Bulletins
.5″ = 1′ @ 300dpi

Hold your design to the dimensions of the structure. The structure size represents the actual image area of the billboard. Bleed your background by 6” on all four sides. This makes the overall vinyl size 1’ larger than the image area in both height and width. The production facility should make 3” pockets on the back of the vinyl for installation. This does not change the overall size of the vinyl.
