Digital Media Center

The Digital Media Center, located within the Department of Neuroscience, provides creative solutions and services to Neuroscience faculty and staff, as well as to other departments within the Mount Sinai Health System.

We print posters on a first-come, first-served basis. Before printing your poster, follow the below guidelines:

  • Know the size of the board on which your poster will be affixed
  • Set the dimensions of your poster to the size that you would like it printed
  • Create your file on a Mac or PC using PowerPoint, PDF, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, or Adobe Illustrator, on one of the following templates, if desired:

Cyan motif – h 36 x w:56
Cyan motif – h:36 x w:36
Magenta motif – h:36 x w:56
Magenta motif – h:35x w:48

Once your poster is complete and ready for printing, e-mail your poster's digital file to digital-media-center@mssm.edu or bring the file to the Digital Media Center, located at 1425 Madison Avenue, 10th floor, Room 10-25. Please indicate which type of paper you would like your poster printed on (glossy, matte, canvas, fine art (archival inkjet paper), or banner vinyl).

Reprints: If an error occurs during the printing process and the error is attributable to the Digital Media Center, we will be happy to reprint your poster. If, however, the error resides in the digital file, the new print will be treated as a second chargeable poster. 

Our services offer a blend of traditional photography and modern photojournalism which can be adjusted to your needs. We shoot from the lab bench to the operating room and everything in between including event coverage, portraiture, and architectural photography. 

We offer archival quality, fine art printing services. Our work can be seen throughout the Mount Sinai Health System and includes curating and printing all images on display at the annual "Art of the Brain" exhibition.

All active research labs at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai need a web presence. Because some principle investigators do not have the time to develop their own websites, we can create an original website using the Mount Sinai approved WordPress template. We also provide website maintenance services.

We offer the following digital media services:

  • Poster design 
  • Photo-quality color printing
  • Black and white and color photocopies
  • Flyer and brochure design and printing
  • Scanning, including film and transparencies (up to 8 inches x 10 inches)
