Use our poster printing and related services (scanning, cutting, laminating) for your research and teaching. We create posters and placards from PDF documents in the common formats A2 to A0. Different types of paper are available and the posters can be laminated, if required. Please refer to the section "Things to know" for information on printing time, pickup times and quantities (maximum number of pieces).
