|DIGITAL FILE SPECIFICATIONS
|It is not necessary to create your project at 100% of the final size. You may scale so that the dimensions are proportional to the final size. Be sure to note this scaling.
Please provide 1/8" of bleed on all sides of your final print dimensions.
For banner specs please contact Stephen Welch.
