Six-sided, spindle-style acrylic table tents are located in the residential dining halls—the Lodge and Roaring Fork—as well as in Cafe 65. All told, about 180 tables.
The cost is $20 per slot (in all 180 table tents), per month (one-month minimum), plus the cost of print production--roughly $12--for non-auxiliary departments/organizations; $10 per slot, per month, plus the cost of print production for UCCS-recognized student organizations; free for Auxiliaries. No outside advertising will be permitted. Ad space is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Payment methods: We prefer you use a campus speedtype to pay for any costs associated with our advertising. However, in the case of student organizations, we have arranged for cash and check to be accepted at the UC Info Desk. You may also use a credit/debit card at the Info Desk, but an additional 3% will be added to cover transaction fees.
Frequency and Timing
Currently our table tent ads are on a 1-month rotation, beginning on (or near) the first Monday of each month. Please note, because DHS has kindly taken on the responsibility of changing out ads and are opting to wash all the table tent holders each month (apparently they get quite schmutzy!), we don't have full control of exactly when the ads will appear on tables. In general, we ask that we receive the art files on the last Wednesday of the month, so that we have time to print and deliver them to DHS before the start of the month. Please email Kayla Maldonado or Jina Fagerburg if you have any questions.
Your ad must include an affiliation—we recommend your official UCCS logo (if you have one) or a club logo, etc. We also highly recommend an email address or other format of contact for those viewing your sign. These may be small and unobtrusive, but nonetheless present.
Your ad must be for an event or service open to a large proportion of the UCCS population—we are here to serve the general population. If you have questions about a proposed ad, please reach out to us. Aux Services Marketing withholds the right to make final judgment calls on proposed advertising in all cases.
DPI: We recommend printing at 300 dpi to ensure clear readability in the small, table tent format
File formats: .ai, .eps, .tif, .psd, .pdf; Save in CMYK mode only
Images: NO copyrighted materials
Printing: We strongly recommend you send the design to us. We have made arrangements with the Copy Center to have the proper paper in a size to maximize our efforts, and pay a flat fee for cutting. While you can print and cut independently, it will be more expensive. Please note, your organization will be responsible for production costs either way. The ads should be printed on recyclable, lightweight paper--no cardstock, and nothing neon. If you choose to print/cut on your own, 180 copies of the final ads must be delivered to Aux Services Marketing by the Monday before posting in the tables. If you are delivering files, you may deliver your final files by the last Wednesday of each month.
