Consult with the person booking the campaign to get the size (or sizes) of design creative required for producing your billboard on flex-face vinyl. The design template or templates for production-ready creative differ depending on the size of the billboard location or locations in your campaign. Take a peek at our billboard advertising tips.
Select and download the correct template/s for the size of the billboard/s in your campaign. As a rule of thumb, billboards in Victoria and Prince George are 10'x20' in size. In Cowichan and Nanaimo, billboards are 10'x24'. There are a number of exceptions to this rule of thumb.

It is also helpful to include a small, 72 dpi RGB .jpg proof (eg. 2500 x 1250 pixels for a 10'x20' creative) of your design for our reference. A low-res .pdf is also acceptable for the reference proof.
