  • Printing Posters

    There are several poster-printing options available to us in Ocean Sciences (OS). Please see the suggestions below: 


    On-campus Printing:


    Large Format Printer

    You must contact Chemistry to set up an appointment to print your poster. Contact Karen Meece at least 24-48 hours in advance with your Name, Department, Preferred Date and Time.  This printer is a self-serve printer and it is available for printing M-F from 9am-3pm in one hour blocks.  You must complete the following Printing Poster form for Ocean Sciences, prior to printing your poster in the Chemistry department. The form can also be found on the OS website, or you may stop by the department office to fill it out in person. Be sure to have a back up plan for printing in case the Large Format Printer is unavailable. The costs incurred for printing the poster is the responsibility of the Faculty sponsor, not the Department of Ocean Sciences.
