Make the document to the final trim size of your magazine plus 1/4" (actual trim plus 1/8" bleed on all sides) and use color mode of CMYK.


Before building your document, you should place guides at least 1/4" inside of trim. Keep all live elements within the inside guides unless the item is supposed to bleed.

Please see our website for Tech Note 01 for dealing with creep.
