Volume is a pseudo-open platform. This means that you need to submit a demo of your content to be verified as a creator before you can freely post on the app. This is done to ensure that all creators meet community guidelines and quality.
Note: Read the guidelines below carefully before submitting the pilot lineup.
A Pilot lineup is a series of your first 3 posts that will go up on Volume.
Similar to how a Pilot Episode allows a TV show production house to decide whether or not to go forward with the show, a Pilot Lineup allows our Editors and Designers to check if your content falls in line with our quality guidelines.
Once you are given creator access, you are free to post how much ever you want as long as you follow the guidelines.
The Stack cover art is the cover art of your entire publication. The Stack cover art should be 1080 pixels in width and 1920 pixels in height (9:16 Aspect Ratio).
The name of the Stack should be prominently visible on the cover art.
The description should contain a brief synopsis of what your Stack is about.
A post within a Stack is a carousel that can contain of a maximum of 20 slides.
There should be a minimum of 4 slides (including the cover).
Each slide is 1080 pixels in width and 1920 pixels in height (9:16 Aspect Ratio). Similar to Instagram stories.
The first slide is always the thumbnail and acts as the cover art to your post.
The cover art has to be prominent, legible and should contain the title of the Post. The cover art should not contain any paragraphs.
The text in the paragraphs have to be legible on mobile devices. Please check the final images on your phone to make sure the text is legible.
Make sure every content goes through a Grammar check. You can use free tools like Grammarly to correct spelling mistakes and grammar before designing a post.
Refrain from using content that promotes hate speech, racism, or violence.
Use the form below to submit your pilot lineup.
Make sure the images are in PNG/JPEG format.
Each post should be put inside a folder like how it's described above.
All 3 folders containing the posts need to be compressed into a Zip Folder while submitting the Pilot Lineup.
Once accepted, you will receive an email and become a part of our exclusive Creator Community on Discord.
You can use any image editing tool like Canva, Photoshop, or Figma to make carousels on Volume. We’ve made a Figma Kit with pre-built templates for any non-designer to get started with creating beautiful carousels on Volume.
