    I designed and applied vinyl car graphics and wraps for a number of years when I was working in the sign industry.

    It is true that door handles are best avoided, but sometimes it is not possible,...

    The back is much easier 'cause the excursion has a big back window and being that it's a big truck, the whole thing is pretty wide but I also want something on the sides so I can be seen from all sides....

    I really didn't define what I meant by important. For that matter, I'll still leave it fuzzy since there's really no way to objectively measure such a thing.

    As for Comic Sans, I'd say it's...

    ISitude, thanks. You know, things would be soo much simpler if people just did what they're supposed to. ESPECIALLY if they have gotten paid. Oh well. Anyway, wraps are cool as hell and although I really...

  • Live Format/Border. Confused!

    Hey there!

    I have a short question.

    I have the assignment to do an artwork on following format.
    --
    Format: 22.75 inches x 35 inches

    Attention: 1" border on the format so
    Live format: 20.75 x 33 inches
    --

    Is the 1" border meant as a bleed box?
    1" would be to much, wouldn't it?

    Thanks!!

    It sounds like you are talking about a LIVE AREA, which is 1" in from the trim, meaning you shouldn't have text or important information outside of this area, think of it like an obligatory 1" margin.

    EDIT, It could also be referring to a portion covered by a frame, so the mechanical size is 22.75 x 35, but the visible size is 20.75 x 33, in which case you may want to give yourself an even bigger margin.

      Great, thank you so much!

      Is 22.75 inches x 35 inches a standard format in US? In germany its pretty uncommon...

      PS: The artwork is for a studio in Chicago where I will do my internship in summer. So i want to do everything right. I have to deliver the project tomorrow

        I can't help you there, I'm in Canada, its an odd size IMO, but then again some OOH ad spaces are weird sizes (and shapes)
