Printing Posters on the Plotter in 4-515

Many of you will need to use a plotter to print a poster for class or a conferences. We strive to keep them working and ready to go but they can be a fussy machines. Try not to wait until the night before your plane leaves to attempt to print your poster.

Please follow the instructions on the wall and/or check with Malissa or Tripp if you need help. 

The poster plotter (HP DesignJet Z6200) is installed in the Graduate Student Computer Lab, Building 4, Room 515. You will need a key-card to access this space. These can be checked out (with a check or money order deposit) from Ashley McCullough in Room 2-225 M/F 1-4, W 9-12/1-4.

Plotter Manual

The plotter can print up to 42 inches wide. You can, however, use 36" paper. Many conference posters are 48x36. In this case, 36" paper is better because you do not have to cut any off. Another option is to resize your poster to fit the 42" paper. 

You can use the plain paper that is currently on the roll. If you want glossy paper, you should check with your major professor/lab/other group to see what they have or buy a roll with other people. You can then change out the paper to print your poster. If you need help with what to order, see Malissa. Currently, we recommend B&H Photo selling HP Paper ( 36" Gloss, 42" Gloss, 36" Plain, 42" Plain)

Please monitor the levels of toner and printhead life and alert Rodney, especially in times of heavy use. We usually have extra toner and printheads but ordering can take several days.

The old 36" plotter in the GIS lab is out of ink and is being retired.

Planning ahead is always recommended but we realize that it is not always possible. If you are in a jam and need a poster, below are some pay alternatives for you. This is not a complete list - just a few places on campus and in Athens where you can pay for a poster.
