Large format posters and temporary signs

We offer a large-format inkjet printing and laminating service for posters presenting research, for University staff and PhD students only.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current climate and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we are unfortunately not able to operate our poster service as we did before.

We appreciate that this can be difficult and challenging for everyone involved but with our staff currently working remotely this just isn't possible..

Poster templates are available below.

We also print temporary signage for events. You can create signs and posters in the University visual identity using the signage templates at the bottom of this page.

You can send your poster to us at or upload it to us by clicking below. Finished posters can be collected from the University Post Room (see map).

Upload your poster

Poster printing will take three working days

The three working days will be from the date / time submitted.

Once you have submitted your file it is added to a queue. If you spot any mistakes or need to make any changes you can submit your file again, however please be aware that there will be a charge for this.

PLEASE NOTE: For larger quantities of posters needed or batches such as 30+, you will need to allow extra time for production and delivery, this is likely to take 5 x working days.
