Poster Printing

SUNY Geneseo offers poster printing services to faculty, staff and students. There is a fee of $8 per linear foot (42" width) for heavyweight and standard paper; $12 per foot for standard glossy and satin paper; and $14 per foot for high glossy paper.* Posters intended to be kept for long term display should be printed on satin and high glossy paper. All files should be at least 150 pixels per inch for acceptable quality. All prints require advance notice of three (3) business days. The Duplicating Center only can accept cash or checks.  

*The poster printing cost for external customers (alumni/retirees) will be 30% higher than the cost for internal customers (e.g., if cost for internal customers is $8, the cost for external customers is $10.40).
