Specific Positioning of Content and/or Design Elements

Due to the 1/16th inch (0.0625 in / 2 mm) production variance, cover and interior files submitted with specific positioning of content and/or design elements may shift from the originally intended placement. These may appear correct in the digital file and/or eproof, but may shift during production. This includes, but is not limited to the list below:

 

  • Margins less than the recommended 0.5 in (13mm)
  • Outside borders that sit close to the trim/fold edges
  • Page numbers that sit outside the recommended 0.5 in (13mm) safety
  • Numbered or labeled tabs that sit outside the recommended 0.5 in (13mm) safety
  • Text on spines with a spine width smaller than 0.35 in (9mm)
  • Text on spines/covers that sit close to or extend past the safety edges
  • Images or design elements that cross the interior gutter
  • Images or design elements that sit close to the wrap area on dust jackets
    and/or case laminate covers
  • Cover designs with a different spine background color/image than the front and/or back cover
