| Keep all "live" copy 1/2" away
from the trim point on the binding edge. If there is not a printing/folding
variation, there is little adjustment available.
Allow enough "air" around all copy for error and variances,
especially folios. Folios should be kept 3/8" up and in signatures
and flat sheets.
If you have bleeds with reverse copy, extreme care should be taken
as they normally do not align in final trimming. Live copy in reverse
should be kept 1/4" away from the folded trim marks.
You should notify the Vendor's estimating department if there
is horizontal "alignment bleeds". This type of cutting
requisites more individualized sheet trimming instead of the normal
page gang cut. If "alignment/bleed" trimming is required
and is not specified in the estimate, a charge may occur.
