Before you Print

Students are responsible for typos, formatting, image resolution, margins, etc. We will not reprint, so please double check your work!
  1. Double-check for spelling and grammar mistakes (ask a friend - a new set of eyes is more likely to catch errors).
  2. Make sure your poster is sized correctly, and your images are not pixelated. Set dimensions to 48" x 36."
  3. Save your file as a PDF and save it in multiple locations (preferably a cloud-based location).
  4. Give yourself enough time to have your poster printed. We ask for a 2-week business day turn-around from the time you submit to the time you get the poster.
  5. Schedule your poster print:


General Information

The library is piloting a new poster printing service for faculty and students at GHC. The printer may be used for appropriate academic and classroom purposes. We print 48” x 36” posters in black and white or color. During this trial period, we will not be charging; however, your dean must approve your project. 


Who can use this service?

This service is limited to GHC faculty for academic or classroom use. Projects must be approved by the appropriate divisional dean. Please use the MarCom Service form for any other printing needs.


How much lead time do you need?

We require your file two weeks before your pickup date.


Where can I pick up my print?

You can pick up your print at any GHC Library location. An email will be sent you to when it is ready.  

How large can I print?

We only print 48”x36”

What file formats can I use?

We accept Adobe Files (.pdf) and we recommend that you submit your power point (.ppt) file as well. 


Can I get help using the printer? Can someone help my students use printer?

YES! We're happy to help you with your printing needs.  We have created this libguide to walk you through the print process, but we're also happy to come to your class and provide an information literacy session to help your students understand how to create a poster print. Please schedule your class visit using this form. 


Wait – it’s free? Who’s paying?

The Division of Natural Sciences has agreed to cover our supply cost during this trial period. Thank you, Science!
