Need a white border on the pdf
« on: September 21, 2015, 03:26:04 pm »
Hi all,

Made for our non profit a magazine in scribus.
Just got the news from the print company that there has to be
a 3 mm border top and bottom + right on uneven pages and left on even obes.

This because they print on a3 (4 pages on every a3.
After printing they cut the borders and it is again borderless

Is there an option to create a pdf with this borders, need the scribus
file to stay borderless.

Grtz

they don't know what they want .
 they called today to inform that white isn't good, they need the background to run an extra 3mm -  not shure if i like that they cut a piece of that photo... :o

That's what bleed does (but you will of course have to make sure your images extend into the bleed area).

Google "bleed printing" to find a lot of pages explaining how it works.
