So I have a friend who wants a vector image done for a wall print in their karate studio. But they want the image 8 ft high and 5ft long. Do you actually make a file that big then draw the design then print it? Or is their some way to make it so its smaller, but for printing, scale it up proportionally?
I usually just work in some reasonable scale like 10% of actual. I do the same for large raster work but, obviously, increase the dpi accordingly.
