Scientific Poster Printing

The CRC poster printing services are available to researchers who were awarded VICTR Resources. The CRC poster printing service is located in 2525 West End Avenue, Suite 600.

Posters should be submitted in their finalized form by email to victrposters@vumc.org. To be eligible for the VICTR poster printing service, your printing request must be submitted at least 48 hours (2 business days) in advance of when the poster is needed to ensure your request can be fulfilled. Posters will be ready for pick-up two business days after submission. Please allow additional time prior to large conferences (up to 4 days).
