Please visit the KSL Poster Printing Service website for details and Poster Printing Calendar to schedule your appointment AFTER reading the instructions posted below.

For your printing appointment, you will go to the Freedman Center (1st floor of the Kelvin Smith Library).

There will be a $5 CHARGE for missed appointments or if you are more than 10 minutes late.  This charge will be added to your library account as a fine.  If you cannot make your appointment, or need to reschedule you must call (216-368-8689) or email to cancel at least 12 hours in advance without penalty. Appointment cancellations cannot be made using the online calendar.



There will be no same-day appointments taken using the online calendar. If you have a special need, please contact directly to see if you can be accommodated in the day's print schedule. Check the calendar to make sure that there are potential openings that day before contacting us.

  • Choose your preferred calendar view (day, week, or month).
  • Navigate to the day you would like to schedule your appointment.
  • See what times are available (look for a grey box) and decide what works with your schedule.
  • You should book an hour-long appointment if you need a draft (regular paper) and final print (gloss or semi-gloss paper). You should book a half hour appointment if you just want to print a draft version of your poster or if you do not need to review a draft version before printing the final.
