How To Order Your Print

    24 – 48 hours in advance to the Media Lab staff, either in person or via email  to MediaLab@miami.edu
  • All print orders must be sized by the patron to the desired dimensions
    (Example: 22×44 inches)
  • Pick up your print at the agreed time. Turn around time is 24-48 hours.

Poster Creation Tips

  • Create your poster in the actual size you require.
  • Use full size images (at least 100 dpi, but 300 dpi will look much better).
  • If possible, avoid compressed formats, like jpg, which are more likely to lose quality.
  • When using MS PowerPoint, turn on the Ruler option under Design-Page Setup to adjust the size of your slide.
  • Save your final document as a PDF.



  • Patrons are responsible for the design of their posters. This includes creation of any graphics and text formatting.
  • The printer can only be operated by the Digital Media Lab staff.
  • Copyrighted, offensive, or pornographic images will not be printed.
  • The printing service is only available Monday through Friday.
  • All orders must be received 24 – 48 hours in advance.
  • Group orders (10 or more files) must be received 7 days in advance.
