Printing Posters

May 2020 Graduating Seniors consult with your faculty advisor regarding your presentation.

Booth Library has a plotter printer that is used to print posters.

Poster printing must be done through library staff; students cannot operate the plotter printer from library computers. Since the service is contingent upon the availability of staff, appointments are required.

__________

Poster printing is available to all. The cost is $3.50/sq.ft. (e.g.  the standard 3' x 2' poster would cost $21.00 to print.).

To arrange a printing appointment contact either library@dewv.edu or 304.637.1200
