the signature exactly on the minimum printable gripper area. ‘Trim Marks to Bottom Paper Edge’ places the trimming

Signature & Imposition Setup

Binding / Folding
Binding Method: Select the binding method of the Job.

not required binding margin. So keep the margin as ‘0’.
Select ‘Perfect binding’. if you planned to bind your book in small folded groups combined and glued on the spine.
Perfect binding may require some binding margin on the spine area.
Section Sewing: Use this option if you want to fold the printed sheets as small sections and each section is then
sewn into the following section along the spine. Then binding together with a cover to make a book. This option
is also useful for some situations when more than one form required for a section sewing or perfect binding group.
Pages In A Section: Enter the number of pages to make a single section.
Creep / Shingling: Saddle stitched books with more pages require creeping to get the pages are aligned on the
outer edge after cutting. Imposition Studio will calculate the value automatically when you enter the correct paper
GSM in the ‘Creep Setup’ window. Check Creep Setup section for more details.
Binding/Routing Margin: Enter the Binding/Routing Margin here. Use 0 for Saddle Stitch / Stapling jobs. For
Perfect binding jobs, use the routing margin required for your binding machine. Included Perfect Binding templates
use 6mm as routing margin. Check with your technical person for the exact values.
Folding Gap Settings: The values in the vertical and Horizontal folding gaps are the default values from the
preferences. Select ‘Apply New Values to all Folding Gaps ‘ to apply new values to all vertical & horizontal values in
the layout. ‘Auto Distribute to Print Run Paper Size’ is an option to keep all the folded pages in same size by
distributing the folding gaps evenly on the specified print run paper size. This will ensure easy folding & binding on
automatic machines.
Use main workspace window to edit individual folding or routing gaps. Check the Edit Gaps section for more
information.

Many of the settings in the ‘Signature Settings Window’ will affect the current layout structure.
Many of the modifications require resetting the layout to apply the changes. All page based
informations like page numbers, rotation etc. may be lost after reset.
Creep Setup

Creep Setup
On saddle-stitched books, inner pages are narrower than outer pages after
