Poster plotter


We now have a poster plotter to which you can print presentations, maps, blueprints, and more oversized print jobs. 

3¢/square inch with 24" and 36" wide paper available (print out up to 72" in length). Sample sizes and prices:

  • 12" x 24" $8.64
  • 24" x 24" $17.28
  • 24" x 36" $25.92
  • 24" x 48" $34.56
  • 24" x 60" $43.20
  • 24" x 72" $51.84


The plotter uses the same Pharos system as our other printers; simply select the Newman Plotter from the list of printers on any of our public computers. Swipe your Hokie Passport at the Newman Plotter Release Station on the second floor, select the correct print job from the list, then wait for your printout to complete. 

Use PDF documents for best results

Because there are no refunds for misprinted jobs, we strongly recommend printing only PDF documents (convert any other format to PDF). The Acrobat print window will display exactly how your output will fit on the selected page size and PDFs more accurately show how colors will appear on the paper.
