Your tabbed page ad will be spiral bound on the right side and the the 1/4″ tab will be on the left side. The spiral binding uses about 1/4″ of page width. To ensure that your printed ad will be properly centred on the page and will have enough bleed to cover the tab and the area under the spiral binding, it is necessary for you to build your ad to the exact dimensions specified.
Please refer to the illustrations below to guide you through building your ad to the necessary specifications.
Artwork Size: 6-3/8 x 9-1/8
This size ensures that there is enough bleed, including the tab and what goes under binding.
Live Area: 5-1/8 x 8-3/8
All the important elements of the ad, including all type, must be within this area.
Page Area: 5-5/8 x 8-7/8
This is the size of the visible page, not counting the tab and the area which will be partly hidden under the spiral binding. Everything outside of this area will either be cut off, the tab, or partly hidden under the binding.
Bleed: 3/8″ on sides, 1/8″ on top & bottom
The bleed areas on the top and bottom will be trimmed off, the bleed on the left will be for the tab and on the right will be partly hidden under the spiral binding.
This 1/4″ space between the live area and the edge of the page ensures that nothing gets too close to the edge, or even cut off, due to variations in trimming throughout the press run.
Note how 1/4″ of the bleed on the right side is partly visible under the spiral binding while bleed on the left makes up the tab. Note also how live area is properly centred on the page and all the important elements of the ad have adequate breathing room due to the 1/4″ safety around the live area.
