A PDF artwork template for Twist flat end cap graphic panels.

PDF artwork template

This PDF file provides a graphic template for a Twist flat end cap graphic panel (all 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.

With an end cap panel, your artwork needs to span across this and the two Twist panels that it links to, so 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.

You also need to be aware that a flat end cap panel is in 3 sections – one forward-facing (the ‘cut width’) and two ‘edge’ panels that join onto your Twist panels, so the artwork should take account of this.

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). 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:

  • Twist flat end cap graphic panel heights:
    2000mm panel: artwork height 500mm
    2250mm panel: artwork height 562.5mm
    2700mm panel: artwork height 675mm
  • Twist flat end cap graphic panel width (198mm):
    Artwork width: 49.5mm
  • Cut width (80mm):
    Artwork width: 20mm
  • Edge widths x 2 (59mm):
    Artwork width: 14.75mm
  • Bleed (all panel sizes):
    12mm on the panel: 3mm on the artwork
