Traditional Billboards

Set up your canvas in CMYK with the resolution at 18ppi. For a 14’x48′ billboard, your canvas size will be 168″ x 576″ (3000px x 875px). If you are applying a bleed, be sure to not place important information too close to the edge. A 3″ bleed and a 3″ pocket is recommended. Acceptable file formats are original vector, AI, PDF or JPEG.

LED Billboards

We recommend creating your content in the same pixel dimensions as the desired display. If you create your design in a larger size than the display, be sure to resize your piece to the exact pixel dimension of the display. Rich, vibrant, saturated colors with a great deal of contrast between the background and design elements. Dark outlines or drop-shadows will help with contrast and to separate text from the background. Avoid using white or pastel backgrounds as your content can actually repel the viewer’s eyes, especially in low-light conditions. Make your message concise and bold, and easily understood at a glance. LED billboards supportĀ 6 rotating ads with an 8 second duration.
