General advice for poster printing

The most important things we need to print your poster are:

  • The file (.PPT, .PPTX, .PDF, .TIF, .JPG, .EPS, .PSD are all accepted). Ensure your files are high enough in resolution for large format printing, please contact us if you're unsure of correct file resolution.
  • If your file has not been exported to a high resolution image or PDF, a copy of any 'non standard' fonts you may have used is required.
  • A 25 digit account string for University of Melbourne staff & students, or a Purchase Order for external customers.

Please refer to our Poster Printing Guide for advice on producing a successful poster file - it is full of information on getting started as well as tips and suggestions on various software packages.

You can also refer to the specifications for our poster printer - the Epson Stylus Pro 9900.
