Poster Printing Service – Instructions for using our service

SETTING UP A NEW USER ACCOUNT

  • If you already have an iLab account, you do not need to sign up for a new one. Please check with your PI, Lab Manager, or Department Manager to make sure you have access to the necessary billing/cost center numbers.
  • If you do not have an iLab account, please follow VUMC Core’s instructions to register for one. After registering, your account will need to be approved. This will take 24-48 hours. Upon account request approval, please follow the instructions below.

ACCESSING BRET POSTER PRINTING CORE

***DO NOT submit a PO request. Your Department Manager must assign center numbers to your (VU) Lab and give you access to the center number.***

In iLab, you must use a (VU) Lab to place an order with BRET Poster Printing Services. If you do not have a (VU) Lab, please email coresvu@vanderbilt.edu with the following information to create one:

  • Name
  • VUnet ID
  • Email Address
  • Lab/Department Name
  • PI Name
  • PI Email Address

(Lab/Department Name(s) and Department Number(s): this should include any department that the PI has center numbers under.)

Note: If the PI does not have an existing lab group, the user should select the AAA Default (VUMC) Lab.

PLACING YOUR POSTER ORDER
