Quick Signature Clarification
Authored by: BulbVivid on Feb 22, '05 11:38:05AM
a letter or figure placed usually at the bottom of the first page on each sheet of printed pages (as of a book) as a direction to the binder in arranging and gathering the sheets b : the sheet itself which when folded becomes one unit of the book
A signature is a single sheet of paper with x number of document pages on it, depending on document-page size/sheet size. 6 x 9 books typically have 32 pages on a 25 x 38 sheet (32-page signature). 8 1/2 x 11 books typically have 16 pages on a 23 x 35 sheet (16-page signature). I'm sure someone with a little more press experience could expand (or correct, if necessary) this information.
