Wiki Flyer


Flyering is one of the many forms of Free Community Advertising that Davis Wiki and other groups use. While not entirely free, flyers are pretty cheap to make and free to post. To help advertise the DavisWiki, start with a [WWW]full-page PDF of the logo or [WWW]the same thing in Flash. Then just make your own flyers, but post them here first to get some feedback. Another way to help might be to create a Wiki Desktop Wallpaper and put it on as many multi-user computers as you can. If you don't have any cash, learn the art of Opportunistic Wiki Advertising.

Early Flyers

The First Flyer

PhilipNeustrom made the first Wiki Flyer (08/4/04), and it looks like this:


I plan to pass it out to friends and people that look like they might be interested. I might leave some at Cafe Roma. - PhilipNeustrom

And now, check out this awesome ASCII flyer:

Secondary Efforts

The plan (a while ago):

2004 Flyers

Idea for the early fall flyers:

2/3 of the early fall flyers

(MikeIvanov needs to upload the other one)

2005 Flyers


Please crop the flyers neatly before posting or distributing. The 'OMG', 'WTF' flyers are based on Judson Wickham's original idea.

omg.pngFor printing, [WWW]download as PDF. omgsmall.pngFor printing, [WWW]download as PDF. wtf.png does not seem to be an image file. oneSentenceFlyer.gifSimple paper-saver, three-in-one flyers with wiki in a sentence phrases. Get a [WWW]PDF. Just print and cut apart.


There's also a [WWW]quarter sheet version of the "Un" flyer — print the file "four to a page".

Following the advice of Eric Redpath, I opened "You are the Editor" in Photoshop and inverted it, making it look about 10 times better. Can someone do this with the vector graphics? - arlen

DavisWiki Card

Hmmm... look what I just found in my wallet. Many of these were made (and there's still quite a few). It's hard finding a good place to put them, though.


"I have one in my business card drawer here. That's a bit over 2,600 miles away. Anybody carry theirs to a farther destination?" —JabberWokky


davislick.jpg community.gifVersion one - I need to get a print suitable logo. Comments? Ideas? [WWW]Click here for the PDF

Lambert designs

Here's a design for a handout that SteveLambert designed a while back. It was never printed but it'd be a good idea for us to print it up. Potentially via [WWW]

2005-04-14 08:31:59   Great new flyers! —JackHaskel

2005-04-14 13:14:12   Glad you like them. Let me know how the "2,700 photos" one looks printed in black and white. —MikeIvanov

2005-04-28 10:35:26   I'll be handing out quarter sheets today around campus. If anyone sees me and wants to help or wants some fliers just ask. —JackHaskel

2005-06-10 15:04:50   Quickly, print flyers before the quarter ends! —ArlenAbraham

2005-06-15 11:05:37   Go, Go, Go! Print, Print, Print. It's freee! —MichaelGiardina

2005-06-15 12:36:54   I've always used my last print sheets for wiki flyers but this quarter I have no extras. If anyone wants to give me fliers I'll be happy to put them up. I'd recommend making the quarter sheets. They're a lot of fun to give out! —JackHaskel

2005-07-27 15:18:02   here's a phrase ", because you can't procasturbate at work" —ArlenAbraham

2005-08-17 22:13:57   I think that flyer would come out solid black on a laser printer. also, am i missing a pun here? —ArlenAbraham

2005-08-17 23:55:59   Hahah I think that flyer is very bad PR for us. Just creepy. Were it a really hot girl, it might be more effective, but I think it captures little of what Davis Wiki is about and would confuse a person who doesn't already know about the site. All the other flyers try to tell you something about why Davis Wiki is worth a visit. This one would maybe appeal to people who already "lick" the wiki and might think "Hey me too, cool." —MikeIvanov

2005-08-18 11:49:38   Lol. It was more of a joke than anything. Feel free to delete lol. I did print 4 on glossy photo paper tho lol —MichaelGiardina

2005-08-19 11:57:45   Haha. I love the lick poster. I'd go to Davis Wiki if I saw that. Good job Giardina! —LizethCazares

2005-09-13 16:17:32   I saw "A Davis resource that doesn't suck" -that made me a Wikivangelest! I love that. —SteveDavison

2005-11-11 08:06:15   I wish to praise whomever drew the "YOU ARE THE EDITOR". It's clever, and drawn well. —SteveDavison

2005-11-11 14:14:02   Thanks, it was Philip's idea and I redrew it cleaned up and in vector form. —MikeIvanov

2005-12-11 13:48:42   The end of the quarter is coming up. Use up those 100 sheets and print some flyers! Remember: CLM is enforcing a hard-limit of 100 pages before they start charging you. (It used to be a soft-limit of 100 and a hard-limit of 200). —ArlenAbraham

2006-09-27 19:00:42   Freshmen start their first classes very soon! We should print out some flyers/make new ones and post them around campus or perhaps make hats out of them. —PhilipNeustrom

2007-09-28 12:38:44   The Fall 2005, single sentence fliers were reused for a campaign on September 27, 2007. —DavidPoole

2007-10-04 14:41:01   I'm interested to make phone number wallet cards for the [madison]Madison, but I can't seem to find the right supplies. Does anybody know what brand the folding business cards are and where I could get them? Also, if you have the template for the Davis cards, that would be great, otherwise, I'll just make up my own. Thanks in advance. (Leave links/files on my [madison]Madison Wiki Page.) —KarlMogel
