F.A.Q

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long is my message displayed for?

Typically billboards are booked for a minimum of one month.

You can book one site for multiple months or several and move your billboard skin from site to site to give greater coverage.

What is an appropriate planning window?

Generally you should plan billboards three months in advance, bearing in mind some billboard locations may book out six to twelve months in advance. You should allow yourself approximately one month for the creative process and printing of the billboard skin/s.

On occasion, we can have some last minute advertising opportunities prior to each posting period, in this case the whole process can be booked and turned around in less than a week.

What is the process to get my advertisement on the billboard?

1.Source availabilities and book billboard sites.

2.Create artwork – ask us for artwork specifications or we can do it for you.

3.Production of billboard print – ask us for specifications (site specific) and for a production quote.

4.Installation of billboard skin.
