Templates and Best Practices
  • Most screens on the AxisTV system have a 16:9 ratio and require announcements to be 1280 pixels by 720 pixels.
  • If using PowerPoint to create a dflyer, format the presentation to 17.7 x 10 inches. You may also reference the guide on how to create dflyers in PowerPoint.
  • The Modlin Center for the Arts accepts arts and entertainment related dflyers that are sized to fit their screens. Dflyer size must be 1080 x 608 pixels (15" x 8.4").
  • The Boatwright Memorial Library and the Parsons Music Library typically only post dflyers related to library events and services.
  • Final dflyers need to be saved and shared as .jpeg.
Submitting a Dflyer

Certain units have restrictions regarding submission of dflyers.

  • The Tyler Hayens Commons is a popular place to promote events on campus. Given the high volume of submissions, there are specific guidelines and restrictions for their screens.
  • Posting in the Gottwald Science Center is limited to events and announcements that pertain to math, the sciences, or services for students. Exceptions are often made for large, university-wide events.

Submissions should include the dates of your event and how long you would like for the dflyer to display. Most units prefer that the dflyer be submitted in .jpg format.
