Poster Printing

We expect a high number of requests to print posters for the conference beginning 12/12. College logos are available on the CEOAS website.

  • CEOAS Research Publishing in Burt 166 provides printing for faculty on the 42” plotter. This is a first-in, first-out queue, and we are generally open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are using PowerPoint, please also provide a PDF file, in case there are PowerPoint problems. You will need an index number before bringing in your file. You can place your file on Valis/scratch/crystal/AGU2016, bring it to Publishing, or email a file under 10 MB to pubs@coas.oregonstate.edu
  • You can also print the poster yourself on the 42” plotter in the Digital Media Lab (Burt 170) and put your index number on the sign-up sheet located in that room. This is a good option if you need to print outside normal business hours.
  • Graduate students with an index number can send files to pubs@coas.oregonstate.edu or use the Digital Media Lab plotter. All students can use Student Multimedia Services in the Valley Library at no charge for posters; it requires lead-time for posters to be printed.
  • Alternative locations for printing aside from the Digital Media Lab are: Kinkos (541-757-8127), located on 9th Street, Corvallis. They charge 7.25/sq.ft. on matte/bond paper (max width of 40”); and NW Graphic Imaging (541-753-9406), located on 3rd Street, Corvallis. They charge 6.50/sq.ft. on semi-gloss only paper (max width of 48”). NW Graphic Imaging is a vendor through OSU and is set up to take your index number for charging purposes. NW Graphic Imaging requires 3 days lead time for poster printing.
  • On certain days, the number of AGU posters might also impact how long it takes to replace printer toner cartridges in Burt and Weniger, although we intend to replace as soon as possible. Since the printers are networked, an alternative to waiting is to select another printer to which to send jobs.
