Poster Printing Services

In the past, the communications office was able to assist with preparation of posters for a fee, but we are no longer able to provide this service. A number of options on campus make it possible for researchers to get their posters professionally printed through other channels.

Several services on campus exist to assist with poster printing and related needs:

Note: The UT library can also assist with digital preparations of slides. To learn more, contact library staff at: 512-495-4130.

For undergraduates: Please visit this website to learn more about additional poster printing for undergraduate students.

Scientific Illustration and Design

Austin is home to a number of professionals who specialize in scientific illustration and design. The communications and media office maintains a small list of people who have offered to work with the College's scientists for a fee. To be added to our database of scientific illustrators or for contact information for one of these professionals, please contact Director of Communications Christine Sinatra.
