Double gutter image: it is the file creator’s responsibility to include double image allowance, if required. Neither Rolling Stone nor The Brag Media nor our printer will apply a double gutter image. As a recommendation only: no type should appear within 15mm either side of the gutter on a spread. If other important elements run through the gutter on a spread or middle of the spread should have duplication of 6mm contained within the trim areas.
