Going to a conference or fair?

Poster printing

CEHD has a wide-format printer for posters. This is a free service available to faculty, staff, and students if the poster is related to the college (e.g. conference, display, research).


  • Poster printing is available by appointment Monday through Friday. Contact the Dean’s office at cehd104@umn.edu 612-626-9252 to set up a time or with any questions.
  • Create your poster in PowerPoint. Be sure to enter the dimensions of your poster in the Design>>Page Setup.
  • The largest dimensions that can be printed are 42×60″. Smaller posters with a width of 42” or less are preferred.
  • Use high resolution photos and graphics that are 300 dpi at the size you will use them in your finished poster to prevent pixelation. PowerPoint also has good graph and chart making tools that will create sharp graphics that can be edited and scaled without losing quality.
  • Save your poster to a flash drive in both PDF and PowerPoint formats.
  • We do have tubes for your use. If you have a tube please do not take another.
