Poster Printing

The Large Format Printer at the AU Library is only for academic use by current AU faculty, staff and students. Printing is not self-service and requires staff assistance. Each print can take about 20 minutes with long queues during midterms and finals. Please plan ahead to use this service.

Submitting a PDF file to print

All files must be submitted as a PDF using our poster printing request form. Once a submitted file is approved, we ask for a 48 hour turnaround for any submitted print request. Please remember to set your correct size before filling your poster with content! We will not edit your poster to fit a desired size or complete any other design work.

Walk-in print jobs may be accommodated based on staff availability and printer demand. You will need to bring a valid AUID and a completed PDF file of your work.


All of our paper is HP Glossy Photo Paper, and the prices are charged by the length of the final poster. The price per linear foot varies by the width of the paper roll. Current prices are:

  • 24 inch wide roll - $4.50 per foot
  • 36 inch wide roll - $4.75 per foot
  • 42 inch wide roll - $5.00 per foot

Payment is taken in EagleBucks only. Money can be added to your AUID on the EagleBucks Portal.
