Explanation:
Flat Size and Finished Size

“Finished size” is the size of your piece in its final form, after folding and binding. “Flat size” is the size of your piece as it comes off the press, before it is folded or bound into its final form.

Tip: Finished size is the most important of the two, and the one you are most likely to know. You may not know the size of the sheet your vendor will use to print your piece, so don’t worry if you can’t include flat size in your specs.

Flat size

The flat size is the dimensions of the finished product prior to binding. For brochures, this is the dimensions prior to folding. For a booklet, this is the size when laid open (i.e., "People" magazine is 17 x 11 flat).

Note: Sizes are always indicated first by width, and then by height.
Finished size

The finished size is the dimensions of the finished product after binding. For example, the finished size of an 8½ x 11 three-panel brochure would be 8½ x 3¾. The finished size of a "People" magazine is 8½ x 11.

Formato
• Per scegliere il formato di uno stampato occorre ponderare estetica, praticità e costo.
• Il formato chiuso è l'ingombro visivo bidimensionale di uno stampato. Per conoscere il formato chiuso basta quindi misurare le dimensioni dello stampato così come si presenta.
Per calcolare il formato aperto si moltiplica la base per il numero di svolgimenti (in un libro 2, in un depliant anche più)
Pieghevole: formato chiuso 10x21, formato aperto (10x3)x21=30x21
Libro ad albo: formato chiuso 29,7x21, formato aperto 59,4x21
