Reason for adding “Bleed”

Do you see the difference?

This is why you want to have a bleed of ⅛” or ¼” when you prepare a file. When you cut the business card with the guillotine cutter, the backside is clean but the front side is ROUGH as you see the image above.

Whether your artwork has graphics to the edge or not, make sure to add “bleed” on your file. If not, you are paying for extra charges to the printer to add the bleed or printer may just stretch the file 1-2% bigger to create a bleed all around it to save time. This is how printers getaway instead of going back to all the way to the customer to save time especially when the customer is not a designer or design firm.

Lush Trade Show Booth

Vinyl installation for the trade show at Vancouver Convention Centre.

I had to install in a small space while people are still trying to set up the booth. When you talk to them with respect and be nice, they will even help you to move their stuff and even gave me enough space to install. It’s a win-win for me and Lush.
Another happy installation!

Rennie Museum – Wall Graphic Installation

8′ x 8′ wall graphic installation

Biggest challenge of this installation wasn’t about installation but to persuade the sales person.

I ended up installing same graphics 5 times because the sales person sold rennie a WRONG vinyl for the wall and kept thinking he made a right choice. It wasn’t even sticking to the wall while I was installing. It was combination of ultra low-tac removable vinyl and freshly painted wall. However, it was his first wall graphic sales so it’s very understandable. We learned the right way from this installation and ended up selling more wall graphics later.
I always learn so much more from mistakes!

When I was installing, rennie told me that they will re-paint the wall after the event. so vinyl could be permenent and I didn’t have to go 5 times to install.

Think about the time and cost of it.
( parking + labour + vinyl + printing time + ink ) x 5 times = 🤯😱🤮

Things to consider when you install a wall graphic.😀

  • Type of media (permanent vs removable vinyl)
  • Is it fresh paint? then wait for at least 3 days for the paint to dry up
  • Is the paint matte or glossy?

This job was completed through Total Graphics Inc.
