Poster printing at the Bollinger Digital Fabrication Lab, Biotech Commons

We're happy to accommodate bulk printing/billing orders for classes, events or departments.   

Please follow the instructions below.  For additional help, email Varvara Kountouzi at varvarak@upenn.edu

Step 1: gather info

  • students' or department members' names.  If people will be printing in groups, we'll need the group info as well in order to make sure we don't double-print (and double-charge!) your account
  • decide what the department will pay for:
    • maximum poster dimensions? 
    • material (paper at $0.03 or travel-friendly fabric at $0.06)?
    • carrying tubes? Cardboard ($5) or reusable ($30)?
    • priority service (extra $25)

Step 2: obtain approval

Fill out the request for approval to charge the departmental account. Remember to:

  • Include the names of all individuals or groups that will be printing posters
  • Select all the add-ons that the department will pay for, if any (carrying tubes or priority service)
  • Make sure the BA's email is correct
  • After you submit the form, check with your BA.  Once you submit the form, the BA will receive an email.  Inform your BA that they will have to click on the email, fill out and submit the rest of the form.  We will be unable to process the order until we have received the BA's part

Step 3: communicate with your group

Make sure the members of your class or department know the requirements:

  • Maximum poster dimensions covered by the department
  • Deadline for submitting orders: we guarantee turnaround time of 24 business hours.  For large groups, we request even more lead time.  If the department will not pay for priority (rush) service, please make that clear to your group
  • Instruct users to refer to the group/class/department name when placing an order.  They do not have to fill out individual pre-approval forms!
