  • It is the patron's responsibility to ensure the poster is print ready when sent to the library. Once the poster is printed, no refunds will be given and any reprints will be charged to the patron. If there is an obvious problem with the poster, the library will notify the patron that the poster cannot be printed until the patron reviews the poster.  If the poster is created on a Mac, please view it on a PC before submitting for printing due to formatting and font issues. ­
  • The poster to be printed must be clearly marked or the poster will not be printed. One of the dimensions of the poster must be 24", 36", or 42". Staff will not edit any posters.

Planning Your Poster:

  • All NYMC posters must follow the guidelines found in the NYMC Style Manual which dictates use of the appropriate logos and colors. Questions about the guidelines or requests for review of your poster for adherence to the guidelines can be directed to the Office of Public Relations 914-594-4536 or Failure to comply with the guidelines may result in the need to correct and resubmit your file or to reschedule your appointment.  (Note: the templates on this guide adhere to the guidelines)

  • Maximum size: 42" high and 100" wide.

  • Patrons should plan their posters carefully, being especially mindful of software limitations, eg. make sure that high resolution images are used.
  • Consultations prior to your appointment may be scheduled to assist with the creation of your poster. This is a separate appointment.
  • During poster printing appointment staff members cannot provide design help or make major corrections or modifications. If corrections are needed prior to printing the final version, another appointment may be necessary.
