Delivering a Valued Stamp of Trust for the Media Industry

Certificate logo specifications

On each ABC certificate there is an opportunity for a media owner to personalise the cover with a product logo and a cover image or screenshot.

This page is intended to describe the specifications of the images so that they can be displayed on the certificate in the best format.

The images are re-used for each subsequent certificate unless replacement images are provided to us before the next certificate is released.

ABC certificates are in PDF format and are intended to be viewed on screen and when printed. The images therefore must be of adequate quality and resolution for printing for both purposes.

Image guidelines & use

  • The images used must be representative of the product being audited
  • They can not contain any unsubstantiated claims about the product, eg The Biggest Selling “XX in YY”
  • By supplying images to us you agree that you have full permission for them to be used on our certificates, our website and other marketing material.

Dimensions (12cm x 3cm max)

There are two locations on the certificate available for your images. Both share the same dimensions.

  • 12cm wide x 3cm high (equates roughly to 1400px by 350px)

ImageDimensions

Resolution - High Resolution (300dpi)

An image made for a website may not be suitable for use in our PDF certificates because of their low resolution. They can look distorted and blurry when used in a PDF.

Images should be high resolution - we recommend 300dpi.  Below is an example of how a low resolution image could look when used on a PDF.

Low Resolution (72dpi web image) 
Low resolution    

High Resolution (300dpi)
High Resolution

Image format - JPG

Images need to be uploaded in JPG format.  If your image is in another format and you are unable to convert it to JPG then please contact us and we will try to help. Please note that GIF and PNG’s are usually website ready images and are probably not high enough resolution.

Colour mode - RGB (8 Bit)

Images need to be saved in RGB 8bit mode. If you are in any doubt about this setting then please just send us your image and we will try our best to convert to the preferred format for you.

In summary:

High Resolution JPG, up to 12cm wide by 3cm high, saved in RGB 8 bit mode.
