artwork specifications

Send your layout in a jpeg or pdf file format – CMYK.
With Corel, Illustrator, Freehand, or any vector layout—always convert all text to curves or outlines.

Use a thin black outline if your layout background is bassically white.
No need to include a bleed on any part of your layout.

Scaling Guidelines
A good rule to follow when starting with the correct scale for your design would be the following: Anything 14’ or larger should be built at a 1/2” = 1’ scale.

Sizes 13’ and smaller should be built at a 1”=1’scale.


Bulletin 168” x 576” (14’ x 48’) ………………………………. 3.5” x 12”
bleed – A.K.A. “Jumbo”125” x 272” (10’5” x 22’8”) …….12.5” x 27.2”

Photos & Scans

When useing a digital camera, use the highest pixel setting possible.
When scaning, scan at 300 DPI with the image at an average size of about 5″x5″. If in doubt, send us the layout and we will check for sharpness.

Use a thin black guideline if your basic layout is a white background.
