Presentations: Printing & Archiving


Posters are typically printed on 42" wide paper rolls. You may need to trim your poster to the desired size after printing. 

Where to print?

ECU Informational Technology and Computing Services (ITCS)

ITCS does offer printing services to students on main campus, however the poster must be for conferences and research events only.  The conference or research event name must be included on the poster.  More information can be found on the ITCS information page.

Laupus Library

Laupus Library can print posters during Computer Lab operating hours.  Posters are printed on 42" wide rolls.  Either the width OR length of your poster may exceed 42", but not both.  More information about Laupus Library's printing services can be found on their information page. 


Why archive?

A lot of time and work goes into the creation of a research poster, however they are typically one-time use items; once the conference or presentation is over, the poster is usually either hung on a wall or recycled.  These "grey" publications often have value as citable items later in the lifecycle of research. 

Archiving your poster allows you to:

  • Point to a permanent location for your poster
  • Include official links on reports, CVs, etc.

Where to archive?

The ScholarShip is a digital archive for the scholarly output of the ECU community. Its mission is to capture, preserve and make available the intellectual output of East Carolina University's faculty, staff, and students.

If you are interested in archiving a poster from RCAW please contact the Scholarly Communication Department for assistance.
