Creating Effective Scholarly Posters: Printing

Step-By-Step guide to creating scholarly posters

Printing Approval Form

In order to have your poster printed at no charge by MSU Document Services, you MUST:

  • Fill out the Student Poster Printing Approval Form below.
  • Have the form signed by your faculty mentor/advisor and Joe Schubert, Rodney Watkins, or other *Approved Staff* of the Camden-Carroll Library.

Getting Your Poster Printed


  • Poster must be submitted to MSU Document Services in PDF format.
  • Please allow 24 to 48 hours for printing.
  • No posters will be printed without a “signed” approval form.
  • Posters must be correct size (48'' wide by 42'' tall), formatted, and print ready when submitted to Document Services.
  • Document Services will help students as much as possible but will not convert projects to PDF, design, resize, or trim-finish poster projects.
  • Projects that do not meet print standards will be referred back to the mentor or Ray Bailey in CCL.


Step 1:
Print out the Student Poster Printing Approval Form.  Meet with your mentor and/or Joe Schubert of the Camden-Carroll Library to look over your final poster and get the approval form signed.

Step 2:
Take your finished PDF poster file (on a jump drive, CD-ROM, etc.) and your signed approval form to MSU Document Services in Allie Young Hall, Room 14.  As noted above, please allow at least 24 to 48 hours for printing.
