About graphic text
Your message text should be legible on a TV screen. The suggested minimum text size for VBB messages is 24pt. Text smaller than 24pt will be difficult to read on a TV screen, especially at a distance.
Larger text sizes should be used for important information, such as your event title, location, date and time.
Acceptable file formats
The following image formats can be submitted in black and white or full-color. Black and white images will be left black and white unless you specify colorization (please allow extra time for colorization).
