Poster Printing

The HRZ offers the possibility to plot posters in different sizes.

By using an HP DesignJet Z6200 and an HP DesignJet Z6100ps plotter the HRZ offers the possibility to produce colour prints up to DIN-A0+. These inkjet colour plotters have a resolution of up to 2400dpi and can process both HPGL/2 and PostScript (but not Encapsulated PostScript).

A valid Uni-ID is required to use the HRZ services. Further information can be found on the website of the HRZ under Identity Management.

Attention: At the moment you can only plot with payment via the institute. Cash payments are not possible.

If you need one or more posters, please fill out the form Plot Order/Credit and send it to the HRZ with the button Send Plot Order. Please print out the e-mail you receive and hand it in, filled in and signed by your institute's budget manager, when you pick up the poster at the IT-Helpdesk in the HRZ.


Provide Posters

Files smaller than 20 MB should be sent by e-mail to [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]

Larger files can be provided via GigaMove (Gigamove). You can do this by logging in with your Uni-ID and uploading your poster via "Provide File". After the poster has been uploaded, you will be offered to forward the link via e-mail. Click on this link and send the email to [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.] .

Supported Software:
If possible, we would like to receive your files as pdf-files. We can also work with files that have been created with the following software:
PowerPoint (version of 2003 and 2010 – caution when using different versions, there is a high probability of shifted formatting! Please do not integrate .emf-graphics.), CorelDraw.

Poster size:
We will scale your poster according to the size that you request.

In case you do not want a pre-defined scaling (e.g in the case of a true-scale map) or specific dimensions for width and height, please let us know in the "comment section" of your plot order.

We print special formats by request. The smallest print format is A2.

Time schedule:
Incoming plot orders will usually be processed the following working day. High-gloss posters that need to be laminated will need one more day to be produced (see "Poster Lamination"). Delays should be expected on bridge days. You will be notified through e-mail or by phone call once your poster is completed. You can then pick up your poster during the working hours of the IT-Helpdesk.

We can also laminate your poster for you.
If you wish to order a laminated poster, please mention it in the comment section of your plot order.
