Standard Comic Book Page Templates for Clip Studio Paint

Neil Collyer
2 ratings

This is a package of five high resolution (600dpi) comic book page templates for digital comic book artists.

Included in this package of comic book page templates:

Single Page Templates

  • 1 Cover Page
  • 1 Interior Page
  • 1 Thumbnail Page
Double Page Templates

  • 1 Cover Page
  • 1 Interior Page
  • 1 Thumbnail Page

 Trim, Type safe, and Bleed markings

  • Trim is the final size of your comic page after it has been printed and cut to size by the printer.
  • Type Safe is the area that you can safely place artwork and text that will not get cut off in the timing process. Your logo, panels, and artwork will go here.
  • Bleed is the area that is not expected to be printed but may be printed if the printer’s trimming of the comic is not precise. This template allows for an industry standard of 0.25″ of bleed. Only non essential artwork details should be placed in the bleed area.


Most printing services require 300DPI for printing. Making your artwork at 600DPI ensures that it can be printed for comic books, posters, and almost anything else you may need to print on in the future.

Changeable background colour

The background is on a separate color block layer, and can be changed to any color you require with a couple of clicks.

Changeable color and opacity for template information and markings

Template Markings Color

  • The template elements (Creator info, page info, crop marks etc.) are on one separate layer (with a transparent background) that can be changed in a couple of clicks.
Template Markings Opacity

  • If you require the template elements to be less or more prominent, change the opacity of the template element layers: they can be found within the “Page Template” layer.

Interior Story Pages – Single Page, Double Page

The single and double page – Interior pages include markings for dividing the page into halves and thirds, as well as for creating panel border layouts

  • Halve markers The halve markers can be found on the outer-most border of the template (a solid line indicating the Bleed border). The markers are small dashes at the top, bottom, and both sides of the bleed border.
  • Thirds markers The thirds markers can be found on dotted line directly next to the Bleed border line (This line indicates Trim). They are small markings at the top, bottom, and both sides of the solid border.
  • Panel Border Markings The panel markers are based on a 36 panel grid. While you will very likely never need 36 panels, it allows for a high degree of flexibility when creating panel layouts for your page.

Thumbnails Page

This template includes single page and double page thumbnail layouts.

  • There are two thumbnail layout layers that can be turned on and off, depending on your needs. These layers can be found in the layer folder “Thumbnail Borders”
  • “Single”: This layer contains 9 single page thumbnail borders.
  • “Double”: This layer contains 3 double page thumbnail borders and 3 single page thumbnail borders.
