Poster Printer

The color printer, a Canon PRO-4100S, is in the print room on the second floor of PAÍS. It can print 36-inch prints on the short side. It is for Physics and Astronomy Department and Interdisciplinary Sciences-affiliated researchers to print research posters.

A typical research poster size of 36"x48" would be $51.

Your file should be formatted for portrait printing.

If your poster is wider than it is long, go to Edit/Rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise then save the file. Here is an example of what it should look like.

If we have to print it again due to an error in your file, we must charge for each print, so make sure your file is correctly formatted and spell-checked. We do not do laminations.

Print Instructions

  1. If you are a student, get an index number from your faculty advisor
  2. Fill out a Purchase Order form and submit it to the Physics and Astronomy Front Office in PAÍS 1180
  3. If you are an Interdisciplinary Sciences researcher, please check with Senior Operations Manager (Carla Sakiestewa) to get authorized to use the printer
  4. You may then work with PAÍS Facilities manager Chris Moroney to print your research poster from a .pdf file on your flash drive
