Guidelines for printing

  • Posters can be printed up to 44 inches tall.
  • Accepted file formats: PowerPoint, PDF, JPG, JPEG, and TIFF.
  • We briefly review files before printing. We do not provide proofreading services.
  • We can print CMYK profiled items, but we cannot offer "color perfect" service.
  • Use large images. Small, low resolution images from the web will be pixelated when printed.
  • Please design your poster at the exact printing dimension.
  • Once the print job has started, changes cannot be made. Library users are responsible for the cost of that print job plus the cost of any subsequent/altered prints.
  • Embed any special symbols or unusual fonts that are important for your project.
