POSTERS

 

Placement of posters shall be limited to designated areas only. Thumbtacks, not staples or tape, must be used to affix posters to campus bulletin boards. Signs may not be placed on interior or exterior walls or painted surfaces. Posters or flyers may not be taped to sidewalks, light posts or telephone poles, and may not be placed on any vehicle on a public street or parking lot, per Eau Claire city ordinance. Posters will be removed due to the discretion of University staff if they do not abide by the Promotional Materials Policies.

Commercial enterprises or private agencies using UW-Eau Claire facilities on a rental basis are limited to one poster placed in Davies Center in addition to posters placed within their rented areas (selected locations only as dictated by rental agreement).

Campus publicity will promote the responsible use of alcohol when alcohol is part of the event and is referenced in the event promotion.

All posters displayed on campus must meet all eligibility requirements.

Due to the increase in available poster boards in Davies Center and the increase in poster demand, posters are limited to one posting, per event, per pillar or board.  Poster size may not exceed 11 × 17 inches, to be conscious of space for other postings within Davies Center.

BANNERS

 

DAVIES CENTER BANNERS

     

Davies Center banners must be scheduled with Event Services, Davies Center 240. Organizations may display banners for up to three consecutive days, and are responsible for hanging and removal of banners. Banners must be removed on the day following the event.

Davies Center Exterior Banner Locations

  • Above southeast entrance, displayed from the Level 2 Terrace
    Three banner spots are available
  • Above northeast entrance, displayed from the Level 2 Terrace
    Five banner spots are available
  • Above northwest entrance (facing McIntyre Library and Schofield Hall),
    displayed from the Level 2 Terrace
    Three banner spots are available

Banner size should not exceed 91 × 32 inches, and banners must be hung horizontally.
All Davies Center banners must be vinyl and secured with rope, not tape or wire, to avoid damage to exterior walls and railings. Rope will need to be about three feet in length to permit banners to clear the exterior ledges. Organization name(s) must be clearly listed on the banner.

Printing Services provides vinyl banner production services.

We suggest that specific event dates not be posted on the banner, to allow you to reuse your banner multiple times. If a specific date is desired, we suggest that your banner design include a blank box where you can Velcro a laminated sign to the banner with the specific event date each time you use it.

Requests for banners at other Davies Center exterior locations should be presented to the Director of University Centers. No interior banners are to be displayed within Davies Center.

FOOTBRIDGE BANNERS

     

Footbridge banners are only for Homecoming and Student Senate's use, two weeks prior to the event.

TABLE TENTS

 

The designated location for promotional table tents is in Hilltop Center, within the Bowling and Billiard Center and Riverview Café only. Up to 150 table tents may be used in this space.

Table tent display periods must be reserved through the Event Services office, Davies Center 240. A maximum of three organizations may display table tents at any one time, so space is subject to availability. Display periods may be up to three consecutive days in length. Table tent designs do not need to be approved, but must clearly identify the sponsoring organization and the dates reserved through Event Services. It is recommended that table tents be half a letter-size sheet, printed on cardstock and folded in half. Organizations are responsible for distribution and removal of their own table tents.

Table tents in violation of the above restrictions will be removed and discarded.

SHOWCASES

 

All showcases in Davies Center must be reserved through the Event Services office, Davies Center 240. Reservations are based on a first-come, first-served basis and are reserved in one-week intervals that run from Sunday to Saturday. Only Event Services professional or student staff members are allowed to unlock the cases for groups' use.

All items must be removed from the showcases by 11 p.m. on Saturday and all cases should be cleaned up in preparation for other groups' use. Failure to remove items by the deadline will result in the appropriate disposal of the showcase's contents and a warning will be distributed to the showcase's sponsor. If a second infraction of failing to remove materials by the deadline occurs, the sponsor will not be allowed to reserve a showcase for the remainder of the semester.  

Shelving within the showcases is not adjustable or removable. Please be cautious of the shelving since it is glass and may not be able to support all items desired for display. Any damage to the showcases or shelving will be the responsibility of the reservation sponsor.

In addition, staples or nails are not to be used within the cases, and tape of any kind is not allowed to be used on the glass doors or shelving. Thumbtacks or push pins are allowed to hang displays within the cases.
