Large format printing will be charged to the printing internal billing number you provide.

Printing:  $5.50/square foot

Proofs:   $11.00/proof 

(Reduced-size proofs from the large format printer are suggested to ensure quality and accuracy prior to printing a full size poster. Note: Print & Copy Services is not responsible for accurate color match if a color proof is not requested prior to final printing.)

Mounting: between $8 and $15 for standard sizes

Laminating: $5.00 per linear foot

To calculate project cost for a poster 30" wide by & 42" long:

  • Calculate size in sq. inches (multiply width by length): 30" x 42" = 1260"
  • Convert to sq. ft. (divide by 144): 1260" / 144 =  8.75 sq. ft.
  • Round up to nearest whole number: 9 sq. ft.
  • Calculate cost (multiply sq. ft. by $5.50): 9 x $5.50 = $49.50
  • Add cost of proof: $11.00 + $49.50 = $60.50
