Using Posters to Publicize Events

Timing Is Everything

Plan your poster/table tents at least four weeks prior to your event. The College’s posting policy does not allow for hanging posters more than two weeks in advance.

Week 1 & 2: Gather images and text. Send to Robin Parks, who will design the materials and generate a proof. Once you have finalized your materials, Robin will place the order with Office Depot, or assist you in placing the order. Typically, Office Depot delivers in two days.

Week 3: Distribute posters around campus. Dining Services will distribute table tents on campus.

Keep Your Budget in Mind

A full-color 11 x 17 poster on glossy stock currently costs $.56 from Office Depot. Typically 80 posters will suffice for this campus (total $44.80). Table tents are currently $10 for 100 (the quantity needed for this campus). Once the materials are delivered, Office Depot will send Robin an invoice, which she will forward along to you.

If you would like to see samples of posters from other events on campus, please stop by Robin’s office, Gateway 307.

Picking Up and Distributing Your Finished Posters

Robin can provide you with a Word doc set up for mailing labels that includes a list of 80 departments, libraries, dining halls, and dormitory floors at Bryn Mawr, as well as the main libraries and the bookstores of Haverford and Swarthmore. To distribute your posters on campus, print out labels, stick onto the back of the posters and put them into campus mail without envelope. It is your responsibility to distribute posters off campus, if that is part of your plan.
