Poster Preparation and Submission Guidelines
Office of Public Health Studies

In addition to information found on our Poster Printing Service Web Pages, OPHS poster submitters should be aware of the following:

Poster Charges: There is no charge for posters authored and submitted by OPHS faculty/staff. When you submit your poster, specify OPHS as the department and do not complete the invoicing portion of the submission form. Poster printing is the only no cost service available to OPHS faculty/staff.

Reprinting: Please see the section of our main guidelines regarding Draft Printing and Reprinting. We do not print draft versions of posters that are intended to be proof-read, corrected and resubmitted. If this is required, you may either print your poster on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper, or take it to a commercial poster printer for an inexpensive black and white poster-sized draft copy. If we make an error in printing your poster, we will reprint it at no charge. Posters that are resubmitted with corrections or modifications after the the first copy has been printed will be subject to our normal poster charges. Please include invoicing information when you submit your reprint request.

Poster Trimming: Your poster will be printed centered on paper that is 42 inches wide. We do not provide border trimming for OPHS posters.

Poster Lamination: Lamination is not offered as a no cost service to OPHS printed posters. If you want lamination done please note in the comments if you will be paying for it personally or by departmental funds. If no note is left in the comments lamination will not be done.
