Large-format printing is a service offered by Library Business Services, located on the 1st Floor of the Perry-Castañeda Library. This resource is available to UT Faculty, Staff, and Students, as well as to visiting conference attendees and presenters, for their academic poster needs.
Guidelines for Submission:
- All files must be in PDF format.
- The dimensions of the poster must not exceed 42” x 60”.
- The poster must be less than 50% color-saturated, with the background set to Transparent (not to White).
Please email files compliant with the above criteria to firstname.lastname@example.org. Files larger than 15MB must be delivered to Library Business Services on a USB. We do not accept files larger than 40MB.
Library Business Services is not responsible for spelling or graphics errors on submitted files. You will be charged for the original order and any re-prints. LBS reserves the right to return a poster for revision if bright or dark colors account for a significant portion of the poster. Note that all poster printing is done through a PC, and that MAC/PC compatibility issues are possible. Each computer and monitor represent colors slightly differently—color variation is normal, and colors on your printed poster may not be an exact match to the colors on your screen.
NOTE ON COPYRIGHT: If you plan to include any UT logos or trademarks in your poster, you must obtain authorization for use of appropriate logos from the Office of Brand, Trademark & Licensing. You can apply for approval through this online portal: https://portal.trademarks.utexas.edu. You can direct any questions to email@example.com.
Please allow 1-2 business days for your poster to be printed. Library Business Services staff will reach out to you via email when your poster is ready to pick up.

Sales tax is not included in the above pricing.
Payment for posters are accepted via Inter-Departmental Transfer or via Credit Card online. While we do not accept cash, we accept electronic funds transfer and electronic checks.
For a visual explanation of “linear foot” pricing, please see below:
EX: if you were to lay a poster sized 32” x 46” over the above infographic, it would extend into the purple section, between 36.01” and 48”, and therefore would be considered 4 linear feet, costing $40 for a UT EID Holder or $44 for a Non-UT Affiliate.
NOTICE TO FACULTY: If your department would like to pay for student posters via an Inter-Departmental Transfer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet showing the full 10-digit account number and a list of approved students, formatted as below:
