  • Yo Print Gurus! What's the technical term?

    For the phenomenon that occurs when trimming saddle stiched booklets - that the interior pages will have more trimmed off the outer edges due to the thickness of the paper - the more pages, the greater the excess trim at the interior pages.

    We can't recall it right off hand - I told my colleague to make something up, like Multi-page die drift, since the guy he's trying to describe this to wont know what we're talking about anyway - but he's just gotta be right, so be a friend and give us the skinny!

                Pretty sure that's the slug area. Usually at the bottom of the page....... yes it's not very interesting is it?

                  Thanks, now we can sound like perfessionals when trying to explain this to the Chinese!

                  I thought Slug was this dude that tried to get you to sell him an Everlasting Gobstopper.

                                I suppose I'm an oldie. Sigh.

                                And i remember you and Ulysses. I don't post very often, but I do check in from time to time. Congrats on 10 years and the 3 kiddos.

                                Different tax laws in the US I suppose. You are right that it is imperfect because you do still need to charge sales tax.
