Printer driver software is available for some of these devices, allowing them to be used as printers. If you are interested, please contact help@physics.wisc.edu to see if it is available for your platform.

Posters and other large format printing

The Physics Department has a large format printer for producing posters. It is an Epson Surecolor T5270D UltraChrome XD Inkjet Dual Roll Printer with 2880×1440 dpi resolution. The paper width is 36 inches and can be cut to any length. We have the usual 20# bond paper as well as thicker “enhanced matte” paper. Please send help@physics.wisc.edu a PDF file and let us know where you would like the printed poster to be delivered (in Chamberlin).  Allow one day for printing.

College Library provides large format printing services.

Chemistry also provides large format printing services, payable via a funding number.

Printers and Scanners in the Library

The Physics Library has printers and scanners available for use for a nominal fee.
