To size your canvas specifically to various International or US paper types, you can do this two ways in SampleBoard:

  • Start your moodboard with a pre-sized template created for print

  • Start your design with a custom canvas, then enter the dimensions you want from the handy chart below using the canvas settings tab within the Creator

International paper

  • International A4: 2500 x 3500 px

  • International: A3: 3500 x 5000 px

US paper sizes

  • US Letter 8.5 x 11.0 in: 2550 x 3300 px

  • US Ledger / Tabloid 11.0 x 17.0 in: 3300 x 5100 px

Canvas settings panel

SampleBoard’s canvas settings can be found in the Right-Side Palette and enables you to change the size (dimensions) of your canvas by allowing you to adjust the width and/or height to suit your moodboard.

You can adjust the canvas size at any time during your creation. So for instance, if you started with a landscape orientation, but then decide portrait or square would be a better choice, you can easily change the canvas width and height by changing the pixels.

How to instantly resize a canvas

  • Click the canvas settings icon on the right-hand side toolbar

  • Select 'fixed' layout

  • Enter the width and height in pixels

  • Your canvas will instantly change size
