Standard Comic Book Template by bozoartist Standard Comic Book Template by bozoartist
This is a simple template I made for Standard Comic Book Page size. It has 6.625 x 10.25 Trim size, with marks for bleeds, live area & Slug on separate layers.

For a helpful article on print marks and page size Check out the following blog in the Manga-Apps group:

Ha ha, I've got to scratch my head and wonder, "Why didn't I think of doing this instead of looking up the correct dimensions every time I go to work on something comic related????" Thank you so much! You've saved me from myself, LOL!

Can you please give me the measurements for the trim line, bleed line and live area so I can mark it on my bristol board. Where should my panel boxes start, in the live area, inner most line? Thanks alot!!!
Reply
:iconbozoartist:
bozoartist Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010  Professional General Artist
The trim is 6.625 (or 6-5/8 inches) X 10.25 inches.
Bleed is approximately 7.5 x 11 inches
Live area is 6 x 9 inches.

You can put your panels any where within the Trim line- but If you want to be safe- just keep them in the live area. I generally layout my panels to the trim, and never run into any problems.

Good luck!

Thanks for the template! ...So how would I go about using this?
Do I not touch the farthest gutter and only draw in the live draw area?

And how does the page trim work? I have no idea! Help a buddy out!

(Thank you for your help!)

:iconbozoartist:
bozoartist Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010  Professional General Artist
No Problem-
The Page Trim is the dotted line with crop marks on the corners. This is where the paper is cut. In other words, this is the actual size of the comic book. If you want anything to bleed, or extend all the way to the edge of the page, make sure it goes as least as far as the outside line, (The Bleed).
Anything important that you definitely want to fit on the page, (i.e. text, dialog, etc.) make sure it's inside the inner most line. This is the "Live or Safe zone".

Found some Canson Fanboy paper for comic artists. The dimensions are about 10 x 15. Does this correlates with that?
