The Bishop Mueller Library now offers large poster printing to all Briar Cliff departments. We can print on a variety of sizes and printing materials to accommodate your academic or extracurricular needs. With generous pricing, our new printer can print up to 5 ft. wide!
About Poster Printing
The Briar Cliff Library wants students to not only be able to use traditional media, but to also experience new media technologies. That is why we have purchased a Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9400. This printer can print on several types of materials up to five feet wide! Whether you have created your own poster, or one our student mentor has created, we will print on your choice of paper. Poster printing inquires must have an appointment with at least three days advance notice to print.
To set up a consultation appointment, please call or visit the Bishop Mueller Library.
Before printing a poster on the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9400, the Library recommends that all users print a "proof" of their own. This is not included in the printing cost. A proof is a full-sized print for you to proofread. The Library suggest printing the poster on legal sized paper prior to final printing for this purpose. Any error beyond the proof is not Bishop Mueller Library liability.
In order to print on the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9400, the user must have a .jpg, .png (image files) or .ppt or .pptx (Powerpoint) files. The Library requires that you bring these files to the library on a USB flash drive or send via email to the Head of Public and Research Services. The Library will then turn your file into a PDF file to print via a Photoshop plugin. This ensures color accuracy. (Please Note: accurate color printing may not match the exact colors seen on your computer screen.)
