  • 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.

            This is why I refuse to accept work cleaning up other people's logos.
