Poster printing information

We print and laminate posters in a range of sizes up to 1m x 4m, material posters up to 1.1m x 4m, as well as stocking poster tubes for safe and easy transport. Please check the advice section from time to time, as our print specifications can change with software upgrades. Turnaround time is usually 2 working days. There is a special same-day service which attracts a 25% surcharge.

If you can't find the information you need in the Poster Printing Guide, please email the Imaging + Posters team or give us a call.

Please Note:

(1) Once you have placed the order for your poster, any re-prints due to changes to the poster on your behalf will be charged at full price.

(2) Before printing your poster we require your 25 digit themis account string for University of Melbourne staff & students, or for external customers, the name and email of person to be invoiced, or Creditcard details.

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.
