  • 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 created my first signature in 12 years of not touching Photoshop or any graphics program in general. What do you guys think?
