Depending on the size, the average poster can cost around $70-100. Options are usually matte or glossy.
a) Before you send a poster to the printers, it is recommended that you convert your file to PDF.
Consult this checklist first.
b) Need to convert your files to the right colour settings? Use a program like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat Pro to convert your poster colours, so that the original colours remain true.
Pro tip: Print out and assemble a large full-size draft using plain paper sheets (8.5 x 11), to see if there are any alignment, colour, font, or image quality issues. This also makes it easier to sport tapas spot typos.
Your U of T department:
Ask your department if there is free or reduced cost poster printing available - if available, this is often a bit cheaper than a print shop.
