Custom Sizes - Start by Understanding Fold Over
When we make signs and banners... The hem is folded over and sewn.
... so we need more material
This fold over bleed is called Material Over Size (MOS).
The MOS dimension must be added to your finished order size to suit the manufacturing options.
Material Over Size IMPORTANT Without the correctly matched Material Over Size you will not be able to pass our upload checks.
