First thing I think would be compiling a lits of good locations along with the rules of that location, and contacts if needed.  I know umass boston has a lot of places to post fliers, but they have to be aproved and stamped.  There is also a time frame involved, two weeks if memory serves.  I'm sure most college do something similar, and many businesses.

So what should be a good strategy for not only getting a good poster
designed and made up (we're good at that part) but also printing them
out and distributing them to people to put up at places like this?

Is it something you'd be willing to investigate Bill? I know I could do
all the design and writing so we got that part covered, just the
organisation of sending them out and getting people to put them up I

I figured maybe we could have a photo thing where people take along
their cameras to take a picture of the flyer in it's new home to put up
on a gallery.
