Poster Being Printed

OSU sponsored and voluntary student organizations receive up to four standard paper posters free per event. There is a reduced additional charge if you would like to upgrade the paper type on these posters.  We can also print 42 inch wide posters for a fee.

Mounting and additional prints can be ordered for a fee. Lamination is available for a fee ($10) at a maximum width of 36 inches. All fees are charged to the student organization via purchase order.

Files delivered in Microsoft PowerPoint/Publisher or Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign must be submitted in their native format. Templates available.

Posters created using any other authoring tool should be delivered as a PDF, TIF, or JPG.

NEW ORDER FORM: If your source file is less than 20 MB, please use our SMS Print Order Form to upload your file and place your print order. For files larger than 20 MB, please drop off a thumb drive containing your file(s) at the SMS service desk in the Valley Library. Be sure you include your name, OSU ID number, phone number, desired finished size, number of copies, and anticipated pick-up time.

Due to storage limitations, SMS cannot keep copies of electronic production files once a job is completed and cannot hold printed materials over 30 days. Customers are responsible for keeping copies of their production files and for picking up their orders within 30 days of completion.
