Lamar Digital Display Templates

Setting up Digital Art

Color Mode

Digital Displays produce color through additive process, RGB, instead of the subtractive method, CMYK. Colorsare produced when adding varying amounts of red, green and blue. White is produced when all three colors are combined. In many cases, one color may slightly over power another, giving the whites on adigital display a tint of either red, green or blue. Black isthe total absence of color in this process and is usually displayed by the backing of the display. When creating black, make sure your values are R-0 G-0 B-0. Convert all PMS colors to RGB.

Color Matching

Create in RGB color Mode. Preferred color profile is sRGB.

Acceptable Formats

Save all RGB artwork as a .JPG, .PNG, or .BMP format at maximum quality. Submit the file to your Lamar representative for uploading.

*Design Tips

Rich, bold background colors work better during theday, while pastel backgrounds are more vibrant at night.
