Poster and Large Format Printing

Our service-oriented staff can help in preparing a high-quality scientific poster. We review all files to check alignment, image quality, etc. We will print a small proof on paper so you have the chance to review and revise it before printing the final version. We can also provide design consultation or design a poster from scratch if needed (design charges will apply).

Upload your poster file and pickup the printed version at Prior Hall, conveniently located in the center of the medical campus.

Cloth Posters

Cloth Poster Image

No need to carry a big, awkward poster tube! Consider printing on cloth. Unlike paper posters, cloth posters can be loosely folded and transported in a suitcase or carry-on.


Paper Poster: Regular turnaround $6.00 per sq. foot
Paper Poster: RUSH* $9.00 per sq. foot
Cloth Poster: Regular turnaround $8.00 per sq. foot
Cloth Poster:  RUSH* $12.00 per sq. foot

For example, a 56" x 36" poster, our most commonly requested size, would be $90 printed on paper, or $120 printed on cloth. 

Same-day printing is not always available and MAY incur RUSH pricing. If same-day printing is needed call Medical Visuals at (614) 292-8034.

How to Order: 

  1. Send file(s) via the Medical Visuals Poster Upload Form. The preferred file formats are PowerPoint or PDF and a maximum file size of 50MB.
  2. An 11"x17" proof is included in the price of the poster; any subsequent proofs are $8 each.
  3. Once the proof is approved the full size poster will be printed.

Special Considerations: 

  • Payment must be received to release the work.
  • Pay by cash, personal checks, credit card, or OSU eRequest. If paying by eRequest call us first for the final cost estimate. We are listed in the eRequest system as HSL Medical Visuals.
  • Pay by credit card using the Online Payment form. Let us know in advance if using an OSU department Pcard, otherwise sales tax will be charged.
  • If paying with a personal credit card include the invoice number and the total amount billed. Select "HSL Medical Visuals in the 'Department Providing Service' box.
  • A copy of the payment receipt is required to pick up a poster.
