Spent a ton of time designing a highway billboard with Affinity Designer.

Ready to send to the printer and i cannot export to PSD or PDF.

I get the error, "An error has occurred while exporting to..."

Supposed to go to the printer today, so not a great first impression.
There are 3 files the main billboard design is 1.6GB, (are you serious?)

i have attached a small portion of the sign, as that is a smaller file size. And very basic design.

Please advise how to export to psd, and reduce the enormity of the design file?

For exporting to PDF you could try clicking on the More... button, then scrolling down to the Embed Fonts option and choosing "Text As Curves".

The maximum pixel dimensions of a PSD file is 30,000 x 30,000 and your document just exceeds this limit please follow the advice of @walt.farrell to export as a PDF file, you could aso check with your printer to see if they except a EPS file
