Digital Signs

The College of Education has 12 digital signs throughout its 4-building campus. Here is information about posting on the signs, and a link to see what is currently on display on the signs.

Digital signs are located in each building occupied by the College: Chambers, Rackley, CEDAR, and Keller.

How to submit an announcement

Members of our College community are welcome to submit messages for inclusion on digital signage. Suggestions for messages include:

  • Announcements for upcoming lectures, brown bags, receptions, etc., that are open to the general University community.
  • Upcoming student organization meetings
  • Welcome messages for visitors - “Welcome to our guests from X University,” for example
  • Advisory notices for students – upcoming deadlines, etc.
  • Congratulatory announcements for faculty, staff and student accomplishments
  • Other suggestions regarding the signs are also welcome.

If you would like to place messages on these signs, please send your requests to edrelations@psu.edu.

Design your own sign

If you would like to design the look of your own message for the signs, please create an image according to the following specifications:

  • NOTE: Please DO NOT use PowerPoint to design digital signs. The resulting image is not the correct size or resolution. Signs created in PowerPoint will be returned to be recreated in Photoshop or another photo or graphics application.
  • If creating the sign in Photoshop, please submit the .psd file. If not, please submit the image as a .jpg file. Files sent as PDF or other formats will be returned to the sender to be converted into .jpg files.
  • The optimal resolution for digital signs is 300 ppi. If that is not possible, make the resolution as high as possible, and at least 72 ppi. Images at a resolution lower than 72 ppi cannot be used and will be returned to the sender.
  • Image dimensions: width of 6000 pixels by a height of 2500 pixels.
  • Recommended number of words per sign: 50 or fewer.

    Send the image as an e-mail attachment to Wanda Wasilko at .
    The signage software does not support animation or sound. The Office of College Relations may edit any sign submission.

    Deadlines

    • To effectively promote an event, signs should run for at least a week before the event takes place.
    • If you are sending a completed sign at the proper dimensions (listed above), please send your sign at least two business days before the sign should be added into the rotation (one week and two days before the event date).
    • If you are sending information you wish to have made into a digital sign, please send your information at least a week before the sign should be added into the rotation (two weeks before the event date).
