Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

General

What kind of services does Impact offer?

Impact offers a wide variety of services, including:

  • poster design
  • logo design
  • printing
  • Weekly Flyer ads
  • digital display ads (shown every day on our Impact TVs on both levels of the UC)
  • table top ads
  • photography services
  • videography services

Why is the Daily Flyer now the Weekly Flyer? What's changed?

As a student run business, Impact is always looking for ways to expand and grow, while also being aware of sustainability. The Daily Flyer, while a novelty around campus, uses about 36,450 pages of paper per school year. With the Weekly Flyer, we plan to be printing about half that amount, maybe even less.

Weekly Flyers will now be distributed around campus every Monday morning and will feature everything a Daily Flyer had.  Weekly Flyers will also stick around campus for 7 days rather than Daily Flyer’s 5, so more advertisement time for you!

Here are the new prices (for just one week) below:

Full page ad (Vertical or Horizontal)= $60

Half page ad (Horizontal)= $40

Quarter page ad (Vertical) = $25

Design Fee (optional)= $3

Posters & Distribution

I selected a certain day for distribution. Why isn't my poster up yet?

Currently, Impact’s poster distributor works twice a week to distribute posters. For Spring 2017, posters are distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 10am, and the Weekly Flyer every Monday at 9am. If you chose a date that was not on Monday or Wednesday, we distribute the posters on whichever day, Monday or Wednesday, that is closest to your specified date.

In order to know what exact day your poster will be distributed on, we recommend that you choose a Monday or Wednesday this semester while filling out an Impact Request that requires bulletin board distribution.

Can Impact print a poster I've already designed?

Yes! Impact will print out a poster design and distribute it on all Impact boards. Your poster will get priority distribution and spacing on our boards. You can fill out a Quick Copy Request and attach your design to the form. We ask that you submit this request at least three business days before your desired distribution date, as we cannot guarantee that late requests will be printed in time for distribution. Late requests will result in a rush fee of $3.50 for 8.5×11 posters and $10 for 11×17 posters.

Will Impact distribute posters I've already printed?

Yes, however we require that posters are brought to AUC 140 (SAB/Clubs and Orgs) to be approved and stamped by the SIL front desk workers one week before the date presented on the poster. Please take into consideration that the front desk is not staffed continuously from 8-5pm each day, so always have your posters ready and finished way ahead of your desired distribution date. If no one is staffing the desk, feel free to leave your posters on the SIL front desk. The SIL student workers will then bring posters over to Impact. Please do not leave unstamped posters in our mailbox. 

In addition, please recognize that Impact produced work (Quick Copy Requests and Creative Requests) are given guaranteed priority spacing and distribution. Put simply, if the SIL student desk worker says there is no more room on the Impact boards, they will not take your poster to Impact.

Please do not drop off your poster if the event date is more than two weeks from the drop off date.

What are the current distribution days/times this semester?

For Spring 2017, our Distributor works on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10am. Weekly Flyers are distributed every Monday at 9am. Any Weekly Flyer requests should be sent in by the previous Friday.

Oh no! The Impact Boards are full! What other ways can I advertise?

We offer a variety of other Impact services. Our digital display ads are run daily on the Impact TVs, which are located in the upper and lower UC. We accept both static images and videos. Click here to request a digital display ad.

You can also place your advertisement in the Weekly Flyer for a low cost. These are distributed widely across campus.

Alternatively, you may post pre-printed posters on the bulletin boards under the Impact TVs in the UC, or on the bulletin boards on the UC staircase. These must be stamped and approved by AUC 140’s SIL student workers first.
