The Odds and Ends of Programming and Event Management
Long title, but for good reason—planning an event is hard. Here is a list of some things you may have not thought of OR wasn’t listed in the sections above.
Copy cards can be secured through the library to be used for small jobs. For larger jobs, fill out a University Printing Services print request form (available at www.plu.edu/~ucom/printing-publications/forms) and charge the copying fee to your club’s account. Quick copy jobs usually take one day, and offset printing requires 1-2 weeks.
Helium filled balloons for your event can be purchased through the PLU bookstore. You can purchase the balloons ahead of time and have them delivered for a small fee.
|Type of Balloon||Price|
|Foil Mylar Balloon||$3.00|
|Single Latex Balloon||$0.75|
|Small Bouquet — 3 Latex/1 Mylar||$5.25|
|Large Bouquet — 5 Latex/1 Mylar||$6.75|
