Large Format

  ~ printing tips ~

Instructional Technology Services has two different size format printers:

  • 24” – size can be set to 24″ wide but will have a small white border around the image when printing – can be laminated
  • 36” – size can be set to 36” wide but will have a small white border around the image when printing – can be laminated


Files in the following programs can be enlarged proportionately from 8.5” x 11”:

  • Acrobat
  • PowerPoint
  • Publisher
  • Word


If you already have files formatted for large format printing (high resolution, large size), they can be printed from the following programs:

  • Acrobat
  • Illustrator
  • Photoshop
  • PowerPoint

Colors may vary when printing from the large format printers.  Blue is especially prone to printing with a large amount of magenta in it.  Therefore we recommend using the following codes for dark blue: RGB 0- 86-172 or CMYK 95-73-0-0.

Creating posters using PowerPoint:

  • Using sizing listed above
  • Maximum PowerPoint length is 56” – for larger length posters, cut your required dimensions in ½ and we will double them to print, for example  (desired size = 36 x 72, set up page as 18 x 36 and we print at 200%)
  • You can also search online for free PowerPoint templates to download, being sure to keep the maximum dimensions in mind


Two ways to input data:

  • Insert text box and type in information – you can right mouse click on the box to adjust the box size or format the text box to allow for the wrap feature


  • Copy and paste information from another program by selecting desired data, copy and use the “paste special” feature to put into PowerPoint.
  • The data can then be moved/resized to fit
  • Use the zoom feature (100%) to determine font size


  • Print time varies depending on ink color, usage and size.  Please allow 30 min to 1 hour for set up and print during normal times (2 hours during high demand times)


  • Up to 38” wide
  • Poster must dry before being laminated – at least 30 minutes, preferably 2 hours
