Digital specifications

For production enquiries, please email help@educationhq.com with your six-digit ad ID and your company's name.

General notes

Compatibility

PNG is the preferred file format for digital artwork. We use Campaign Monitor for email campaigns and Google DoubleClick for website campaigns, so supplied artwork should adhere to these platforms' standards.

Email clients inconsistently support animated GIF files, so we do not accept this file type for any EducationWeek campaigns. We will only accept PNG or JPG files.

Colour

All colour assets should be set as RGB.

Flash

Flash is not recommended for advertising on EducationHQ. If supplied, the maximum animation length is 30 seconds, while the maximum frame rate is 24 fps.

  • Images should generally be no bigger than 100kb each, and be a JPG or PNG. We do not accept GIF files.

  • Subject lines: 65 characters is the recommended length. Can be shorter or longer.
  • Do not include download links to .PDF or .DOC files as this will increase the likelihood that your EDM will be registered as spam. Instead, link to the file elsewhere.

  • If you require assistance in the creation of HTML for your solus EDM, then we can offer this service for $600+GST
  • To create HTML we will require either: PDF mock-up of your desired look and feel including all content with images also supplied separately; alernatively for simpler designs we will require a written brief together with content and images.
  • Please allow an additional 2-3 days if we are required to produce HTML on your behalf.
  • For ongoing customers, we can amend an update HTML to existing templates as an additional service for $250+GST.
