Static (brand and product)

Before creating your ad, you’ll need to prepare an image file that is sized and formatted appropriately. Common North American specifications and dimensions are listed below. Digital ad requirements vary by website/digital partner. Confirm requirements prior to finalizing assets.

Recommended ad sizes (in pixels)
  • 300 × 250
  • 728 × 90
  • 336 × 280
  • 300 × 600
  • 160 × 600
  • 320  × 100
  • 320 × 50
  • 468 × 60
     
File types
  • Formats: GIF, JPG, PNG, SWF, ZIP, or HTML5, conforming to Google specifications
  • The maximum number of files included in a .zip folder is 40.
  • Maximum size: 150 KB
     
Best practices
  • Use headlines that are consistent with your offer on your landing page.
  • Keep calls to action (CTAs) succinct; avoid terms like “Submit” or “Download”; instead say “Get…”
  • Be entertaining, convey the benefits to the prospect, and keep it simple.
     
Use of brand elements
  • Use the IDEXX logo to brand your ad so you can focus on the product name. Please note that on banner ads, logo size standards are flexible. I-space around logo should be maintained whenever possible.
  • If circles of innovation are used on banner ads, they should be the width of the “EXX” in the IDEXX logo within the ad, per brand standards. Circles of innovation can be divided horizontally to allow space for logo and I-space, as we do in our generic ads. The circles of innovation should not be used this way unless space for logo is an issue.
