|GLEL Printing Services|
| We offer
convenient, high-quality poster printing right here on campus! Unlike
our competitors, we use only UV resistant ink, so the poster won't fade from
sunlight. Our printer is capable of photo quality prints, and we can
also provide large-format prints on draft-quality paper for projects
that don't require a glossy poster paper. |
When you have your poster ready, email the file to Dan Bert. We will confirm that we have received your poster, and discuss any time or delivery considerations you may require.
We can generally provide same day or next day service. During busy times (for example honour's poster day) in late March and early April, we highly recommend you book your time in advance. If possible, we would appreciate an email a few days before you send us the poster so we can schedule the printer most efficiently.
For more information, contact Dan Bert.
Standard poster sizes on photo gloss paper using UV resistant ink (48x42 inches): $72.00 each**Poster Formatting:
Our printer is capable of a maximum dimension of 42" on one side: standard poster size is generally 48x42 or 42x48 inches (but check with the conference you are attending to be sure).Known issues: We have had issues with omnigraffe and sigmaplot figures/plots when they are embedded directly into a powerpoint slide, even when a pdf is produced from the powerpoint slide. The pdf will 'look' fine but will not print correctly. Instead of copy/paste directly from the originating software package, we recommend saving the file to a high resolution/high quality jpeg and then importing the jpeg into the powerpoint slide. This seems to cure the corruption in the slide. We have had similar issues with complex transparency settings in powerpoint.
