A PDF artwork template for Twist graphic panels with apertures to accommodate a 400mm VESA media mount.
PDF artwork template
This PDF file provides a graphic template for a Twist AV 400 media graphic panel (all widths and heights). 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.
When your artwork spans more than one panel (i.e. you’re linking multiple Twist panels to form a larger display), 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.
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 (navigate here, then choose the template files with the appropriate height for your display. Note that you need the ‘Twist InDesign templates’, not the ‘Twist media InDesign templates’, which are for non-VESA mounted media stands). Please also take a moment to download and peruse our large format print guidelines.
The AV 400 media panel needs to accommodate two apertures, through which the connectors for your TV or monitor protrude. Please note that the vertical position of the apertures is not optional; it is fixed to ensure stability of the stand. The horizontal position must be central to the panel.
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:
- Twist graphic panel widths:
700mm panel: artwork 175mm
800mm panel: artwork 200mm
900mm panel: artwork 225mm
1000mm panel: artwork 250mm
- Twist graphic panel heights:
2000mm panel: artwork 500mm
2250mm panel: artwork 562.5mm
2700mm panel: artwork 675mm
- Aperture size (150mm x 480mm):
Artwork size: 37.5mm x 120mm
- Horizontal space between apertures (180mm):
Artwork size: 45mm
- Aperture vertical position (1190mm):
Artwork vertical position: 297.5mm
- Bleed (all panel sizes):
12mm on the panel: 3mm on the artwork
