Departmental Poster Printing

Epson printerThe Psychological Sciences Department's Electronics Shop maintains a wide-format printer for printing posters for conferences.

Use of the wide-format printer is limited for use by faculty and graduate students in the Psychological Sciences Department only.

Printer

You can print posters on the Psychology Shop's Epson 9880 44" poster printer. We offer paper sizes of 24", 36", 44" and landscaping widths of 56" and larger. We can print PowerPoint, Adobe PDF, and others on Mac and PC.

Procedure

Please have your poster on a flash drive or email it to yourself. We suggest it be saved as a pdf and native format. PDF format is easy to scale and native format in case you need to do a last minute edit.

We want you present when your poster is being printed. You load the poster on our computer, then we will set up the print process. You monitor the results to be sure it is printing correctly; e.g. size, color, orientation, etc. This way there are no surprises when you get the poster.

Schedule

We ask that you schedule 1 hour to print by either coming down to the shop and reserving a time on our scheduling(equipment check-out) computer or call /email psych-help@psych.purdue.edu to schedule the time to print. It usually takes approximately 40 minutes to print a 44" x 56" poster on glossy paper if all goes well. At times during the semester the poster printer gets very busy and there could be a day or two wait if you don't get your name in early.

If you experience problems that cause you to run past your allotted time, you will need to reschedule for another time.
Please do not email posters to us to print for you.
