Through funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, Dr. Keefe was able to purchase a wide format color printer and laminator to support research activities. Our printing services are available, at reduced rates, to all MSVU faculty, staff and students.

The Steps to Printing Your Poster:

1. Carefully review your poster, to ensure it is “print ready”. E-mail the electronic file to at least five days in advance of when you require the final version.

2. Once received, we will provide an estimate of the cost, if requested.

3. We will review the file.
(a) If it meets “print-ready” requirements, a small-scale proof will be provided. You will be required to view and sign the proof before full-scale printing will proceed.
(b) If your file does not meet “print-ready” requirements, staff will return the file to you with suggestions.

4. Once finalized, we will print your poster and advise when it is ready. We request that you arrange for pick-up, as we do not offer delivery service.

5. When you collect your poster, you will be asked to pay for the poster*.

*cash, cheque made payable to Mount Saint Vincent University, or via internal transfer.
