Determine what your message is, the best way to communicate it, and what action you desire your viewers to take when others receive the message.  


Large posters placed in outdoor metal frames around campus or in enclosed poster cases located inside the MC.


  • Oversized posters are placed in the most highly populated areas around campus.
  • They are highly visible and can be seen from a distance.
  • They are easily scheduled and do not need a display stamp.
  • This format is great for ads that need to be used repeatedly.


  • Outdoor oversized posters are exposed to wind, snow, and water. As a result, they could potentially sustain damage.
  • They cost more than the standard 11x17 posters, but have a better response rate and require fewer posters.
  • Reservations are limited to two weeks at a time, with a week break in between.
  • Space is limited and is often in high demand.

Estimated Cost (verify prices with vendor before ordering):

  • $18.67 per poster
