The Austin 103 TSC offers large-format printing services on main campus.

Get Started

Acceptable file formats are PDF (preferred) or Microsoft PowerPoint in the highest resolution available with embedded fonts. We do not format, edit, laminate or mount posters.

Please do not request multiple copies of the same poster.

Paper rolls are 42 inches wide. Either the width or length of a poster may exceed 42 inches, but not both sides. Maximum size is 42×84 inches. Minimum size is 11×17. To print documents 11×17 or smaller, contact ECU Rapid Copy.

Any of the poster templates here will correctly format your poster.

Tips for a successful poster:

  • Use a white background whenever possible.
  • Use only one page for the entire poster.
  • For sharp resolution, fonts, images, charts and tables should be embedded in the slide (not linked).
  • Note that the colors on your monitor may not reproduce exactly the same on the printed poster. See the ECU Branding website for official color pallet.
  • Image resolution should be set to at least 300 dpi.
  • Be sure to embed within your slide all non-standard fonts you are legally entitled to use. This is especially important when using symbols.

Service Availability

Posters are printed on a first come, first served basis, usually within 24 hours unless there is a high volume of requests or a problem with the poster. Posters are printed Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays, in the Austin 103 TSC.
