Creep is the shifting position of the page in a saddle-stitched bind. Creep moves the inside pages away from the spine.
The slight but cumulative offset of the edges of inserted folder sheets. Once a publication is assembled, the book is then trimmed so that the edges are flush with each other.
The slight but cumulative extension of the edges of each inserted spread or signature beyond the edges of the one that encloses it in a saddle stitch bind.
In saddle-stitched binding, a creep refers to the inside sheets that stick out further than the pages that encloses it.
Compensation for the thickness of folded signatures at the spine in a binding job.
A term used in a hemming operation for the amount the part reduces in size along the flange radius when forming from a 900 flange to a full fold or hem.
The process of compensating for the shifting position of the page in a saddle-stitched bind. Creep moves the inside pages or signatures towards the spine.
The slight but cumulative extension of the edges of each inserted spread or signature beyond the edges of the signature that encloses it. This results in a progressively smaller trim size on the inside pages. Alternative terms: binders creep, thrust, pushout.
When the rubber blanket on a cylinder moves forward due to contact with the plate or paper. Result of added thickness of folded sheets being behind one another in a folded signature. Outer edges of sheets creep away from back most fold as more folded sheets are inserted inside the middle.
A bindery term refrring to the middle pages of a folded signature extending slightly beyond outside pages due to the offset created by the combined thickness of multiple folded signatures. Also called feathering, outpush, push out, thrust and shingling.
The process during imposition that keeps the middle pages of a saddle-stitched book in the same position relative to the outer pages.
Phenomenon of middle pages of a folded signature extending slightly beyond outside pages.
The movement of the image-area towards the fore-edge in a saddle stitched book/magazine, to a maximum at the centre spread. Can be compensated for by careful measurement of paper width (thickness) with a caliper and moving the image areas progressively throughout the document in the appropriate direction by fractions of a mm.
