I have an 11x17 poster that
- Will have 3/16 white border (because the printer can't print to the edge)
- needs 3/16 padding from edge for all objects
I don't want to print it on 12x18 and cut it so right now I have it set up as a 10.625x16.625 with all-around 0.1875 bleed and I also want to have a line showing 0.1875 padding (or at least in the web world we call it padding).
- What's the name designer's use for the space between the printed edge and the objects inside (css calls it padding)?
- Should I just add that with four guides? Or is there something part of document setup (like bleed and slug) that will give me a preset border / guide?
I don't yet think like a designer so I'm probably thinking about the problem in a weird way, but I've got all of about 10 hours of illustrator use under my belt so be kind.
