It is the performer’s responsibility to deliver a copy-ready design of your poster to UW Oshkosh Copy This!! or a duplicating facility of your choice. The Music Department does not pay to have student Junior/Senior/SFM/non-degree recital posters printed. Please be sure to include the date/time/location, and “Free Admission” text.

For all other concerts: Up to 20 posters will be paid from Music Department funds. Faculty are to use UMC services for design if needed; send the file to for duplicating.

Please note: University regulations state that posters cannot be taped on bare walls. Bulletin boards within the Music Department are not for student use. However, students may hang posters on the push pin rail in stairwells or other general access bulletin boards.
