* For the Main Exhibit signage, I'm suggesting we duplicate our efforts and have 2 main titles and explanations so that people coming in from either side of the gallery will be coming through the "entrance" into the exhibit.  Please let us know if there's anything else that we're missing, feel free to amend this list as needed.


Maya & Lisa have generously donated the newsletter paper (11x17, thicker stock, semi-gloss), as well as a few hundred 8x10 sticky labels, card stock and a color printing account.  We still need matte board, foam core, & spray adhesive. If you have any of these items, let me (Jill) know and bring 'em with you to the GD party on Tuesday, June 2nd.




Resources & Questions:


  • Where did Museology get the posters printed for Open House? How many? Cost?
  • Do we want a Website, wiki, blog?
    • What might we need to incorporate into this?
  • What kind of design materials do we want to create?
  • Work with fabrication to design printed text/wall text if we choose to have it?

Regarding Printed Posters:
*The UW copy shops (now called creative communications) cost $14 for a 2'x3' paper poster printed in color - according to our student assistants. There is one in the Communications Building and the UW Tower - both are close. They are going to be busy with the undergraduate research symposium coming up (May 15), but are good quality and inexpensive.
*UW Posters (http://uwposters.com/) can print on fabric and looks cool, though I've never used them. They look expensive, though say they can do same day turnaround in most cases. (julie)

I would love to get a logo/title and general graphics guidelines such as font from you this week to use in the web and press releases that are going out this week. Also, for the online postings it would be great to have one or two low resolution key images that we use to promote the exhibit. Will you be selecting these? And can I get those this week? Thanks! Nicole

Hey GD! Could we get some banners for above the glass cases that say "give it" and "get it"?

Sure Erin, what kind of banners are you thinking? How big, what kind of material? Thanks
