The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event with all product staff. iLab Support will be staffed at significantly reduced levels and will focus on critical issues only (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here) and we will prioritize those requests first. Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Vanderbilt BRET Poster Printing Core

Overview of Services

In 2003, we began offering a non-profit poster printing service for affiliates of the biomedical sciences graduate programs at Vanderbilt. 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 in the days prior to large scientific meetings. To avoid disappointment, posters need to be submitted for printing at least two business days in advance of when they are needed, and we strongly suggest you allow additional time prior to large conferences. Our printing service has been immensely popular because of its low cost and convenient location, and we need to implement this policy in order to continue printing posters in a timely fashion. As always, posters are printed on a first-come, first-served basis. Posters can be submitted in their finalized form according to the Technical Specifications.


  • We support both PC and Mac platform.
  • A variety of solid white rigid mounting surfaces to choose from size (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 or black white
  • Poster Printing Materials
    • Canon Glossy Photo size paper 24, 36 and 42 inch
    • Cannon 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 do try to get them printed sooner and we will notify you when they are ready. We strongly suggest you do not leave it to the last minute! Please allow additional time prior to large conferences. “Rush” orders are processed before standard orders in the order are received.


Note:   Pickup time 9:00 to 5:00 unless poster was sent after 5:00, if sent after this time it will be available next day.
