PBSci 'A-Frame' Poster Stands
A-Frame double-sided poster holders are built and maintained by PBSci Woodshop. BSOE and other units can reserve and use but need to pay for PBSci Woodshop recharge for delivery setup/removal. There are 15 of these stands (last confirmed 6/6/14). Reservations are via the PBSci Dean's Office, PBSci has 1st priority on their use. Anyone borrowing them is responsible for final setup and adjustments (they are very heavy).
UCSC Receiving Services
See form at: http://receiving.ucsc.edu/forms/rentalform.html
Formally owned by James Bonney, these light weight wooden stands that stand vertically. Available for rent from UCSC Receiving Services. There likely is a cost to deliver and setup. If windy, recommend putting sand bags on the feet as they can easily blow over. Receiving says as of 9/1/10 they have about 50 but this number can be less depending upon breakage. There is a photo on the form.
BSOE PVC Poster Holders (10 each as of 10/23/09)
BSOE facilities has made 10 each vertical poster holders from PVC pipe and pegboard. These holders are only good for strapping to the E2 railings and via using tall steel stakes, they can be set up on the edges of the E2/JBEB courtyard, where there is dirt using the stakes.

Poster Printing Recharge Cost Analysis
BELS recommends a poster size of 48x36 or 36x48 inches. Smaller size is ok. Our standard roll of paper is 36in wide and policy is to not recharge for posters that adhere to guidelines. Recharge is done for non-standard posters to account for additional time and expense required.
Poster Rush Orders:
BELS student staff print posters when they do not have other lab support work. The general policy at the start of this service was posters should be submitted with plenty of time for BELS student staff to do review, fix and print the poster without direction away from other duties. Unfortanetely many poster printing customers do not adhere to this policy and often send in posters late. This required BELS staff to often drop all other important work or work overtime to complete posters submitted late. In 2008-09, the number of posters submitted late grew from about 30% to nearly 70%. During this time, BELS budgeting was reduced in response to budget reductions. BELS was forced to either no longer take late posters or to charge for the extra cost that late submissions are responsible for.
In May 2009, Dean's office agreed and Chancellor approved rush fee pricing of BELS poster printing service. All customers (Dean's office included) now pay rush fees for posters submitted with less than 4 full business days lead time. Payment can be made from student AIS account or via recharge to a FOPAL. Posters submitted with more than 4 business days notice from BSOE personnel are still printed without charge.
The poster printing service was never funded by BSOE; the poster plotter was donated by HP. Plotter paper and ink currently are funded by BELS operation funds but are tracked separately. If posters
