If you’ve selected Graphical Menu Layouts as your Base Design here are some graphics you should prepare before continuing:
Most logos should be created at 700 pixels wide (at 72 dpi). Most important is to save the logo as a .png file so that it is transparent.
Creating a custom home background is optional. Grandstand does offer some standard options.
Solid Fill Color
Under Fonts & Colors -> Home ->Home Page Solid Color you can select one of your identified colors as the background and leave it at that.
In Grandstand, there are a number of stock backgrounds already loaded for you to choose from. Simply select the background and save. No custom design required!
Custom Background Graphic
If you use your own graphic please keep these in mind:
These are the most important part of the Graphical Menu Layout as these are the graphics that will be the links. Unlike icons, most link images will include the name of the menu item. Size can vary from full width (900 pixels wide at 72 dpi) to 1/3 width (300 pixels wide at 72 dpi). These must load before the app will open so file size is important to pay attention to. In addition, these will stretch to fill all available horizontal space. There is no limit to how many you can have on a page as it will scroll. Save as .png if needing transparency or .jpg if not. Below are some examples of graphic link images that can be used.
Once you have your design elements you are ready to combine them into a design. If you switch to a different Base Design at any point you will not lose your progress on setting up Graphical Menu Layouts. Please note that the preview area does not accurately reflect how it will look on all devices:
When you are ready to go or just want to test out your progress hit the ‘Update To App’ button in the top right of the Home - Layout & Design page. Although the app will refresh itself every two minutes you can speed up the process by exiting the app and coming back into it.Layout Publishing
