Discovery Park District Poster Lab

The poster lab allows faculty, staff, and students associated with the College of Engineering or Purdue’s interdisciplinary institutes and centers to request 24x36- or 36x48-inch posters for conferences, poster sessions, etc.

Individuals requesting poster printing are encouraged to use the poster printer within the posted hours. Having your poster printed is not always guaranteed. Walk-ins outside the scheduled poster lab hours will not be accommodated. Limit one poster per student.

We should be notified ahead of time when large quantities are expected for symposiums, poster sessions or workshops. These must be submitted one week before the poster session to ensure that we can get it printed.

DPD center/institute and Engineering students: please email your proofed pdf presentation to The poster print staff will let you know via email when your poster is ready for pickup.

Please provide the poster print staff with the following:

  • Name
  • Department/College
  • Reason for poster: conference, poster, etc.

We do not print posters with colored backgrounds (no filled-in color backgrounds). Please allow 48-72 notice for your poster to be printed. Quantities over 10 require a week's notice.

Poster Printer Requirements

Proof your poster before you click SEND. We don't do reprints!

You are responsible for any poster trimming outside the standard.

Picking Up Your Poster

When you pick up your poster, please use the laptop to sign it out. Please provide all information requested. The laptop is located by the desktop computer. If you personally cannot pick up your poster, please let us know who will be picking it up and signing on your behalf. We are not responsible for your poster once it leaves our lab.
