• #ComicBookHour returns this Sunday on Twitter at 6pm UK (10am PT) for a PROMOTING COMICS Q&A.

Differences noted between comic dimensions

Hi @JamieMe, I was wondering if you recommend us use your version or the clip-friendly version.
The clip-friendly version seems to have a smaller safe area by up to 8.425 millimeters.


I've taken the dimensions from the "Want to Join in OCTRTA?" forum shown below to make a Photoshop file in .PSD format found here. Everyone here can feel free to get it.
I believe my error is +/- 1 Pixel.
Also, when I placed the template from that forum into Photoshop and compared the difference with the one I created, the template was off by a little as well.
(The one from the forum is on the left & mine is on the right)
The boxes are 6mm squares which are the Bleed and Trim widths.

I'd use my suggestion to be on the safe side. The one I've gone with is the one I literally take to the printers!

We use Standard US Size. Here is the link:

Hope that helps.
