Large Format Printing


The poster layout should be on a single Microsoft PowerPoint slide or PDF document.


Maximum Size

42 inches on the shortest side. It can be as long as you need it. Note: We are unable to cut the excess off posters more than 50 inches wide.


How fast can it be printed?

Typically in 48-72 hours. You'll receive an email when your poster is ready.


Poster printing requests of 5 or more posters will be considered batch orders. The library requires at least 1 week of lead time for orders of 10 or more posters. Larger orders may require additional lead time depending on current printing demand. Inquiries about batch orders should be sent to (Health Sciences Library) or (Cabell Library).


Posters are $10 per foot, or portion thereof, on the longest side.  

Example: A three and a half foot poster will be charged at four feet which is $40.  

NEW: Effective July 1, 2024, Payments must be made online (select Printing Service Payments for VCU Libraries) or via VCU departmental budget code.

Submitting Your Poster for Printing

Proof, Edit, and Revise Your Poster!

To avoid delays, please make sure to review your poster design prior to submitting and ensure that the dimensions of your design match your requested print size. Library staff will not design, format, proofread or edit your poster in any way. What you submit to the VCU Libraries is exactly what will be printed. If you need to make a correction after the poster is printed, you will be responsible for the cost of the reprint as well as that of the original.
