Specifications

Trim size: 8" x 10 7/8"
Bleed size: 8 1/4" x 11 1/8" Leave at least 1/8” beyond the trim size of the head, face, and foot of the document. Objects not intended to bleed must be kept within the “live area.” Ads that do not meet specified dimensions may be modified to fit.
Live area: 7 1/4" x 10"  
Line screen: 150
Method of printing: Web offset, four-color process
Method of binding: Perfect Bound
Printed and furnished inserts/outserts: Pieces supplied must include 3% spoilage. Printer will need to review based on postal regulations. If the piece is four pages and the full size of the publication, allow 1/8” head, foot, face trim and a 3/8” binding flap at the face on pages 3 and 4. The binding flap will be on the high folio (pages 3 and 4) due to each publication being jogged to the head. Less than full size will need to be reviewed based on request to tip or to bind in. All outserts in a polybag will need to be reviewed for placement in the bag based on comailing operations and postal regulations for periodicals-class mail.
(Consult the Advertising Director, G. Scott Dinkel, for printer reviews.)
