A PDF artwork template for Curve graphic banners (2050mm high).
PDF artwork template
This PDF file provides a graphic template for a Curve banner, otherwise known as a 3-panel kit. The banner comprises two Curve single graphic panels (850mm x 2050mm) and a joining flexi graphic panel (425mm x 2050mm) in the middle. This leads to a final artwork size for the banner of 2125mm x 2050mm.
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 panels are guillotined, there are no issues with ink cracking along the edge or alignment problems. The bleed areas are also indicated on the template.
When your artwork spans more than one panel as it does in this banner, please ensure that you send the artwork as a spread rather than individual files for each graphic panel. You only need to add bleed around the outside of the spread, not each panel, and our output software automatically calculates and applies the bleed for the edges of the internal joins.
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 banner (850mm x 2050mm):
Artwork size (for the spread): 531.25mm x 512.5mm
Bleed: 3mm on all sides
- 2 x Curve single graphic panels (850mm x 2050mm):
Artwork size: 212.5mm x 512.5mm
- Flexi graphic panel (425mm x 2050mm):
Artwork size: 106.25mm x 512.5mm
