Sidewalk Signs

Sidewalk Sign Graphic

BYU–Hawaii University Communications is implementing a new form of advertising on campus by using sidewalk signs in high traffic areas to publicize events. Departments wishing to use this form of advertising should send their designs to University Communications for approval before printing. University Communications will arrange the display of the poster and frame.

How to Arrange and Approve a Sidewalk Poster

The process for arranging and approving a sidewalk poster should begin about three weeks before you would like it displayed. We recommend that sidewalk posters be placed out about a week prior to the event date. All sidewalk posters displayed by University Communications are the same size, which allows departments to start the scheduling and design process at the same time.
