Poster Printing

For poster printing, download either the Word or PDF request form. The Word Document may be typed into and saved to your computer. The PDF must be printed.

We print posters on a 36” or 42” roll of paper or cloth (you must indicate which you prefer on the request form).  We can print a smaller dimension, however, you are responsible for trimming the excess. If designing your poster in PowerPoint, the largest print length would be 56”. If you design it in Publisher (or other software), we can print most any length.

Once you select a poster template, be sure it is formatted to the dimensions you are requesting your poster be printed prior to designing your poster. To check dimensions on a Mac, select file, page set up, and adjust the dimensions accordingly.  On a PC, select design, page set up, and adjust the dimensions according to your needs.

Design Hints & Templates

We have also provided a trifold poster template for you. This should only be used if you plan to mount your poster on a cardboard trifold display.  Please use Firefox or Google Chrome to access the following template.

Completed Forms

Completed forms may be faxed or emailed along with your poster file or hand delivered to Ross 2279C on a flash drive. Please provide us with an original poster version that can be edited, as well as a PDF version. FSI will complete the bottom section that details the cost once the form and poster is received. Note that the form will accommodate multiple posters as needed. If payment is being made by a UNC Department, be sure you have the correct authorized signature on the form. Credit card payments must be made prior to the poster being printed.  Call the office with your credit card information after submitting the poster.
