Digital Signs, A-Frames and Table Tents

Advertising and marketing is important as student organizations plan an event. Registered student organizations may post signs, posters, or banners in accordance with Appendix A in the Student Handbook. Any sign posted in violation of this policy may be removed without notice or warning by the University. Signs, posters, and banners must include event date or posting date so they can be removed within 24 hours following the event.

Digital Signs

There are 6 digital screen locations on the Hamilton campus and 12 on the Middletown campus where your student organization or university department can advertise for upcoming events or services. 

Design Tips

  • Size of full-screen ad is 2834 pixels wide by 1600 pixels tall
  • Ads should be in .jpg format
  • Keep it simple. Double check for errors in spelling, grammar and quality of images
  • Design advertisements between 96 dpi and 300 dpi
  • Avoid using more than three fonts styles or font size smaller than 16 pt
  • Design to be eye-pleasing, eye-catching, and READABLE
  • Look before you submit! If your advertisement would not make you attend your event or sign up for your group, you may want to alter your advertisement
  • Advertisements not meeting basic design standards may be sent back to the individual/group submitting the advertisement for edits before resubmission
