Hole in the bottom I'm assuming lets our hot air but then hot air rises and the only other thing would be to poke something in it at a later stage.

I'm not quite sure what you would poke in there but plenty of gadgets that would fit.

Sorry for the delay in responding guys. Made time of year :)

The holes in the bottom are for ventilation. Thought they would aid in cross flow ventilation giving the fans on the back something to draw from.
I was thinking of using them to access wing nuts that I planned to use to secure the lock down bar down but have changed my mind. Going to use magnetic catches now.

The build is on hold know till after Christmas. May give me some time to come up with a design for the side art

Hi Guys

Had some time to work on my artwork before Christmas.
Here is my first attempt.
Any comments for improvement welcome :)

A couple of question for the guys who get vinyl printed.
What things should I watch out for or do when preparing the file for the printers?
What File format do you usually use?
Should I make all the sides a little bigger to allow of trimming?
Any thing else :)

Merry Christmas

Goochee

the guys i use either need a Adobe Illustrator or Pre-Press PDF, with all text converted to curves

Should I make all the sides a little bigger to allow of trimming?
yeah, usually something that big would need a 'bleed' of 10mm or so.

Any thing else :)
I would get a price for an overlaminate, you can get it in gloss or matt.
For large panels, I use a vinyl called '3M™ Controltac™ Graphic Film with Comply™' it is soooo much easier to apply than normal vinyl.

Merry Xmas to you as well buddy.

Yeh I agree with what Heath said, have a bleed but make sure you keep everything that is to be printed within the bleed. That is, if your design is 200 x 100, the bleed version would be 220 x 120 (assuming a 10mm all around bleed) but all the important stuff would be within the 200 x 100 'live image area' - adjusted to actual specs.

Most printers like a CMYK PDF or JPG however some can accommodate an RGB image if you can't supply CMYK. This is my bread and butter so feel free to talk to me and I'm happy to do any conversion for you if you can't.
