Graphics Poster Instructions

Posters may be submitted to the MSC Graphics Technology Lab for printing and/or mounting by bringing your electronic file to the Graphics Lab. You may email it to yourself, Google Drive or bring it in on a hard drive.  (No flash drives.)  

Plan to spend approximately 15 minutes with our designers to review your files for any printing issues.  If you would like design review or assistance, please allow additional time.  The MSC Graphics Technology Lab will stop accepting new posters submission 15 minutes prior to the labs closure each day.

Upon your visit, the MSC staff will have you do the following steps:

  1. Sign in on the Login Station and fill out the form
  2. Go to any open lab computer
  3. Access you email and download your project
  4. Open your project
  5. Open the "Midshipmen" shortcut on the desktop.
    Create a new folder labeled with your last name.
    Save a copy of your poster into this folder.
  6. Alert the MSC Staff that you are ready and someone will be with you as soon as they can.
  • All poster printing requests must be submitted three business days before the desired pickup date unles otherwise assigned by the MSC Graphics Technology Lab.  
  • Standard sizes for mounted posters are 40"x30", and 32"x20".  Print only (conference) posters may be as large as 56" x 40".
  • Posters must be created and submitted in final size and with high resolution images.
  • Posters turned into the MSC Graphics Technology Lab past their assigned due date will be placed in a separate “Late Queue”. This late queue will be processed and printed after all on time submissions have been completed. This is to ensure that all on time poster submissions receive priority.
  • If you believe you will have problems meeting your scheduled due date, please contact the MSC Graphics Technology Lab at With advanced notice we will do all that we can to work with you to accommodate your needs.
