Matte Only

[Update: We're back in the glossy business, everyone. So print those shiny posters til your heart's content.]

We're out of glossy paper again! Apparently, news of our poster printer has spread around campus, and somehow you people managed to go through 5 huge rolls of poster paper in less than a month. Anyhoo... we're in the process of ordering more, but it will be at least tuesday before any arrives, so we're down to our last 2 rolls of matte paper until then.

Help is on the way!

As I'm sure you've noticed, the lab has been extra busy lately, with everyone working on their end-of-the-semester projects. So we're scheduling extra lab consultants so that we have two people on duty in the lab in the afternoons.

Make a great Poster with PowerPoint!

Trying to create a poster to explain your research project to others? Wondering how to make a powerful visual statement? We will explore designing your poster in Power Point. We will look at page size options, font and color choices, Word Art, Autoshapes and drawing tools. Bring your poster information with you as well as your personal laptop if appropriate. We will share tips and tricks for poster formatting, show examples and discuss preparing a PDF for printing here in the Vitale Digital Media Lab or similar facility. This is a hands-on workshop. It will be held in the Class of 1968 Seminar Room (room 124) in the Information Commons.

Poster Printer FAQ

For those of you working on posters, we've created an FAQ all about the poster printer here in the lab. It includes information on everything from pricing to which fonts you should use, to where you can get your poster laminated. We've linked it in the sidebar on the right, from the main Weigle Information Commons page, and right beneath the sentence you're reading now.
