Large format poster printing is limited to the VCU community and will require logging in with your eID to submit the file(s).
Library staff will not design, format, or edit your poster in any way. What you submit to the VCU Libraries is exactly what will be printed.
To save yourself time and money, be sure to proof, edit, and revise your poster carefully before submitting it to be printed. If you discover any mistakes in your poster after printing you will still be responsible for the cost and will need to resubmit your poster if you wish to have it reprinted. You will be responsible for the cost of the reprint as well as that of the original.
The poster layout should be on a single Microsoft PowerPoint slide or PDF document.
Poster printing on paper is available at The Workshop at Cabell Library. Poster printing on paper and fabric is available at Tompkins-McCaw Library. Please specify your preference for fabric or paper in the notes field when submitting your poster at Tompkins-McCaw.
