Keep all critical elements inside the pink safe area. Green Bleed Line Stretch fabric can be difficult to predict. We require artwork extend to the Green Bleed Line to help ensure unwanted white does not show once finished. Black Trim Line The Black Trim Line is the estimated line where the graphic will be cut. Pink Safe Area Line We recommend logos or text remain within the Pink Safe Area Line. For monitors, shelves and other accessories that require fabric to be cut please reference location of accessory on artwork. Multiple Frames Displays can be joined together in many configurations. We strongly discourage continuous lines across multiple displays. Graphics may be rotated different directions during printing which can change the amount of stretch. It's OK to break plain colors or a background between multiple frames, but stretch fabrics will present issues with straight lines or frames. Creating spaces Door Seam Dynamic spaces can be achieved through the use of angles and doors. When using frames at 90˚ angles fabrics must be double sided to avoid an obvious seam on side of frame. Curved Frames Make sure your artwork is towards the center. Objects start to stretch towards the top and bottom on curved displays. Using Text Message should be simple and quick to grasp. Avoid fine print that may be hard to read on fabric. Large vector type presents well on a display. Consider the viewing distance of 15 feet (4.5 meters) when planning a design. Use of White Using colorful images is better than white or light colors since it will minimize appearance of the frame. Depending on ambient light, frame may be more or less visible through the fabric. Images Spanning an image across multiple displays will create problems with lineup once finished since the fabric stretch varies. Images Consider using separate images in series. We recommend images used are at least 125 DPI at full size. Remember to consider the viewing distance of 15 feet (4.5 meters) when planning a design.

Cleaning Instructions Successfully cleaning your graphics depends on following the below instructions. Results may vary depending on the contaminant, how dirty the graphics are and what fabric you are cleaning. Spot Cleaning Fabric can be spot treated, as with typical laundry. Use mild soap and cold water. Machine Washing Fabric graphics can be machine washed in cold on a gentle cycle. Do Not Iron Use a hand or commercial steamer to eliminate any wrinkles or creases. Some washing machines including commercial / industrial can be extremely punishing to your fabric graphics. The most gentle washing cycle option is strongly recommended.
