Double Imaging DPS Artwork
Due to the print and binding process, any images that are across the gutter (middle) of a double page spread are "pulled" into the spine.
This may result in a loss of image and cause images to misalign. To compensate for this,
Double Imaging is required on all DPS artwork if an image/text is running through the gutter of a spread.
The clearance space should be a minimum of 6mm (3mm of double image incorporated into the overall image of each page) - a 3mm band of the image on the inside margin of the left page (closest to the gutter) is repeated on the inside section of the right page, and vice versa.
The spread will carry a 6mm double image in the spine, as shown in the diagram.
