Poster Printing

**WARNING: Poster printing is only available for UIC College of Education faculty, staff and registered students. Requests from other UIC communities will NOT be honored, and your email address will be reported for SPAM! **

Poster Printing Request Note

1. Printing of posters is a service that is provided to faculty, staff and students by the Educational Technology Lab for public presentations such as conferences. The cost ($60-80 per 44” poster; $30-40 per 24”poster) is covered by the College of Education.

2. Printing of a poster, assuming that there are no glitches with formatting, etc., requires 3-4 hours. It is very different technology than that of the typical office printer and the ETL plotter printer is not of the quality of a print shop such as Kinkos.

3. Particularly during “conference season,” ETL receives high volumes of requests for printing, so it is important to submit a request with as much lead time as possible; one week advance minimum.
