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.
- DML reserves the right not to print an order and patron will be notified.
- The printing service is only available Monday through Friday.
- All orders must be received 48 hours in advance. Group orders (10 or more files) must be received 7 days in advance.
