  • Just venting

    I had to prep a print ad for work, and in the publications specs it stated that the ad needed to be 5.4167" wide by 8.5" high. That's right, they think that they need a file to be accurate to 4 decimal points. So, I am venting but I figured I'd post in here and ask if there is absolutely any need or benefit to being that precise. It just seemed extremely unnecessary.

    I have seen specs like that before. It's a weird number though, it probably translates into picas or something.

      Because 5.417 would of course be 3/10,000 of an inch too big, it would never fit! LOL

        That's what I thought Kool. It just seemed extremely idiotic.

          Yeah, it's somebody's conversion from another unit, and they just copied the raw calculation without considering how stupid.
          I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.
