Flyers

Flyers should have a simple and attractive design to catch people’s eye. Ensure you distribute them to the appropriate audience (e.g. households surrounding the event area).

Posters

Posters can be displayed in cafés, local schools, shopping centres, City libraries, community and recreation centres and community notice boards. Ensure you ask relevant people for permission before putting up your poster.

Signage and banners

Before installing any signage (e.g. signs on verges) ensure you have approval from local authorities or owners.

The City of Cockburn has a number of community signs where not-for-profit groups can display banners for free. Submit an online application
