Hope someone can help me out with this.
I'm trying to design a billboard. I'll be working primarily in PS and Illustrator.
My issue is that I'm having trouble setting up my document due to the format and size. I know that it's going to be made to scale, perhaps 1:10 but I still can't figure out how to set it up.
Here are the specs:
Board Size: 14' (h) x 40' (w) - feet
Layout Size: 7" (h) x 20" (w)- inches
Bleed Size: 7.5" (h) x 20.5" (w) - inches
Safety Size: 6.5" (h) x 19.5" (w) - inches
Can someone please help!!
Are you unclear on the meaning of the terms "bleed" and "safety"?
If you create the image in photoshop you will need to include the bleed (unless it’s pure white maybe), because that area will be possibly needed for technical reasons.
