Preparing your panels

Most daily comic strips are drawn 12 3/4” wide by 4” tall. Single panel cartoons are drawn 7” square.

You can draw larger or smaller than that, as long as your cartoons are in proportion to that size. When drawn in these measurements reducing by 50% will produce the proper measurement for printing..

The larger size of the original is done to make drawing easier for the artist as well as improve quality after reduction as it will be smaller, and cleaner.
