Poster & 3D printing in the Penn Libraries: Poster Printing at the Bollinger Digital Fabrication Lab, Biotech Commons


The poster printing service will remain on hiatus until further notice.  

If you need your poster printed on paper, you may use the Vitale Digital Media Lab services:

We apologize for the inconvenience! 

How it works

In-person by appointment


Online submission

This is the recommended option.  Choose this option if any of the below apply to you:

  • you have not used our service before
  • you are not able to save your poster as a PDF file, or if for some reason the PDF file is distorted or not formatted properly  
  • you would like to preview your poster at close-to-real size on our large monitor
  • you have used our service before and are a satisfied customer, so you want to come see us even if you don't need to :)


This option will save you a trip to the library, but use ONLY IF you agree to the following terms:

  • You are able to export your poster as PDF.

  • We will let you know if something is terribly wrong, such as blurry images, and give you a chance to send us a different file.  We will not proof your poster for typos or minor formatting issues.  If we find major issues with the poster file that are difficult to resolve via email, we may ask you to come in person.

  • Once you give your final confirmation, you agree to pay for the poster.

Please note that the same turn-around restrictions apply to online submissions and are contingent upon your timely confirmation.
