Poster printing at the Biomedical Library: Home

The poster printing service is closed due to COVID-19

If you need consultation services, please send your draft to varvarak@upenn.edu.  Please do NOT use the links below to make appointments or to print-via-email! 

 

Checkout our new section on VIRTUAL POSTERS! 

How it works

By appointment

OR

By email

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 :)

More...

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 (use "export" or "save as" and avoid "print to PDF").

  • We will print the file that you send us AS IS and you agree to pick up and pay for the poster.

  • 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 do find major issues with the poster file, we may ask you to come in person before we print it.

Please note that the same turn-around restrictions apply to posters submitted via email.
