  • PDF must contain crop marks, positioned outside the bleed area.

  • Digital Colour proof with colour profile coated FOGRA 39 [ISO 12647-2:2004] must be

Home Journal accepts digital ads

  • On disk

The Publisher reserves the right to trim 10mm off each edge to the trimmed page dimension.

Type matter and illustrated material not intended to bleed must be kept to this tolerance.

Perfect bound gutter spread safety allowance

A common design error is to crowd the finished edge with text and/or graphics. 

This makes the finished product harder to read and less visually pleasing overall.

If you open a book, you will notice an obvious margin that separates the text from the edge of the page.

This is commonly referred to as ‘gutter’. Open a magazine and you will find the same thing- there will be elements that do bleed to edge of the page, but everything else is kept a certain distance away from the edge.
The following is a suggestion on the amount of ‘gutter’ use in your design, with a minimum requirement for IFC spread which is often at least a 6mm away from the paper edge to improve legibility and to minimize accidental cropping.
