Printing Services

WSU Spokane Printing Services offers a limited array of poster services: wide-format printing, lamination, and mounting. All of our services are listed below with pricing. Orders for small-format printing and lamination, binding, and mailing can be directed to WSU Design and Printing Services in Pullman.

Please allow a minimum turnaround of two business days for single poster requests or five business days for multiple printing requests/group posters.

For events such as WSU Research Day or the WSU Spokane Research Symposium, requests should be submitted a minimum of 5 business days before the event.

Printing Formats & Templates

Please submit your file as a PDF document. All files must be print-ready (sized appropriately for the desired print output, edited, and final approved version). The maximum paper width is 44”. Poster orientation can be changed for printing to accommodate wider posters, provided the other dimension is not greater than 44”. If you are creating an academic poster, you can use the templates provided below for best results.

Creating an Academic Poster

Academic posters are a popular method for researchers to share their work with the academic community. They allow for direct interaction and feedback and foster networking and further discussion. If you are making your first academic poster and are unsure what to do, you can find a step-by-step guide on the WSU Health Science Library LibGuides website.
