A PDF artwork template for Curve base graphic panels.

PDF artwork template

This PDF file provides a graphic template for a Curve base graphic panel (400mm x 153mm). Note that these dimensions are for the final visible graphic area for your artwork, but please also allow for bleed on all four sides so that when the panel is guillotined, there are no issues with ink cracking along the edge or alignment problems. The bleed areas are also indicated on the template.

The PDF is intended for artwork designers using any software other than InDesign. If you are using InDesign, please download the InDesign template files instead (here for 2050mm or here for 2250mm height on your Curve panels). Please also take a moment to download and peruse our large format print guidelines.

Dimensions: the quarter rule

When working with large format graphics, it is possible to download, open, amend, save, output and rip the artwork files at full size, full resolution. However, the huge file size of this artwork would significantly slow down all of these processes. So we have optimised our workflows to use artwork set up at a quarter of its final output size, at a resolution of 300dpi, giving much smaller files without noticeably reducing the output quality.

So for clarity, the artwork you set up should have the following dimensions:

  • Curve base graphic panel (400mm x 153mm):
    Artwork size: 100mm x 38.25mm
    Bleed: 1.25mm on all sides
  • Visible area (400mm x 110mm):
    Artwork size: 100mm x 27.5mm
    Area location: 6.25mm from the top, 4.5mm from the bottom of the artwork
