Using the Library Poster Printer

  1. Find “Library 24in Plotter” on the drive \print1 and add this printer
    • Mac Users at this time will have to use a campus PC to print.
  2. Save your poster as a pdf and open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader to print.
  3. Undergraduate research posters are typically 24X36 inches. 
    • Choose Fit rather than Actual Size on the Adobe print screen
    • If you have a color background, you might change to borderless printing by going to Printer Properties; Paper/Quality; Margin/Layout; Borderless 
    • The printer defaults should be set to the appropriate settings. If you want to check them:
      • For paper size check: Printer properties - Paper/Quality - Document Size - Choose: Super D/A1
      • Also, select Speed (rather than Quality) under Paper/Quality
  4. Send your poster file to “Library 24in Plotter” at least 24 hours in advance

  6. Come to the Media Services desk in the Collaboration Center to pick up your poster.
