  • 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!

            slug is when the agency places job and designer information off the edge of the page.

                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.

                                Can your contact not ask? or at the very least put you in contact with their vendor? Seems a little silly to risk something not going as planned, costing more etc, when a few words could circumvent issues....

                                I still think it's asking for trouble to just assume something is going print okay. If the person you are dealing with doesn't know the answer, find out. Get the information for whoever is producing the...

                                Yea but when do you decide if you starve or just do it anyway until you are in a better position. Because you can lose customers if they don't get what they want. Amurica!

                                BTW, be sure to put the two production files in a folder and .zip it. That will help prevent corruption in the multiple hand-offs it sounds like you are doing.
