The button maker can be booked for 24 hours from 11am to 11am the following day. Multiple days can be booked if available.

To reserve the button maker, contact csamain@uoguelph.ca.

A $75 cash deposit is required for all groups who wish to use this service. The button-maker will be examined upon its return. If it is found to be in working condition, your deposit will be returned to you; if it is not in working condition, your deposit will go towards the cost of repairs. The deposit will also be lost if not returned after 24 hours.

Alternatively, your CSA can print your posters for you at an additional cost. See the Print Services page for xerox printing pricing.

If you choose not to use our runner services, you can still utilize the CSA’s collection of boards across campus, provided you bring your posters to UC 233 for approval and stamping prior to posting. We will then provide you a copy of a route guide to the boards.

The CSA reserves the right to refuse to post and to remove what we deem as offensive material.

During CSA Elections, boards may be reserved solely for Elections Candidate posters. The Fall By-Elections run September 28-October 7, 2016. The Winter Elections run February 27-March 3, 2017.
