    Hi everybody,
    I have to prepare some graphics for printing, and I was given the following specs (by the printing company):

    Final Trim Size: 9 1/8 x 11 1/4
    Bleed: 9 5/8 x 11 3/4
    Non-Bleed: 8 5/8 x 10 3/4
    Live area for type: 8 5/8 x 10 3/4

    Since this is my first such task, I felt embarassed to ask for further explanations :eek: :eek: :eek: . Can somebody please explain to me the exact meaning of the 4 specs....
    Thanks a million

    I’ve never dealt with those. It appears it is for commercial printing of multiple images. It seems they want the image size to be the 9 5/8 X 11 3/4 and it will be trimmed to the final trim size. For some reason they seem to want all type in the live area. Some of the terms and the reason: http://www.quickprintline.com/bleed.html and http://www.quantumcopy.com/html/fullbleed_advanced.htm

    Sometimes commercial printers want CYMK rather than RGB – I would guess that will be in the specs if they do.
