    Game Signs Basketball

    Hey I have a couple ideas for signs for the games but i was wondering where most people printed them... I checked out copyworks and there it was like $80 or something so theres gotta be a cheaper option that I just dont know about.

    The poster in my avatar cost me about 28 from copy works. It's about 20 by 28ish.

    When I was at ISU, at least in engineering you had excessive amounts of printer credits, applied to your bill whether you used them or not...so you could use the big plotters in the engineering computer labs for "free" since you've already paid the fees.

    Then go to Hobby Lobby and get some thick board backing for a few bucks, then glue or spray adhesive...done! 10 bucks most!

    Any thoughts?

    Anyone compared Alpha Copies to Copyworks? (Right by Campus Bookstore)

    This is what i did. Used the plotter for 30 print credits, went to hobby lobby and bought foam board for 5.99 and spray adhesive for like 4.99 and boom, done.

    Could you post the full sized pic? If it says what I think it says, that's nice!

    I think you have to be in engineering to use those, but there is some kind of print shop in the design building that i believe is open to anyone. I have never been there so i am not exactly sure.

    Print/computer labs at design college on 4th floor. Was a $1 per inch on 36 in wide printer with a couple different paper options in 2009.

    Re: Game Signs Basketball

    Many departments, especially science-related disciplines, have plotters of some sort, as presenting posters at conferences is quite common for researchers. Just get in with the person in charge!

    I've made some personal posters and prints by buying the guy who runs our plotter a six pack.
