Poster Printing

CSU Libraries will not be offering poster printing in Spring 2021.  Posters can be printed at FastPrint in the Lory Student Center, Room 175.

The Morgan Library has both a large format and a medium format printer available. These services are available only to those with an active CSU eID and are a first-come/first-serve basis. Please be aware that prints can take anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours, depending on demand and the file size.

To print a poster, place your PDF file on a USB or email it to yourself. Visit the Help Desk and one of the staff members will print it for you.  You must be present when printing a poster.

Formatting Guidelines

  • Since the paper width is exactly 42 inches, we strongly suggest the maximum design for one dimension of the poster should be no longer than 41.5 inches.
  • Make sure you save the final file as a PDF in the correct dimensions. This will help expedite the process.
  • For the best results, review the CAT large format guidelines prior to designing your poster

Payment Information

  • You must pay at the time of service with MasterCard/Visa or an active student account with your CSU ID card.
  • Departments can pay with a departmental account number. The following information is needed for this process: Department Name, Department Number, Department Phone Number, Name of Individual purchasing plot, and Account Number to be billed.
  • Poster Printing Request Form – Instructors and organizations can provide a departmental account number to pay for printing for classes/groups of students.
