Bleed edge example

Comments

Here's a scan of a bleed edge from a magazine. It was folded over, so it didn't get cut. It shows how a bleed edge is created.

Page proof example

Comments

The page proof I got from an Technical Communication article. I had to proofread this copy against my original, make any corrections, and return it to the journal editor. Notice how it is layed out in final format; any substantial changes would get the editor upset.

Page proof example

Comments

Image of a page proof printed 4-up (from a St. Jude Children's Hospital publication). This is the proofs sent back from a publisher for their newsletter. Notice how each side of the paper has 4 pages of the final document on each side.

Examine the page numbers and layout of the pages (some look upside down) and then play around with a sheet of paper marked up the same way. Fold it properly and everything will be ready for reading. If you were designing this text, you would have to create it in 8 page increments.
