  • Spanish publication specs

    Hopefully this is the right spot to post this. We're going to be sizing an ad for a Spanish (in Spain) publication, and their specs are in millimeters. No problem there. But there's a term they use, which is "de sang", which we're guessing is bleed, but there's a little bit of a translation problem, not to mention the time zone problem in terms of calling someone directly.

    Anyone know? "De Sang" equals "Bleed"?

    De Sang = Of Blood, literal translation. So yes, De Sang = Bleed

        You are da man! Thanks so much Cmont, that's what we were thinking, so your translation makes perfect sense. Oddly, our receptionist, who's Mexican and speaks fluently, couldn't make it out, but she doesn't understanding printing, so may not have made the connection.

        I love GDF!

            Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
            I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
