Guidelines

  • This service requires payment in advance and is available up to one hour before the Media Services office closes.
  • Send your file to us via email so we can review it.  
  • Design your poster at the exact printing dimension.
  • The default colour for printing is CYMK.
  • Use large images. Small, low resolution images from the web will be pixelated when printed.
  • Once the print job has started, changes cannot be made. Library users are responsible for the cost of that print job plus the cost of any subsequent/altered prints.
  • Library reserves the right to decline a printing request or cancel a printing job if the object may infringe copyright or contain abusive constituents.
