFF. The format that poses the fewest problems is a PDF.
- Files may be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or brought to the Graphics lab in MacAlister hall room 4012 from 9AM-5PM, weekdays. Telephone number is 215-895-2926.
- Students are responsible for proof-reading their posters in advance of printing. Students may open their files and view them in the Graphics lab before printing. A reprint fee will be charged if the student's error necessitates a second print.
- Form of payment is cash, check or department charge number. If paying with a department charge number, the student should provide the number at the time of the request.
- When making a request, the student should specify glossy or matte finish, and specify the size (in inches) that the poster should be printed. The charge for students is $3 per square foot, whether glossy or matte, color or back and white.
