Mann Library Computing Center has 3 Canon color plotters located in the Stone Computing Center (map it) which can print in b&w or color on matte or glossy paper. Poster printing is available until 1 hour before the Help Desk closes. Please note: Help Desk hours vary from the hours of the library. See Stone Help Desk and Plotter Printing hours page for details, including exceptions during breaks.
Please see our information on course poster registration if you would like to register a class to print posters.
- Plotter jobs must be submitted from the Stone Center Help Desk. You will not be able to send a job to the plotters from any other computer. To print, you will need a copy of your file that has been saved on a USB drive.
- Stone Center Operators will check your settings before printing. Additional adjustments may be necessary. Use of these plotters requires the assistance of the Lab Operator. It is the responsibility of the patron to ensure that the document is formatted correctly before it is sent to the printer. If there is a layout issue, the patron is still responsible for the payment of that print job. Patrons are NOT responsible for misprints due to software or hardware failures/incompatibilities.
To ensure that your file is properly formatted, please see our poster printing tips for recommended settings.
