Final Major Project: Printing Layout Plans
Prior to sending an image off to Printspace for printing, I had to decide on the scale of the print and the layout of the print. In my gallery installation plan, I have placed 6 grids of 6 images along the longest wall. These images were sized at A0 (although in reality they will need to be trimmed in depth to suit images) as this feels correct in the space (see figure 1).

On each end wall, there will be 1 or 2 large statement prints (again sized at A0 in the plans). See figures 2 and 3.

My plans for the test grid print layout from Printspace are shown below:-

Figure 5: Redrawn Plan
Figure 6: Plan Drawn on 2D Design (CAD software)
I used these plans to produce the layout for a test grid print (figure 7). The print was planned for A0 size, C-Type Matt (which has a satin appearance). I will evaluate the print when it arrives.
