Where can I print my poster?

Fabric Poster
Poster can be printed on Fabric from Spoonflower. Fabric printed posters will be much easier to travel with after the program as they can be folded in a suitcase. Printing cost with rush 2 day shipping is $43. Be sure to submit your poster in time for it to be printed, shipped, and delivered no later than Wednesday, August 10.

Paper Poster
The Computer Lab in B60 Coffman* has large scale printers (HP Designjet 5000, 5500) available ($4.50 per sqft). It is highly recommendated that you print your poster at least a day in advance to avoid long lines and possible equipment issues.
*note: printing anywhere other than Coffman B60 (e.g. printing services, kinkos) will nearly double the cost of your poster
