Flyers and 11" x 17" posters created with these templates can be printed through the duplicating center (please indicate size when printing poster templates). 24" x 36" posters will need to be professionally printed and can be made by contacting Jamie Koning from Strategic Media at jamie@strategicmediallc.net. For assistance, contact the Office of Alumni Relations and Marketing at hcob-communications@wmich.edu.

Digital signs

Photography

The Office of Alumni Relations and Marketing has a collection of high-quality photos taken by the University photographer for design needs. Please contact Cindy Wagner at (269) 387-5928 to request photos. Please also contact the office to schedule a photo shoot for upcoming press or promotional materials, or to borrow a camera to take photos at an event.

Video Production

The communications team can advise on video projects in terms of best practices, storyboarding and editing. Please contact us to meet about your video project, borrow a video camera or discuss video production services on campus.

Note: If you are using music in a video, you may want to consider using royalty-free music or purchasing stock music for your production. Use of many songs requires purchasing the rights to the music in order to share the work publically as a part of your video and may be cost prohibitive. Contact the communications team if you have questions about music use in video productions.
