  • 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.

                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!
