Poster Printing

Users must come to the Library to print posters , files cannot be emailed or sent any other way to staff for printing. All image files must be in .pdf format to print correctly, bringing the image file to the library on a flash drive is highly recommended. For best results we recommend your final poster be 150-300 dpi. Keep in mind that images on the web are often 72dpi and may become pixelated if they are enlarged to poster size.
