NCS has a large format printer capable of printing poster-sized documents up to 36" wide. This resource is available to faculty, staff and students of the College of Science for conference or seminar presentations or other College related events.
To use this service, please submit an NCS Help Desk ticket as far in advance as possible (http://ncs.science.sjsu.edu/helpdesk) so we can ensure we have the supplies needed to accommodate your request. Files should be submitted in pdf format and can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered to staff in DH 33 on a thumb drive. Because this service can be extremely popular at times and because our printer can sometimes be temperamental, please allow 2 -3 business days for processing. For classes or conferences with requests of 10 or more posters, please allow us at least 5 business days to complete your order.
For the best results, please refrain from using dark colored, solid backgrounds; the ink saturates the paper and results in the poster having a puckered texture.
Although this service is offered to personnel within the College of Science free of charge, the Dean's Office asks that users printing posters for events funded by a grant or other outside funds reimburse the College for these costs as follows. Unfortunately, due to increased requests, we also need to charge for reprints due to user error. These prices are just enough to cover our costs.
We also reserve the right to charge for last minute print jobs.
