Digital Signage

Digital Signage is currently non-operational on campus.  To promote your events, please make sure your event is listed on the SMC event page.  if you would like additional promotion, send a direct message to @stmarysca on Instagram with a link to your SMC event page by each Thursday in order to be featured the week of your event.

The digital signage is located across campus. Digital Signage allows students and faculty to share upcoming events with the community as a whole.

For questions, email digitalsignage@stmarys-ca.edu

Image Requirements:

When submitting signage, please note that the size requirement is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

If your image is smaller than 1920x1080 pixels, it will stretch to fill the screen, becoming pixelated and difficult to read.

If your image is too small to fit the digital signage system, it will be placed into a 1920 x 1080 sized template to avoid pixelation. (please note that this will take 1-2 business days)

Acceptable Formats: JPEG or PNG.

Templates

You can use this 1920x 1080 template which can be edited with the online tool Canva.  Clicking the button below will prompt you to sign up for a free account in order to edit.

What to Include:

Your announcement should be clear, concise and engaging, and must include:

  • Event Title
  • Date and Time
  • Location
  • Contact Information
  • Brief Description of Program

Best Practices:

  • Do not use unreadable fonts.
  • Do not crowd out your message with too many graphics.
  • Don't include too much text.
  • Submit your posting as early as possible* -- we recommend submitting two weeks ahead.
  • All postings are subject to the same criteria utilized for physical postings around campus

Remember, digital signage is a visual medium. Your post will be viewable for 10 seconds at a time - make your information legible!

How to Submit:

Submitting digital signage must be done while on Saint Mary's College's wifi network on campus. Attempts to submit signage from personal wifi networks while off-campus will result in an error message.
