  • 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.

        Actually the slug area does get printed. It gets added to your document if specified. It is usually cut off in final trim.

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

          There's also some neat (but very expensive) slug plugs for ID that do all kinds of wonderful docket chasing things. Mac only as far as I can see.

            Hi Pilotguy and welcome to GDF.

            I can't see the mark too well with the added watermark over it. You say it contains a plane and a train (which I can't see). Where did you get those elements?...

            To add to what B has said, although you are approaching the endeavor as a ''free time'' hobby-like weekend project, it is indeed a business and will need to be treated as such. Without a business plan,...

            The fact that it is so easy to jump into this market is the very thing that makes it so hard to succeed at it. In other words, the market is utterly, totally, completely saturated with people, like yourself,...

            I agree with Navian's comments, so I won't repeat them. What I will say, however, is that I like it. It's simple, to the point, distinctive, easily read and instantly conveys an outdoorsy, slightly nostalgic,...

            MaxF orce -- the kerning's not good.

            You've stretched out the typography on trailers. Again, not good.

            The M morphing into a ball hitch is just a little weird. It also creates...
