Before You Start...
Before filling out the request form, make sure you have all of the necessary information for the graphic/event accessible.
- What time and date will it take place?
- Do people need to register?
- When do you want this graphic to be shown, and for how many weeks?
- What all do you need made? (slide, brochure, signage, etc.)
The timeframes listed are from the date when promotion of your graphic/event should begin - not from the day of the event itself. For example, if you want to promote your graphic for 3 weeks on Sunday mornings, you ideally need to submit the graphics request at least 6 weeks out from the day of the event. This allows for 2 weeks for the graphic to be made, and 3 weeks for it to run on Sunday mornings before the day of the event.
