Yo, I bought a pad of 12 X 18 sheets. it's pretty much a standard drawing page w/ that extra inch. Any advice on what measurments it should be? :har:

glad you mentioned that. Are we sure thats the modern dimentions for image area? It seems that apart from the full bleed which is en vogue, that the actual modern image area is larger.

Or i could be on dope.

That's the image sizes for the pre-ruled pages and it's what I was always taught. It's also proportionate to the shrunk down comic.

Me, I go outside the inside image area all the time. Since I usually scan in my own pages for prep, I can manipulate the image so it fits. I just hate empty space on pages.

Just to jump on your thread here, but, does anyone know the sizes in relation to an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper.

Also does anyone know of any links to PDF's guides?

I think that this would be helpful to everyone and I wouldn't mind seeing one too.

Cheers

Standard comic size is 6.875" x 10.5" for full bleed
To figure out the correct proportion for other page sizes , you can
1) multiply the height by .65 to find the width or
2) multiply the width by 1.52 to find the height

so with 8.5x11 the correct proportion would be 7.15" x 11" whihc is essentially print size.

Trying to recall if there was ever a template for pre-ruling 11 x 17 boards with a colour inkject printer that can handle that size of board. Anyone?
