Duplex Image Imposition on 11 x 17” Paper

Naming the Paper Stock

Other commonly used names for 11 x 17” are Tabloid and Ledger.

Tabloid is 11” wide and 17” tall. (Think, “T is for Tabloid and T is for Tall.”)

Ledger is 17” wide and 11" tall. (Think, ”L is for Ledger and L is for Landscape.”)

Portrait vs. Landscape

Portrait orientation places the image head-up on the page. Landscape orientation will put a 270Ί clockwise rotation on the image.

Combined Effect of Paper Stock, Orientation and Duplex Printing (and we haven’t even mentioned Image Rotation, yet!!)
