Reprint Policy

  1. If we have made an error we will reprint the poster. However, if you make an error, we won't reprint the poster if it has already been printed.
  2. If your poster has not yet been printed, you can change the poster, but ALWAYS change the name of change print file. For example, for the file “SansIEEE_EJS3S.pdf”, the changed file should be named “SansIEEE_EJS3S-2.pdf”. Reply to the same email as the original request… do NOT send a new email to

Lost Carry Tube Policy

  1. If you lose a borrowed Carry Tube you must replace it
  2. The University Bookstore sells poster tubes

If we can't print the poster, UVA Printing Services, in the back of the Bookstore, will print up to 24×36 inch posters. Off-grounds poster printing can be done at Staples or a commercial printer.
