Print & Scan


Specifications, hints & tips

  • Embedded images should have a resolution of 300dpi (dots per inch).
  • The poster is printed on a paper roll with a width of 914mm. Thereby the content is enlarged to 900mm width. This means that compared to an A0 format with a width of 841 mm, an enlargement of 1.07015 takes place. If you would like to have an identical representation true to scale, you should reduce your template by this factor.
  • Make sure to check your PDF file in full view (entire page) and with 400% magnification. Pay particular attention to the image quality of the logos and graphics.

  • The printed poster will always have a narrow white border, even if your artwork goes right to the edge. It is printed on satin photo paper.
  • Avoid a colored background if possible.
  • Design your posters so that the text is still legible on an A4 sheet (font size at least 6 points). Only then is the font size comfortably legible on an A0 printout from a distance of one metre.
  • Keep in mind that the printer displays colors differently than the monitor.
  • The printer offers photo-realistic quality and the paper used is UV-resistant, but colour nuances can still occur.
  • Combine the text passages into several small blocks instead of making one large text block. This way you avoid complications.

  • Experiments are at the expense of the customer, this includes in particular PDF files that have not passed the PosterCheck. In case of obvious printer errors, no costs will be charged.
  • If you would like to receive your poster in a protective cardboard box (Fr. 4.--), please inform your computer supervisor when placing your print order.
  • It may only be printed for university purposes.
