Frequently asked questions.

What should I include in my tarpaulin design?
Generally less is more, that way you can make the text on your tarpaulin as big as possible for your audience to see from any distance. Promotional tarpaulins should feature a clear message and a call to action. Decorative tarpaulins can be image-only, or have a one big message for the occasion. Regardless of your intent, enjoy using up all the space on your canvas to drive your message home.
What kind of images work best for a tarpaulin?
Since tarpaulins are a very large canvas, use the highest resolution images possible. If you’re adding text to your design, choose an image that isn’t too busy so it doesn’t distract from the messaging. Or, skip images altogether and use shapes and colors to create a graphic background instead.
What is the standard size of tarpaulin?
Tarpaulin banners come in many different customizable sizes. Some of the most commonly used sizes include 6’ x 3’ (72” x 36”), 4’ x 2’ (48” x 24”) and 8’ x 4’ (96”x 48”). If none of these sizes work for your needs, talk with your printer about making a custom size, and use the Resize tool in Adobe Express to set your custom parameters.
