  • 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)

          Thank you, don't know exactly but it looks similar and portraits the same feel as DIN, such a great typeface.

          Thank you again, much appreciate it!...

          CS6 is perfectly fine. Even though it can be awkward to ask someone to save down to CS6 for you if they send you a file, it's still fine in most cases. For what you're doing you could probably use original...

          You don't say how long you go without anything to do, but I think what you're describing is common. I experienced this at my second in-house job. There would be days with little to do, then all the sudden...

          It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

          I would certainly have a clause...
