Card payment or Swish
You can add funds to your printing account by card or Swish in Service Center and at the University Library. The minimum amount to top up is SEK 50. The money is taken from your printing account when you collect the prints in the printer. This means that you need to add funds in advance.

If you are going to print out a poster which your teacher has pre-ordered and which will be paid for by the university, you can send the file to email@example.com. Enter the name of the teacher as the reference.
Resolution and size of the PDF
The resolution of the pixel graphics in your document should be 150 DPI for both large formats. If you want to check whether the resolution is high enough, you can zoom to 400% in your computer to get a rough idea of what the print will look like. A test print in colour on A4, which looks good at arm’s length, also looks quite good in 70 x 100 cm when seen on a wall.
Settings for your PDF
- Select File/Print or File/Export, then Adobe PDF (or equivalent).
- Select the “High Quality Print” preset and then under “Compression” or “Images”, change to “Downsample pictures –150 dpi”. This will give your document a reasonable file size. The size of a PDF file for a poster in 70 x 100 cm format is normally between 1 and 4 MB.
