Poster splicing instructions

You can get different types of posters by trying various ways of splicing them:

  1. Standard poster. Overlapped pages are glued together.
  2. Wall poster. Pages are glued to the wall.
  3. Tape poster. Pages are fixed by an adhesive tape.

Each poster page may have the following margin types:

  1. Trim margins. Marked by dashed line.
  2. Glue margins. Marked by solid line with hatch.
  3. Overlap margins. Marked by hatched image areas.

To get a ready-to-use poster, do the following:

  1. Crop the trim margins
  2. Splice the pages together
  3. Trim the poster edges
