Forms of payment:

  • Billiken Bucks
    You can add funds to your Billiken bucks account online through mySLU at auth.slu.edu via the tile labeled SLU Cards eAccounts.
  • Debit or Charge Card
  • University Fund number
    If the department is paying for your poster, we need a fund number to charge it to before you pick up your poster.

Turn Around times:

  • Posters are printed while you wait (first come - first served).
  • During high traffic times, it is better to submit your poster a week ahead of time.
    (April is an example of a high traffic time with countless conferences, final projects and symposiums.)
  • Submitting your poster early also allows for time to correct possible problems.
    (This can be very important if this is your first poster print.)

If creating a poster for a conference, please see the below Conference Requirements:

  • Verify the maximum size poster allowed at the conference or symposium
  • Create a custom-sized Power-Point slide to fit size:
  • Under the Design tab in PPT, click Page Setup
  • Enter the width and height you want for the poster

Note: 56 inches is the largest dimension you can have in a PowerPoint slide.
For any print larger than 56 inches, set both height and width to half the size of your poster.
You can then print the file at twice it's dimensions.

Getting your file to us:

  • Bring your file to one of the two locations:
    • Academic Tech Commons in the Pius Library - 314-977-3103
    • Tech Service Commons South in Caroline Hall room 202 - 314-977-7290 
  • Save your poster as a final PDF for printing.
    • Under the File tab in PPT, click on Save As, and then choose .PDF.
    • If you create your poster on a Mac, be sure the .PDF is not converted to 8 1/2" X 11"
