Important information for submitting a printing request:

  • Fill out all fields on the Poster Request Form (Lines #1-#11), especially your name, contact information, and payment method. Incorrect Oracle account numbers and payment methods can delay printing. For pricing information, please go to 'Pricing and Payment'.

  • The date needed is the date that the poster needs to be picked up, not the date of the event. It is best to set the date needed at least one day before any events. Also, list the time the poster needs to be picked up, as needed.

  • The Poster Center does not adjust poster sizing. If the poster file and poster form measurements are not the same ratio, there will be a delay in printing.

  • Upload your poster file (PDF/PPTX only). Last minute poster corrections will also cause a delay in printing. Please check the poster file before submitting.


We do NOT accept poster files submitted in person.

Posters should be submitted at least 2 days in advance to provide a time cushion for all likelihoods.
