  • 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.

            The site looks very impersonal and quasi-professional to me. I don't know how to explain it very well, but I'll try.

            It's like if you get an email for some "as sold on TV product",...

            1) Is the design too hokey pokey in home/portfolio, does it engage?
            2) Is the font off-ish, or does it look a bit basic?
