ITP Poster Printer

The Immunology Training Program (through the Carter Immunology Center) provides free poster printing to regular participants of the Immunology Training Program events such as Research in Progress, CIC Seminars, and Summer Journal Club.

Basic Process:

Heads up

If you plan to have your poster printed, please contact posters_itg@virginia.edu within 10-14 days ahead of your deadline. This is simply a courtesy that allows us to make sure that someone is here to process your request. By no means will you be obligated to print anything if the deadline comes near and you decide you don’t need a poster.

Create the slide

Create your poster in PowerPoint or whatever software. Make sure you define your dimensions in >File >Page Setup.

Proof the slide

Save the final version as a PDF. Verify that all of your symbols are correct. Proof everything closely. We will not proof your slide for you.

Email the slide

When ready, email the PDF as an attachment to gill@virginia.edu. In the body of the email, you must provide the desired dimensions of the poster.

Processing

Printing will be done within 2 full business days. We will send you an email when the job is complete.

More details:

  1. Remember to send the file in PDF format.
  2. Two full business days is the official turnaround time. However, if you have communicated your needs to us and we have the opportunity to expedite your request, turnaround may be sooner.
