The items in all our Communications Kits are split into Print and Digital assets.
What is the difference?
- Print items do what it says on the tin. They are professionally printed out, such as leaflets, posters and roller banners.
- Digital items display on a screen only, whether that’s an image on a monitor, tablet or phone screen.
How are they set up differently?
To ensure these items display correctly on print or digital, the files are set up differently.
- Designs that are going to be printed are set up using CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) so the colours print correctly.
- Designs that are purely digital content, such as email signatures and social media images, are created using RGB (Red, Green, Blue).
How should I supply logos then?
- Any logos that are going on print set up, they need to supplied in a CMYK format, same as how the file is set up for printing.
- Any logos that are going to be display digitally, they need to be supplied in a RGB format, asme as how the file is set up for screens.
If you are still not sure you have got the right logotypes, reach out to your brand or communications team who will be able to help.
When I have added my logo, it is appearing a lot smaller than I expected, and/or feels like it has been placed in a random location within the space. How can I resolve this?
With the automation process we have for our Communications Vault, it places your logo within a maximum height and width space that is pre-set.
If your logo is appearing smaller than you expect, this maybe because your logo has extra whitespace around it. The automation will include this whitespace in your logo and add it to the page.
Therefore, to ensure you logo is the most prominent, ensure you have little or no white space around it. Here is a visual guide to demonstrate this.
There is no limit on how many times you can request assets. Once you’ve completed one messaging stream and downloaded your assets, refresh the page and start again for your next messaging stream.
- This is a free text space with a maximum space of 4 lines of text, with 30 characters per line.
- If you have more than 30 characters, it will split over two lines.
- We recommend to keep your contact details as simple as possible and not give too many options, whether that be someone’s name, email and telephone number, or an internal resource area you have such as SharePoint or your intranet.
For print assets, such as posters, leaflets and roller banners, the Comms Vault provides you with the file so you are then able to send to your own printer and print to the specification you desire.
Another member of my team who is leading our communications requires access to the Comms Vault but they do not have access to the Support Portal. How can I get them access?
To access the Comms Vault, individuals require a Support Portal login. Simply raise a ticket request for a new person login, stating that they require access to the Comms Vault.
