My Artwork Wasn't Approved, What Do I Do Next?

Review our Billboard Design Guidelines and get help with redesigning your ad here.

 

Blurry/Stretched

Try re-uploading your design in a higher resolution and let our resize tool do the rest of the work for you! If you continue to have problems, consider our Billboard Artwork Service and our team of designers can help you get your design in shape.


No Clear Identity

Make sure your name or business is easy to find on Google. Make sure it's easily legible with large, bold text in your design. A phone number alone will not qualify as an identity and needs a url, clear business name, or social media profile with it.


Legibility

Make sure to use clear fonts with high contrast colors. Avoid script fonts. Keep word count to 15 words or less on the entire ad. Make sure important information is easy to read with clear fonts and colors.


Poor Design

Selfies or photos without a business name or clear intention cannot be approved. Consider our instant artwork tool (in the Blip Marketplace) or our design request services.


Text Message or QR Code

QR codes and texting campaigns aren’t allowed in most states as they encourage texting while driving. Because of this, the only board that allows QR codes or texting campaigns is our Times Square board.


Sexually Explicit

Billboards are for everyone and nudity or exposed skin will be rejected automatically. 


Substances

Substance laws vary by state and by sign owner’s personal preference. If you are repeatedly rejected for substances, consider trying a different billboard in our system in a separate area, town, or state.


Verbally Explicit

Please censor the entire word rather than just one part of it. Example: $&@% rather than sh*t

If you're a musician ensure that your music has a parental advisory warning on it if applicable.


Personal Ad

This specific billboard does not allow personal ads. Consider applying to a different billboard in our system.


Negative

Blip does not allow derogatory statements against opposing political sides. Consider a campaign promoting your political position and strengths.


No “Paid for by”

Add the text “Paid for by _______” to your billboard design.


Divisive

This campaign may be too politically charged and/or not acceptable for a G-rated media setting. Consider either a toned down version of your campaign or advertising a different business.


Competitor

Some sign owners have contracts with various other companies that may compete with your product and can not contractually allow your design to display on their specific sign. Consider trying a different billboard in our system.
