The 100% Solution
Those of you who get the print version may notice something a little bit off in the December issue of The Mattesonian. It’s undersized! We noticed it during the folding operation when the lower fold went through a fair amount of the tops of the reunion photos on the cover. We’re usually pretty careful about that. The package we use, Serif’s PagePlus, allows for non-printing guide lines and we use them to keep track of where the folds will fall. Here’s how it looks on the screen:
Upon closer examination, the full page width, left side of column one to right side of column three, which should be 7.5″ is only 6-15/16″ or 92.5% of what it should be. If those of you who get The eMattesonian were to print a page at 100%, you will find that the width is exactly 7.5″. It never occurred to us that we needed to tell the printer to print at 100%, but we’ll be sure to require that for all future issues. I guess we’re never done learning about this editing business!
