Posters

Personalized genealogy posters are a great way to display your academic heritage. They also make great graduation and retirement gifts. Our posters are printed on a high-quality glossy paper suitable for framing or hanging on the wall as is. Personal posters usually measure three feet by three feet, but the size depends on the individual's genealogy. Departmental posters are three feet tall (possibly 42 inches if the extra space is required) and as wide as needed to accommodate the ancestry of the department. All posters allow a choice of background color (or background and text/line colors if using a dark background), and departmental posters may choose to accent their faculty members' nodes with a colored border.

Processing time for a personal poster is generally three weeks, measured from the date we receive your order form to the date you receive the poster. If you need a poster faster than that, we offer expedited processing for an additional $25 above the prices below. Expedited processing is handled via email to posters@genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu and must be used for delivery dates between one week and three weeks. Processing times of less than one week are not available. Regular poster prices are listed below. All posters shipped within the US also incur a $15 shipping and handling fee, which includes insured shipment via USPS Priority Mail in a durable poster tube. (The $25 expedited processing fee for orders needed in less than three weeks includes upgraded shipping via USPS Express Mail for overnight delivery.) Shipping and handling for international orders will vary. Posters shipped internationally may be subject to taxes/duties in the country of destination. Purchasers are responsible for paying such charges, and we are unable to advise in advance what they may be.

  • Personal genealogy poster including all ancestors—$45.00 + $15.00 shipping and handling
  • Personal genealogy poster including all ancestors and students—$55.00 and up + $15.00 shipping and handling
  • Departmental genealogy posters—$150.00 and up + $15.00 shipping and handling
    • The first six feet are $150. If a department's genealogy requires more than six feet of width, the price will be determined based on the total length and the amount of work required to lay out the poster. A good estimate is that an additional stretch of up to six feet (making the poster up to 12 feet in width) is an additional $75.00.
    • Departments may choose to include their PhD graduates on their poster at no additional charge. However, we will ask that someone from the department determine which individuals in our database listed under that institution graduated with a degree from a particular department. (For example, our database includes North Dakota State University PhD graduates from the Department of Mathematics, the Department of Statistics, and the Department of Computer Science and Operations Reserach. A query for "North Dakota State University" returns all of them and we are unable to distinguish which department they graduated from without reviewing thesis titles, which is not something we are able to do for each poster order.)
    • Because of the complex nature of department posters, please allow at least one month from the date we receive your order to the date you receive the poster. On a case-by-case basis, we will consider faster delivery times, but there will be an expedited processing surcharge of at least $25.
    • Please contact Mitch Keller regarding department poster orders. (There is no order form required for department posters.)

You may order a personal poster by sending the form to the address listed on the form. Please read the entire form before sending payment, as certain posters require price confirmation in advance of payment. Contact our posters team for further information on personal poster orders. Poster purchases support the project's student employees and other associated costs.
