Information about Displaying Flyers and Videos

Duration

Flyers and videos are placed in a rotation. Each is displayed for 15 seconds.

Flyers and Videos that advertise for a coming event will be displayed until the event date. If you wish your flyer to be displayed for a specific period of time, please include a note with your submission.

Flyers that are intended as an ongoing advertisement will be featured for a maximum of one academic semester. If you wish to have ongoing advertisements displayed over consecutive semesters, we ask that you submit a re-designed flyer (via the DIBs Request Form) so that the sign content stays fresh.

Videos

Videos can be submitted in Flash, Quicktime (.mov), or Windows Media (.avi) format. Videos can incorporate sound. Videos longer than 15 seconds will not be displayed.

Frequency

The number of times your flyer will be displayed at any given period of time will vary depending on the number of flyers currently in the rotation. For example: if there are 60 flyers being rotated at 15 seconds per flyer, each flyer will be shown once every 15 minutes.

Flyer Design Tips

You may send a .jpg copy of a flyer intended for print, but consider redesigning your flyer by including only essential details, making the fonts larger, and utilizing more space by using a landscape layout. If you are near one of the DIBs in Lamberton or the UC, look at the flyers in rotation to get an idea of what might work for your advertisement.

Please Note:

All advertising will be reviewed and posted at the discretion of the Office of Student Center Facilities. Advertising policies and fees are subject to change without notice.

DIBs guidelines are subject to change.
