This page won’t be about ALL pageantry terminology in the pageantry arts (what an exhausting task THAT would be…). Instead we wanted to provide a helpful glossary of terms that are used in the pageantry arts that relate to the graphics we produce here at Winter Guard Tarps.
Scale –Art is often built to scale. Most design programs won’t allow you to design an image that is 50’ x 70’, the file size would simply be too enormous to work with. As such most be work in a percentage of the actual size. At WGT for large images like a floor tarp we suggest people to work at 1/12scale, which is the very simple remember scale of “one inch equals one square foot” . . . so your 50’x70’ tarp would be designed at 50”x70”.
