CEES is happy to support the printing of posters across the TAMIU campus supporting research endeavors. We have printed over 300 since 2010. However, there are a few basic rules that you need to follow to guarantee service.
(1) All requests need to be initiated through a TAMIU faculty member. Students who show up at CEES (LVB 346) requesting service will be refused unless their faculty mentor sends an e-mail to Dr. Tobin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Faculty members are always welcome to print their own work but also must e-mail Dr. Tobin first to gain approval. Approval is required at least one week before when you will need the poster to allow CEES to plan its activities accordingly.
(2) CEES prints out posters (36 X 48”) for only national, international, and selected local research conferences. CEES does not print posters for class projects or any other university functions such as program marketing. For the LVB and Pathways conferences special instructions will be provided by Dr. Tobin to those who have students that have been designated as presenting a research project.
(3) Generally, posters are printed on regular plain paper. We can print posters on glossy paper for national and international conferences if requested.
(4) Once a poster is approved a student or faculty member needs to bring the file (PowerPoint, PDF, Photoshop, TIFF) physically to CEES on a flash drive for inspection. We request that this is done at least 48 hours before you need the poster again so that CEES can plan its workflow accordingly.
(5) Please include in your acknowledgements the following statement. “We thank the Center for Earth and Environmental Studies at TAMIU for printing this poster.”
