Your Express Video Brochures are on their way – congrats! Now comes the fun part – preparing your artwork and videos, so that you can customize your brochures when they arrive.

Follow these 5 easy steps, to insure that you can QUICKLY and PROFESSIONALLY impress everyone with your customized Express Video Brochure:

WHILE YOU WAIT…

DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE; DESIGN DECALS

Our die-cut decals currently come in two sizes: the MEDIUM A55 decals (2 decals / sheet), and the LARGE A45 decals (1 decal/sheet). To get started creating your customized artwork, visit the Templates page, and select the proper SIZE decal, in the file format you most prefer (.psd, .eps, .ai, .pdf, or .doc). You’ll want to create 3 plates: the Front Cover, Inside Left, and Rear Cover decals.

CREATE/OPTIMIZE/NAME YOUR VIDEOS

Express Video Brochures play 1-5 videos in 3 popular video file formats, all using the H264 Codec: .mov, .mp4, and .avi. Videos should be created in the 16:9 aspect ratio, and to insure playback, adhere to the recommended pixel sizes found on the Specifications page. Videos should all use the same file format, and should be named in numeric play sequence, using simple numbers (i.e. 01.avi, 02.avi, etc.).

ONCE YOUR BROCHURE ARRIVES…

TEST and PRINT YOUR DIE-CUT DECALS

So, your artwork is ready to go. But, since every printer’s feeder is different, you’ll want to print a test decal sheet first; don’t worry, each brochure comes with twice as many decals as needed. If your printer or copier’s test output is off center, simply adjust your artwork accordingly, and print another test decal. When inserting decal sheets, the small “arrow notch” corner (see illustration) should enter your printer’s feeder first.

CENTER and APPLY YOUR DIE-CUT DECALS

Die-cut decals feature a semi-permanent adhesive, so after removing them from their backing one at a time, simply center and apply them along the TOP or BOTTOM first, leaving an equal gap of 1/16” along the top or bottom edge, and two sides. Once satisfied, smooth the rest of the decal on the surface with your fingers, insuring no air pockets are trapped below the decal; repeat this for all 3 panels.

UPLOAD VIDEOS / TOP-OFF BATTERIES

Express Video Brochures can hold and play up to 5 looping videos, totaling approximately 450 mb or 950 mb (for MEDIUM A55 and LARGE A45, respectively). To upload videos from your PC or Mac, plug the USB cable to your computer, and carefully insert the mini-USB end into the video brochure’s input slot. Locate the Brochure’s file directory (w/ preloaded demo videos); drag and drop files from desktop to brochure.
