  • 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.

            I've got a client that designed his own logo and simply wanted me to put it together. He only drew the outline and told me what colors to use. But I'm not sure if I can send this to him. Should I tell...

            Thanks for your feedback!
            I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

            Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

            I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
            This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
