Front design

PDF file

To achieve that picture-perfect, professional finish for your life-size Barbie Box, we recommend printing the front panel on a high-quality PVC sheet, 3mm in thickness. This step adds a touch of elegance and precision to your creation, making it a true showstopper at your event.

1. Contacting Your Local Printer
Reach out to a trusted local printer that specializes in large format and PVC printing. Provide them with the finalized design file and specifications. Clearly communicate that the artwork needs to be printed on a 3mm thick PVC sheet. The size of the file is 36 inch x 78 inch.

2 Printing and Quality Check Your printer will work their magic and bring your design to life on the PVC sheet. Once the printing is complete, perform a thorough quality check to ensure the colors, details, and overall print quality meet your expectations.

3 Affixing the Printed Front Panel Once you have the printed PVC front panel in hand, carefully affix it to the front section of your life-size Barbie Box. Ensure that it aligns perfectly with the structure you’ve built. Secure it firmly in place using velcro bands, like we did on the video.
