Poster Printing

GUIDELINES FOR POSTER PRINTING (PLEASE READ!):

1) Fill out the Poster Printing Request form; you will need to save this file to your computer, fill it in, and attach it to the email, along with your poster, to csurf@uncw.edu.

2) Posters should be created using PowerPoint (see directions below). Files must be saved at .ppt or .pptx to be printed.

  • When saving your poster, please use your first name_last name as the file name so we are able to keep track of your poster in our system.

3) How long does it take to have your poster printed?

The short answer to this question is to allow as much time as possible! We print posters during our office hours (poster printing is not available over the weekend), so please factor this into deciding when you need to submit your poster for timely printing.

  • If you are requesting printing for a professional conference, we ask for two days notice (not including Saturday and Sunday).
  • If you are requesting printing for a class assignment , we ask for 5-7 days notice
    • Keep in mind that this impacts your assignment "due date", for example, if your assignment is due on a Friday, you will need to email your poster to CSURF by the Friday prior.

4) Check over your poster prior to submission!

  • Please read all poster making guidelines below before starting your poster
  • PROOFREAD! PROOFREAD! PROOFREAD! The file you submit is what we will print and we are only able to print a poster ONCE
  • Check all photos and graphics for clarity (see below for instructions)
  • Make sure your name is on your poster
  • Please use the "Designing an Effective Poster" PowerPoint to assist you in designing your poster, or contact us at csurf@uncw.edu if you have any questions!
  • Additional help can be found here.
