Student Poster Printing Services


The large format (poster) printing service is for university-related activities with academic and/or extracurricular purposes only (and not for marketing). More specifically, faculty and individual student can request a print only for class-related research and/or class assignment (and not teaching) materials. As such, for posters being presented off-campus, the university official logo must be clearly displayed on the poster being printed itself. Printing for personal use other than those of university-related activities is not allowed.

The service is available for NSU college students, student clubs and organization, and/or NSU faculty members only. NSU departments and colleges are required to use the printing services of the NSU Copy Center. This service does not apply to NSU University School constituents.

All materials will be reviewed for policy compliance and for NSU logo usage to ensure its compliance with the University's Graphic Identity Standards and Policies. Please view our logo usage guidelines. A copy of an official college logo can be obtained by contacting the program office of your respective college/school, or you can download the generic NSU logo here.

Any requests with materials that contain depictions of pornography, offensive, excessive violence, illegal and abusive and/or any outright denigration of race or religion and matters that threaten one's interest, and violation of any copyright law will be refused.
