Tips for posters
Download one of our pre-configured templates (see section Creating your poster) - this will ensure your images and text print correctly at A0, A1 or A2.
Allow at least 24 hours for printing.
Large format printing in A2, A1 and A0 size is available at the Welcome Desk.
Prices are as follows:
- A0 = £4.00
- A1 = £2.00
- A2 = £1.00
Protective plastic sleeves are available from the Welcome Desk free of charge
Due to the complexity of formatting documents correctly in order to print in large format, our support staff are available to assist with printing your document as follows:
- Monday-Friday 9am - 9pm at the Welcome Desk; and
- weekends 11 am-5pm at theWelcome Desk.
Please allow at least 24 hours for printing. Usually your poster can be printed on demand but during busy periods this is not guaranteed. You may be asked to leave your poster file with us and collect the next day and if you require multiple posters this may take longer.
If your tutor has made prior arrangements with the library you should follow carefully any Moodle hand-in instructions. We cannot guarantee to print your poster if you have not followed the agreed procedure.
