    I do stuff for close friends - business cards, pamphlets, flyers, menus etc. Like I said, I'm no professional, so I didn't charge them a dime. I'm just doing this for experience.

  • slug area

    hey

    I'm trying to teach my self indesign and I would like to know what the slug area is? And what's its purpose?

    This is probably such a basic question

    The non-printable area of the document -- outside of the page. Where you put additional notes for the printer or file prepper.

        Very useful for generating proofs with a printed sign off box among other things.
