Bleed Units

Type or illustrative matter not intended to bleed must be kept 10mm from the trim edge.

Facing Pages (Spread)

Type or illustrative matter on facing pages should not be closer than 2mm to the spine on each page which provides 4mm total separation. Any image exceeding this area could possibly be lost in the center, producing an unsatisfactory result.

Digital Ad Specifications

Digital resources on file formatting & creation techniques, on preflight settings and color management can be found at our digital advertising website on http://direct2.time.com
