I work for a charity a few mornings a week and am designing a few flag banners for them (3m in height). I've found a supplier and received my PDF artwork template from them. I use Gimp as far as graphic design software goes - can anyone offer advice for setting up and creating artwork for this design? Should I download a layout based software to assist?
It's going to be very simple - white, just the logo at the top and website URL down the bottom, so not a complex design.
I've worked in teams with designers before but never done the whole print process on my own from top to bottom. I'm very wary that resolution needs to be high, some elements need to vectorised and suit the specs from the printer. The charity doesn't have a lot of money so I don't want to make a costly mistake!
Thanks in advance! Cheers from Australia
