Large-format printing

The Schusterman Library's large format printing service offers fee-based printing of posters, banners, and other oversized documents.

See our policies and prices for this service below.

Hours of Operation for Large Format Printing

  • Posters may be printed M-Th, 8 am-4:30 pm in the Schusterman Library Interlibrary Loan Office (Room 201).  Make an appointment with Vicki Ford (918) 660-3225.

Service

  • Large-format printing is available only for current OU-Tulsa students, faculty and staff.
  • Posters will be printed in the order that they are submitted.   Please allow ample time for printing before your submission deadline.
  • Printing may take up to a half hour or longer, depending on size.
  • Bring your poster saved on a disk or USB drive.  We are not able to retrieve files from email accounts.
  • A page-sized preview print will be provided at no charge.  Be sure you review all spelling and formatting before authorizing the final print.
  • Posters will be re-printed at no charge only if there is a printer malfunction.  If the patron requests a reprint because of spelling, formatting, color or other file errors, there will be a second charge.

Size and Paper

  • Posters are limited to 36” on one dimension (the maximum width of the paper feed on the printer).  Posters and banners may be up to 12’ in length.
  • The library stocks good-quality coated paper.  No choice of paper is available.
  • Lamination and/or trimming, if desired, must be done by the patron.

Format

  • We recommend submitting your poster as a .pdf file.  Posters should be designed using Photoshop, Illustrator, or PowerPoint, if possible.
  • Most departments provide a template for poster design.  Be sure you meet university restrictions on the use of emblems and logos.
