Need a flyer or postcard in 1 or 2 days?
We created templates to make it easy for you to create your own flyer. It's simple. Choose a design and type in your text.
- Create a flyer online
- Create postcards for your program. It takes just a few minutes to create a print piece with the latest up-to-date information about your program to hand out to current or potential students. Think about information you can add about open houses, reminders, events or new classes.
- Or, do it yourself. Get templates and an example here.
Things to think about when arranging photos
- He/she's got the look. Choose students you
want to represent your program and reflect the diversity of our college. The
students should be someone other students can relate to and see as a role
model. The students should have charisma and great smiles - and be enthusiastic
about your program. Being comfortable in front of camera helps too!
- Permission. Keep in mind that we need permission
from students we photograph for promotion. Ask students and classrooms ahead
of time if it is OK to photograph them and give them some warning. We will
have them fill out release forms when we arrive.
- Semi-staging. Candid photos of a classroom
or workshop and permissions from everyone in attendance can be tough to get.
Good pictures usually require people to stand closer together than they actually
do. For group shots, it works best to choose 3-5 students who are good representatives
and are willing to be photographed and have them sit near each other. We can
then take candid pictures of that group during the class or workshop or we
can stage some shots with that group.
- Enthusiastic, smart, genuine. If we also
need a quote from a student about your program, in addition to being photogenic
and a good representative of the program the student should be serious and
enthusiastic about the program. In other words, if a friend stopped this person
on the street and asked them about the college, the person would have good
things to say about the program.
We'll take the photos, but need your help to find the subjects, classrooms and students. There's more to this than it may seem. The photos will be a big part of the message of your brochure. It's important they convey the same intention as the text. We need your help to get great pictures. Please keep these things in mind when selecting subjects and arranging photos:
