Before and After: It’s Summertime to Use Your Media Kit

Summer is finally here! Can you believe it?! Now that the season has officially changed and people are out and about enjoying the beautiful weather, you have a wonderful opportunity to grab their attention with your display!


Now is a great time to freshen things up a bit. Even if you just change the background color or the text color on your existing presentations, it will look new to passersby and be more likely to catch their eye.

Do you have any specials, sales, events, or announcements coming up for the summer? If so, get them created and published to your display right away!

The best part of updating your sign for summer is that the Media Kit includes so many images and animations that you can use. When it comes to creating summertime content, choose from a large variety of files.

To utilize your Media kit, first make sure you have it downloaded and that you have all the latest available content. Just follow the directions in the Knowledge Base articles below.
