Sizing of Images

Sizing of completed graphics can vary from the size specified or the size denoted in your file by plus/minus ¼” inch per each foot of image. This means that an image specified as 4’ X 8’ can be completed at sizes ranging from 3’ 10” X 7’ 10” to 4’ 2” X 8’ 2”.

In most cases printed output will not vary this much and will be very close to the specified size. However, instability in a material or finishing restrictions can contribute to variances in finished sizes. For example, rigid materials that require routing to finish cut will be the size requested less the amount of material cut away by the router bit.

As a rule, the file you supply should be full size and in proportion. If the completed graphic is over 20 feet in either direction the file can be downsized in proportion. The most common is 50%. However, if the file is downsized the file resolution needs to be increased proportionally to maintain a minimum of 100 dpi resolution on the printed graphic.

If you need additional material beyond the actual graphic itself this needs to be incorporated into the file size. Gregory, Inc. is not liable for you not receiving enough margin material if you did not incorporate your needed margin into your file. For example, you order a flex face with a visual opening of 10 feet by 10 feet and you send a file sized to 10 feet by 10 feet. However, you want 2 inches of image additional all around past the visual opening and you want an additional 6 inches all around for attachment to a frame.

This means you really want a finished face that is 11 feet 4 inches square. Your file must reflect the full 11 feet 4 inch size to insure you receive what you want. The square foot cost for the graphic will be based upon the total graphic surface area including margins and bleeds.
