Help needed- tiling very large print

Basically, a client of our asked us to cover an existing marketing sign, of 16ft x 12ft.

We will be using six 8ft x4ft alu panels, and basically I need advice on how to split the artwork into appropriate 8'x4' sections to go on each panel. It's 16 wide by 12 high, by the way.

If there's any of you clever guys out there who could give me some pointers how to do it in Corel please? Also, should I do a 'bleed' of some kind? Another local sign firm will be applying these graphics to the sheets using their Rolls Roller, fortunately!

Many thanks in advance, if anyone could help...

Not sure about Corel (soz I'm an Adobe user), but we always tile our large prints in the RIP - Both Rasterlink & Onyx11 have the in RIP ability to tile,

Hope this helps!

Agree with Colin.

We use Rasterlink to tile jobs

You can do it in Corel but at the moment it is a bit of a faff and requires the crop tool and duplicates of your graphic. If you can ring me I'll talk you through it as explaining it here will take ages.

Personally I would do it in the rip software but it can be done in Corel.

You need to draw your panels, group them, then centre them over the top of a grouped selection or image, then use the powerclip tool and select your panels.

With the powerclip selected ungroup and each panel will be moveable and able to save as an individual piece.

A handy way of doing odd shaped tiles which rips can't always do.

If my instructions aren't very good let me know and I'll search for a tutorial

The easiest way to do it in corel is set guidelines to to where you want to crop including any overlaps ie 20mm then draw a box over the top and intersect the picture within the box, this will crop the image without using the crop tool and creating loads of duplicates. happy to help you through it if needed.
