Poster Printing

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.
