Banner Printing

Banner Printing

The Office of Student Life provides printing and copying services for student organizations at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The following policy outlines the rules and processes all student organizations must abide by regarding flyers and banners.

The posting of any information or advertisement and distribution of posted materials is governed not only by the below policy, but by all other applicable University policies and procedures. Posted material includes, but is not limited to: flyers, signs, table tents, and/or posters.

For flyer copying and printing requests, color copies cost 25 cents per page and black/white copies cost 5 cents per page. To request printing or copying of flyers, student organizations must complete the Copy/Printing Request form on VictorsLink.

Banners cost $30 to print and student organizations can request banner printing by completing the Banner Request Form on VictorsLink.

Both banners and flyers take 3-5 business days to print. Once printed, student organizations will be notified via VictorsLink to pick up their banners and/or flyers at the Campus Involvement Hub. They must be picked up by a current UM-Dearborn student and the student collecting will need to show their UM ID card.

In order to post flyers around campus, the flyer must be stamped by the Office of Student Life. Only current UM-Dearborn students that are members of the student organization are allowed to get flyers stamped and they must present their UM ID card before receiving stamping. To receive stamping and posting approval, the flyer must include the name of the organization, contact information including a UMich email address, and it optimally should have the name of what the flyer is for (i.e. name of the event). The Office of Student Life reserves the right to ask for changes to be made to the flyer if it is not clear who the sponsoring organization is or if any other posting criteria is not met.

Approved posted material may only be posted on designated bulletin boards for public posting, not on boards owned by particular offices, building walls/doors, or University signage. Standard staples, thumb-tacks and pushpins are the only approved methods of affixing posted materials to bulletin boards and/or tack strips.

While banners do not need to be stamped by the Office of Student Life, they must abide by the same rules as flyers. Specifically, they must include the name of the organization, contact information including a UMich email address, and an outline of what the banner is advertising, if applicable. If not in accordance with this, then banners will not be approved. 

Flyers will remain posted for 30 days after being stamped or until the advertised event has passed. Banners will be posted by the Office of Student Life in the University Center or Fairlane Center South for up to two weeks or until the advertised event has passed. Banners will only be posted in the University Center or Fairlane Center South if they are printed by the Office of Student Life.

Failure to adhere to the Posting Policy may result in disciplinary action under applicable University of Michigan-Dearborn policies and procedures and/or applicable civil statutes. Postings that violate this policy will be removed and the offending individual or group will receive a warning. If three warnings are given, individual or organization posting privileges may be revoked.

For additional information on this policy, please contact the Office of Student Life.

 

HELPFUL TIPS

  • To minimize the likelihood of a stretched image, format your file to be the size you plan to print before designing it.
  • Your banner is much more likely to be hung longer if it is Portrait rather than Landscape. We simply have more space for banners with a portrait orientation.
  • Request must include a UM-Dearborn email account or they will be bounced back to the sender.
  • Please allow five business days for processing.  Should our staff have any questions regarding your request, we will call or email you directly.

The Office of Student Life reserves the right to decline any banner request.
