NPR One: How do I upload my station logos?

Your logo can be found in several prominent areas on the NPR Platforms to identify your station. You will need to upload two logos - a large logo and a small logo. Each one is used in different areas of the NPR One, NPR.org and the NPR News app.

The large logo appears on the Station Hello card while the Station Hello plays when the app is launched. The large logo is used if there is no image associated with a local story, when a local story surfaces in the flow and does not have an image, the large logo appears on the lock screen instead.

The large logo is also used on the Station Navigation Drawer in NPR One and is also used on the NPR.org website when users localize to your station and the logo is used in the NPR News app.

Preparing Your Two Logos for the NPR Platform

Preparing Your Small Logo

Specifications:

  • Acceptable File Format - .gif
  • 72 dpi (dots per inch)
  • Dimensions: 138 pixels wide  by 46 pixels high
  • Background: your file must have a white background
Please note: Your logo does not need to fill the entire 138 pixels wide  by 46 pixels high space, but should scale to the edge of the canvas on at least one dimension with no whitespace or margins on that side. If your logo doesn't conform to this exact ratio, you can use white space to achieve this logo size.
