How are billboard vinyls finished?

Billboard vinyls are finished with bleed and pockets. Lets use a 14'x48 as an example: The 14'x48' is the LIVE AREA, or what is viewed while driving down the road. However, with standard finishing, this would be have a finished size of 15'x49', which the additional 6" on all sides is bleed that also includes the pocket. Pockets are essentially where the vinyl is folded over, creating a loop and seamed creating a "pocket" which allows installers to insert the fiberglass gripper bars through providing an attachment point for the ratchet straps which will be used to keep the vinyl in place.


  

What format should the file be designed in?

Your design should be created as CMYK and we can accept a wide range of files! However, our preferred formats would be AI, EPS, PDF, PSD, or TIFF. JPEGS can also work, however, with compression, these often render an image of less quality than the others. If the graphic is not flattened its always best to convert all fonts and shapes to outlines, and include all linked images within the file.

If you have yet to have your art designed, please feel free to contact us via e-mail and we can send templates per your request.
