Ready for Research Posters:

As always, we are here to provide convenient and high-quality scientific poster printing.

You can upload your poster directly to our website. And our Health Sciences Library (Prior Hall) office is conveniently located on the medical campus.

Our service-oriented staff help you prepare a professional poster. We review your file to check alignment, image quality, etc. We print a small proof on the actual paper, so you have the chance to review and revise it before getting the final. We can also provide design consultation or design a poster from scratch if needed (design charges will apply).

Offering Cloth Posters:

Consider printing your next poster on our cloth material. Unlike paper posters, cloth posters can be loosely folded and transported in a suitcase to your conference. No need to carry a big, awkward poster tube. Contact Meg Birmingham for more information and prices.



Paper Poster: Regular turnaround $6.00 Sq. Foot
Paper Poster: RUSH* $9.00 Sq. Foot
Cloth Poster: Regular turnaround $8.00 Sq. Foot
Cloth Poster:  RUSH* $12.00 Sq. Foot

How to Use/Order: 

Our Easy 3-Step Process

  1. Send us your file(s) via our file transfer page. The preferred file formats are PowerPoint or PDF.
  2. We print an 11"x17" proof and call you when it's ready to review. The first proof is included in the price of the poster; any subsequent proofs are $8 each.
  3. Once you approve the proof, we print the full size poster.
Special Considerations: 

We accept cash, personal checks and OSU eRequest. If you are paying by eRequest you will need to know the final cost when placing the request. We can tell you the final cost or provide you with a cost estimate when you call us.

We are listed as HSL Medical Visuals in the eRequest vendor menu.

NOTE: We must have payment in order to release the work.
