Poster Printing

One of the many support services offered by PVM-IT is large format poster printing. 

MIIT Poster Printing

Files maybe submited in person Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. or shared via Filelocker at any time.  If files are shared via Filelocker, they will be processed the following business day.  Instructions are available upon request.

Depending on the volume of orders, equipment status and personnel availability, wait times for printing may be several days. Please have posters ready well before your deadline in case of a long wait. Plan to have your poster turned in 1 week before you actually need it.

During special events or conferences like Phi Zeta, posters will be printed in the order they are received and must be turned in by the posted deadline. If posters are submitted past the deadline, we do not guarantee that they will be ready by your requested date. Earlier is always better than waiting until the last minute.

In order to provide a quality service, PVM-IT requests that posters meet the following requirements and guidelines.

Poster Requirements:

  • Please proof your poster before bringing it in. We try to watch for things that may cause printing problems or create poor quality posters; however, we do not proof your posters for content or spelling nor do we print a hardcopy for proofing.
  • Posters should be delivered in PDF (*.pdf) format.  We can accept PowerPoint, Illustrator or Publisher files.
  • Posters must be delivered on flash drive, disc or via Purdue Filelocker.
     NO Files will be accepted via email or as Footprints’ Attachments.
  • Dimensions should not exceed the following:
    • Medium: 36” x 56”
    • Large: 42” x 56”
  • Images should have a minimum resolution of 300dpi.  View posters at 200% to check the quality of the images. 
  • All posters must meet PVM branding requirements.  IE:  Purdue and PVM logos must be of high quality and must maintain their proper aspect ratios. High quality logos can be obtained from the Office of Advancement.
  • Please choose Standard Windows fonts.
  • Colors are not guaranteed.  Different printers interpret your work differently.  Dark background colors do NOT print well. 
  • Heavily colored backgrounds that use excessive ink will not be printed. 
  • All posters will be reviewed by PVM-IT prior to printing to ensure all guidelines are met.

*Note: Posters not meeting the preceding guidelines will be returned for revision.
