Successful print bids
Staying within a budget or creating pieces that are readily doable by a number of print sources is easier when you create designs that fit within standard paper sheet and printing press sizes. In the digital age, it is easy and quick to photograph your mock up and include images when you submit bid requests. Put dimensions with the image and note pertinent requirements. Does that wrap need to seal, etc.
By including images it makes your finished project "real" to everyone who has to deal with it down the line. It hastens and simplifies communication and could easily get your bids processed more quickly. You can ask the printer to modify your specs if there is a much more efficient trim.
