Our Towson Location!

Highest Quality. PhD Posters Baltimore uses the same photo-gloss paper and HP printers as the big boys. We may be cheap, but we don't compromise on quality. Most of our customers print research posters, but we can print other types of posters as well! Examples include sports posters, maps, and photo collages.

Convenient Local Pickup. PhD Posters Baltimore offers convenient order pickup service from the Johns Hopkins Medicine campus. Posters are dropped off at 10am on weekdays. We can also ship directly to your home or event location. Click HERE to view our pickup location on a map. Additional pickup instructions and details are included in your order confirmation email.

Easy Online Ordering. Start your order and upload your poster file as a PDF or PowerPoint; pay directly online to complete your order. The whole online ordering process takes about 5 minutes. If only research was this simple!

Extended Ordering Hours. With first-hand experience conducting research, we understand that you want to put the most current data on your poster and that new data may come late in the day. If you don't make the 6:30pm ordering deadline, we accept a few rush orders each evening between 6:30pm and 9pm that will be printed that night and ready for pickup at 10am the next morning.

Quick Turnaround Time. Turnaround time is generally 10am the next day for a single poster submitted as a PDF (PowerPoint files add 1 additional day). During busy conference seasons, PDF turnaround may be two days. We print posters in the order in which they are received.

Current turnaround time for a new order. Choose "Local Pickup", and then scroll down to select the Baltimore Branch. When selected, the turnaround time will then appear below our branch name.

Formatting Tips. We offer useful and practical tips for designing your poster so that you don't have to figure it all out on your own. Please visit our "How-To" tab at the top of the page to ensure your poster is looking its best!

The most common formatting issues are uneven margins and low resolution images. To prevent uneven margins, please ensure that one dimension of your poster (either length or width) is 36" or 42". To check the resolution of your poster, open in PPT or Adobe Acrobat and zoom to 100% (or if you made your poster at 1/2 size, zoom accordingly to 200%). The quality of the images on your screen at this magnification is the same as the quality that will print.

Conference Pickup. Check conference pickup to see if we've already set up a custom order portal for you. We provide on-site delivery to all our events. Organizing a conference or event and want to work with us? Email Theresa at

About Baltimore Branch. The Baltimore branch of PhD Posters is owned and operated by Theresa Barberi. In 2014, Theresa was working as a Postdoc in Baltimore and discovered a lack of affordable or convenient poster printing options in the Baltimore area. Thus, she endeavored to start the Baltimore branch of PhD Posters, which opened in February 2015. Theresa continues to work in academic research during the day. As a researcher and poster presenter herself, she is well-acquainted with your needs and concerns for poster printing and pick up. If you have any questions, feel free to email her directly at
