Our team of mad scientists has been working hard to expand the Language & Branding options so you can extend your brand experience to your catalogs. You can now add a background image, background color, logo and favicon to your publications.

All branding options can be found in “Language & Branding”, which is available in the Pro & Enterprise versions of Publitas. If you're using our Basic version, feel free to reach out to us for more info about our other two versions.

For the background we recommend using a widescreen image with a resolution of 1366x768 px. This way the image will fit on most of your customers’ displays. The image will be centered horizontally and will then scale or crop to fit. Here’s how that works:

Adding a logo

To add a logo to your publications, simply upload a PNG, JPG or GIF. Once you press Save, the logo will be added to all on- and offline publications within the selected group. The logo is first shown in the loader and is then displayed left of your cover.

For the logo we recommend a maximum size of 300x300 px. This way the logo will properly fit on all supported devices.

Adding a favicon

A favicon is a small icon associated with a webpage. You'll usually see it in the corner of your browser or when you bookmark a page.
