Digital Media Center Services

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.
  • Submit your presentation in PowerPoint, PDF, jpeg, .psd, .ai, and .indd.

Design your own template or use one of the branded templates from the Mount Sinai Brand Center.

Once your poster is complete and ready for printing, e-mail your file to digital-media-center@mssm.edu.

If your file is larger than 10 MB, you can send it via a file-sharing program such as DropBox, BOX, or WeTransfer, or bring the file to the Digital Media Center, located at 1425 Madison Avenue, 10th Floor, Room 10-25.

Reprints: If an error occurs during the printing process and the error is attributable to the Digital Media Center, we are 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. Contact us for pricing.

We offer fine-art quality 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. We can create an original website for you using the Mount Sinai-approved WordPress template. We also provide website maintenance services, as well as tutorials on how to self-update. Contact us for pricing.
