Sizing Specifications

You should already know your poster file's dimensions (height and width) before selecting one of the scaling options below. The largest poster we can print is 42" x  708". Refer to Our Maximum Printable Dimensions section for more detailed information. If you have questions, contact posters@abraxas.wustl.edu before submitting a poster order.

Please answer the question below on how you want the margin to appear should this happen. Per our FAQ, we do not trim posters.

If my posters ends up with a margin on the left/right side, please:
