Printing Posters – How To

Navigate to the University of Reading’s own Design & Print Studio website. DPS have a step-by-step guide here. The form to order a poster for printing can be found here.

Make sure you plan ahead! There is usually a quick turnaround, but it can take several days to print a poster during a busy period.
