Artwork Guidelines

File Formats:

  • When submitting your finalized file, we accept ai, tif, eps and pdf files.
  • We cannot print billboards from Power Point, Word or Publisher.

Creative Guideance

Outdoor advertising is mobile, constantly on the go for a short window the consumer has just a few seconds to read your message.  We have come up with some helpful tips to get your message across quickly to the consumer

Your Message:

  • Make sure your company name is legible
  • Use short copy we suggest seven words or less
  • Keep your advertisment clean


  • Choose bold and clean fonts such as a sans serif.
  • When using decorative fonts make it minimal


  • Use bright and bold colors. Remember the backdrop for most billboards are blue skies and trees.
  • Use contrasting colors. They are easier to read at such a far distance

Testing your design:

  • Print out your design and tape it to the wall. Go to the other side of the room and see if you can read the message.
  • Show someone your design for about 7 seconds, take it away and ask what they saw on the design.
