CentreStack Full Branding Template

Branding and White-Label Support

CentreStack includes branding and white-label support. Out of the box, the product is white-label ready and there are many items brand-able, such as the web portal and the included white-label clients. However, for service providers that require full branding service, most of the branding needs to happen at build time and requires the following information prior to the full branding service. The items include the artworks, End User License Agreements, and code signing certificates.

If the out-of-box branding options work for you, you can go straight to the cluster manager branding section and configure the branding yourself. If you need full-branding service instead, this article documents the full branding support and the required materials.

Web Portal Branding

Web portal branding is covered 100% by the cluster manager. There is a branding section inside the cluster manager. Most of the items required in here can be directly applied to the web portal branding section.  See page Branding Options for web portal and white-label related options.

  • Company Name: ______________Gladinet_______________________
    This will create c:\Program Files\Gladinet folder.

    • This will create c:\program files\gladinet\CentreStack drive
    • This will also be the title of the program window
  • Please specify a default drive letter. ______Z:\_______

    • This shows up in Windows Explorer
  • Company Text Logo:
    • transparent background (.png format)
    • Mostly grey/black composition
    • dimension : 130x30 (pixels)

Windows Client Branding

  • Product Logo
    • This is the logo that will show on desktop, taskbar and etc representing the product.
    • This logo will also be used in add\remove programs, windows explorer and the taskbar.
    • 128x128 (png format, with transparency preserved, no white background, use transparent background)
    • 32-bit true color
    • Also need 1024x1024 (png format, for iPhone App icon)

    Best Practice: Since this product logo will be used in different places, from 1024x1024 (iOS), to 48x48 (windows desktop application icon) to 16x16 (windows taskbar icon), We recommend the product logo
    • Simple to view when it is small 16x16
    • Close to square or circle that occupy most of the space.
    • Simple in color and graphic details
  • Installer Header Background 1

    This is shown at the first screen on the installer
    • Since the installer will put black text on it, the background is best with light color, not dark color
    • 500x70 (pixels)
    • Please Specify RGB values for the background if it is a single color background. (Eg. #C7C8CA)
  • Installer Header Background 2

    This is the second bitmap, 500x70. It is required to keep most of the top, left part (left of logo) because the installer will need to put some words next to it. It is Ok to put some text on the bottom.
  • (optional 16x16 32bit) Animation icons for connecting:
  • (optional 16x16 32bit) Disabled icon:
  • (optional 16x16 32bit) Product icon for systray: (recommend same as product icon)

  • EULA (This will replace the Gladinet EULA) .
    The file needs to be in either text format or in RTF format.
  • Code Signing Certificate.
    This will be used to sign the windows binaries. (For User Account Control, sometimes, you will see UAC prompt about elevated privilege. The company name on the certificate will be shown). Also for installer, Windows will ask, do you want to install app from [company name], which is from the Code Signing Certificate.

iOS Application Branding

For iOS Application, you will first need to apply for an iOS Developer account in your company's name. You will pay Apple $99/year for the developer account. After that, you have an iTunes Connect account to upload the iOS application bundle to your account inside the Apple App Store. The application will show up under your company's name, instead of CentreStack's name. Check out the iOS Developer Program.

  • 260x50 Logo: PNG format, with transparent background. This logo will show at the iOS app login page
  • 1024x1024 product icon (This icon will be used for iTune Connect Application Publishing)
  • Testing accounts (iOS Application submission requires a test account for review purpose)

Android Application Branding

You will need to acquire a Google Play account first. We will provide 2 APK files. First APK file is signed by Gladinet so you can test it on your testing device and capture screenshots for Google Play application publishing. The second APK file is an un-signed APK file that you can sign yourself. Check out Android Signing your application.
  • 512x512 Application Launch icon. (Normally this can be derived from the 1024x1024 icon)
  • Product icon in the size of 32x32, 48x48, 72x72, 96x96. (Normally this can be derived from the 1024x1024 icon)

Mac OS X Application Branding

Mac desktop Application branding will use the same artwork from Windows, with the following additions.

  • Installer (DMG file) background image. (Width=500, Height=350, format=png)
  • Installer (PKG) background (width=620, height=418, format=png)
    • The logo on the background needs to be at the top-left, and width< 100
    • The middle part will have text box (From Mac OS X) on top, so recommend the background image being light so have enough contrast to focus on the text.
