Pages organization

We help you create and print your newspaper.
You'll find tips to make your pages, spreads and sheets before printing your newspaper.

PAGE

A page is one side of a folded sheet of paper. Here's an example:

format journal

Newspaper finishing lines require a minimum thickness of 8 pages. To ensure a precise fold, we deliver 4 pages newspapers 2 by 2.

SPREADS

A spread is two facing pages - one left-hand page and one right-hand page. The central spread is on the same sheet of paper while other spreads are on separate sheets.
Here's an example of spread:

format journal

Spreads can be used to make posters. It's called a double-page spread. Artworks can be printed right across the page with no central margin or gutter.
Double-page spread on a single sheet of paper :

format journal

It's possible to print multiple double-page spreads in the same newspaper.
For example, you can print a 12 pages newspaper and pull apart into 6 spreads / 3 sheets. Pages 2 and 11 are printed on the same sheet, as for pages 3 and 10, 4 and 9, etc.
To make sure the posters are clean, ensure that the inner edges of each page have no central margin or gutter and that they come together, while maintaining a margin on the outer edges of the spread.
