Event Bulletin Board "E"
A small poster (max 14 X 22 inches) may be displayed on Bulletin Board "E" (a locked display case) prior to an event. The MU will date your poster when you submit it and as soon as possible (considering the number of posters on hand and event dates) will post it for you. Your poster will be removed after your event takes place.
How to Hang a Banner on The MU
Why: To advertise your event in a BIG way!
Where: Outside the south entry to the MU commons. This is the only place where you may hang a banner on the Memorial Union.
Reservations: Can be made at the MU Business office up to one year in advance. Banner may be hung on building for up to 5 days. The MU staff will hang the banner for you, but they are not responsible for theft or damage. Please pick up banner from MU Business after event within 24 hours.
Is it free to hang the banner? Yes, but you must supply the banner. These can be purchased at a sign company.
Where to get banners made: You can have banners made by sign companies.
How much do banners cost: They vary in price, but a large banner (11' x 5') can cost $150.00 and up. This is reasonable if you plan to reuse the banner to promote an annual event or your organization. Dated lettering or numbering can be removed and new lettering applied.
Design factors: According to professional sign makers anything that can be done on computer can be done on a banner. They can work with your design or they can help you come up with one. Sign makers typically have at least 2,000 font styles to choose from.
