This information will be updated for 2021. Please check back in March for poster printing process instructions.


  • Students should design their poster to be oriented horizontally 48″x36″ using the NC State Brand approved templates.
  • Poster Template 48×36 – Brand Approved
  • We recommend using the NC State brand approved color palette
  • Scanning resolution should be between 75 and 150 dpi. Lower resolutions will result in poor quality images.
  • Please allow more time for printing during research symposiums and end of semester projects.
  • If you run out of time (ie. miss the 24 hour window) you may print your poster at Wolf Express in Talley or the NCSU libraries.
    • The OUR will not reimburse students/dept for printing costs associated with poster printing.
  • You do NOT have to have use our poster printing; you are more than welcome to print elsewhere at your expense.
