PC Request Timeline:
To ensure adequate marketing exposure, the PC requires requests to be made at least four weeks in advance of the final deadline.
Please note: The earlier you can submit Publicity Center requests, the better. Merchandise, and larger campaigns with multiple rounds of edits require more time.
Week 1: Initial Sketch and meeting
Week 2: 1st draft and client edits (second meeting scheduled between designer and client)
Week 3 and 4: Final edits, final proof, printing, and distribution
Please note: printing and distribution is not instant. Additional edits in weeks three and four will limit the amount of marketing exposure.
Creating your own design?
Make sure to follow the AS WWU Branding Guide to ensure your print and digital designs meet our accessibility and branding requirements. For digital media, please view our digital media guidelines. Please see the official AS WWU Logos below.

*Table tents and banners require reservations. For table tents, visit University Residences, in person, in EH109. For banners and kiosks, visit VU Reservations in VU536, or request a reservation online.
Both interior and exterior banners require advance reservations! See link above for VU Reservations.
Exterior banners measure 8'x3' and are hung in specific locations on building walls around campus. All locations are landscape oriented with the exception of "Bond Hall vertical" which is portrait oriented (3' x 8'). Exterior banners must be event related and are allowed to stay up for no more than two weeks. Multiple banners for a single event are generally not allowed due to space constraints. Exterior banners are hung by Publicity Center staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Viking Union mezzanine banners are portrait oriented banners hung from the 7th floor mezzanine railing. These are for general AS office promotion only and may not be used for event advertising. They are hung by Publicity Center staff, and may stay up for no more than one academic quarter.
For exceptions to these rules, contact the VU Reservationist and/or the Publicity Center Manager.
The AS Publicity Center reviews and approves for compliance with the Standards and Policy, and distributes postings across campus for University groups, departments, and nonprofit organizations.

The PC values sustainability in our purchasing decisions, office practices, and advice. We use an e-trike for a lot of our deliveries, and encourage you to get to campus sustainably. Ride a bike, walk, or take the bus! You can find the WTA bus schedule here.
