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 did us a popular printing service. We now find that it is not unusual for us to print dozens of posters in the days before 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 before large conferences. Our printing service has been immensely popular 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. 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
    • 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 do try to get them printed sooner and we will notify you when they are available. We strongly suggest you do not leave it to the last minute! Please allow additional time before large conferences. “Rush” orders are processed before standard rules in the order they are received.


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