Would you please plan your poster printing needs to conform to the new hours of operation?

We will only accept last-minute poster orders if scheduling permits.


Overview of Services

In 2003, we began offering a non-profit poster printing service for affiliates of Vanderbilt's biomedical sciences graduate programs. Our low cost, fast turnaround time, and convenient location quickly made us a popular printing service. We now find that it is not unusual for us to print dozens of posters on the days before large scientific meetings. Posters need to be submitted for printing at least two business days before they are required to avoid disappointment, and we strongly suggest you allow additional time before large conferences. Our printing service has been top-rated because of its low cost and convenient location, and we need to implement this policy to continue printing posters in a timely fashion. As always, posters are printed on a first-come, first-served basis. You can submit a poster in the finalized form according to the Technical Specifications.


  • We support both the PC and Mac platforms.
  • A variety of solid white rigid mounting surfaces to choose from sizes (18 x 24 and 36 x 24)
  • Poster tubes (size 36 and 42 inches)
  • We print 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 17 handouts of your poster in color, black, or white.
  • Poster Printing Materials
    • Canon Glossy Photo size paper 24, 36, and 42 inch
    • Canon Satin Photo size paper 36 and 42 inch
    • Water Resistant Fabric size paper 36 and 42

: Please keep in mind that there may be several large meetings and retreats for which we print large numbers of posters. Posters will be ready two business days after submission at the latest, although we will try to get them printed sooner and notify you when they are available. We strongly suggest you do not leave it to the last minute! Would you please allow additional time before large conferences? "Rush" orders are processed before standard rules in the order they are received.


Note:   Pickup time is 8:00 to 4:00 unless the poster is sent after 5:00. If submitted after 5:00, it will be available the next day.
