Poster Printing

UR and Pro-Copy teamed up for the 2011 year to provide poster presenters with a discounted price for this symposium. The discounted price for a 36" x 48" poster was $35 plus a $3 rip fee, plus any additional incurred charges. Students submitted their poster as a PDF to avoid a $15 conversion fee. Please review the flyer for other stipulations and the procedure for printing at Pro-Copy.
