The Digital Scholarship Lab is moving!

Due to construction, the large format printing service will be temporarily unavailable starting May 12th at 5:00pm until the start of the Fall 2023 semester. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Presenting a poster at a conference? Never fear, we have the tools to help you out!

Large Format Printing

Properly formatted poster submissions will be printed within three business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holiday and break periods) and can be paid for/picked up at the Raynor Digital Scholarship Lab Desk (Raynor Lower Level). Students will be notified via email when the print is ready for pick-up.

We offer three types of paper:

Type Description Cost Per Linear Inch
Universal Bond Paper Matte, 90gsm Paper (Standard printer paper weight) $0.26
Photographic Paper Photographic paper, semigloss, 200 gsm $0.35
Polyester Vinyl Lightweight, Matte finish $0.45

For example, a 36” x 48” poster printed on Universal bond paper would cost $12.48 (48 x .26).

Digital Scholarship Lab staff can provide a cost estimate if needed.

Patrons who do not pick up their posters by the end of the semester will have a hold applied to their library account until the cost of the print has been paid. Payment is accepted via Marquette Cash at the Digital Scholarship Lab Desk.
