Printer’s marks

Marks placed on the printed sheet outside the book page that register (orient) the page and indicate where it is to be trimmed as well as any extra trim for bleeds.

Also placed here for the printers are grayscale gradient bars, colour bars and file/page information.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
