  • Standard .BMP, .JPG, and .GIF file formats are supported. Note that some files with these extensions, such as those from some digital cameras, may contain extra file information that will prevent them from working in Point of Sale. If this occurs, use a graphics, paint, or photo application to open and re-save the file with a standard format. Tip: Test the file to see if it opens in Internet Explorer. If it does, it should work in Point of Sale.

  • Logo colors must be RGB (not CMYK) and maximum 24-bit resolution.

  • Logo file size should not exceed 100 KB. Larger file sizes may slow printing. We recommend reducing color resolution or logo dimensions to reduce file size, if necessary.

  • Point of Sale will scale the graphic, if necessary, to fit in the allotted space on a document. Some loss in graphic quality may result when scaling. For best results, use a graphics application to size your logo to the recommended sizes:

  • 40-column documents: 248 pixel maximum width

  • Letter-size documents: 381 pixel maximum width

  • The specified default logo is automatically added to your printed sales documents. Simply return here and change the default logo to print a different logo.

  • (Pro) If you use Print Designer to customize your printed document templates, you can change the size and position of the logo, use different logos for different documents, and add logos to other document types.

  • (Pro with multiple stores) Each store can define their own logos
