The staff at the graphics support services can help you with a wide range of services including:

Poster Printing

The facility is equipped with two dedicated 44" and 60" wide-format Canon colour printers (imagePROGRAF iPF9400 and PRO-4000S). We carry a wide selection of media for various print applications. These include gloss and matte paper, as well as foldable satin fabric. Clients can choose from printing scientific posters for conferences, banners, CAD drawings, GIC maps, posters, photographic art and signage.

For scientific and technical posters, fabric satin and high gloss paper are popular choices. We recommend choosing fabric satin for long-distance travel as they can be easily folded into your luggage. Our staff is here to help if you have any questions about the paper or formatting your posters.

Posters can be completed within one hour, but during conference season please allow a minimum of 1-2 business days. Production will start once your file is print-ready and the necessary information for the Service Request Form is filled out.

Fine Art Giclée Prints

To create our fine art giclée prints, we use Canon LUCIA PRO pigment-based inks, which ensures long life museum quality prints. We currently use Canon Pro Luster 260 gsm paper as well as Hahnemühle Photo Rag Matte 308 gsm paper. Sample prints are available for viewing in our shop.
