ScreenCloud PosterMyWall App Guide

Take control over how your images, graphics, and text are displayed on screen with ScreenCloud’s PosterMyWall app. PosterMyWall is a third-party service which provides you with tools and templates to easily create content like posters, digital notices and signs. You can use an embed code to get your PosterMyWall creations across your digital screens in minutes.

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s PosterMyWall App

1.1. Get started by clicking here and selecting “Get App”. This will prompt you to either log into your existing ScreenCloud account, or sign up for our 14-day free trial in order to use the PosterMyWall app and other available apps within our App Store.

1.2. Once you’ve logged in, you can select “Add this app” from the top right-hand corner.

2. Configure your PosterMyWall app

Next, you’ll need to copy and paste an embed code from the content you’d like to use from PosterMyWall. Here’s how to find your embed code. Please note, PosterMyWall is separate from ScreenCloud and is a third-party service. You can learn more about their pricing by clicking here.

2.1. Log into your PosterMyWall account.

2.2. Click on any of your creatives.

Here’s some help on using the PosterMyWall tool to edit signs: if you have a paid PosterMyWall subscription then you will be prompted to start sharing and downloading the content. If you don’t have a subscription, you’ll have to buy the downloads, however if you’ve already bought the design you can make any changes for free. You can use any applicable promotional codes that apply if purchasing an order as well.
