HOW 10 AVOID WASTING PAPER:
how TO AVOID OTHER WASTAGES:

(1) Never cause undue WASTE IN TRIM. If the dummy is such that
the job "just doesn't" cut out of a Standard Size with minimum
(I") trim, it is better to RE-PLAN THE JOB accordingly.
Ask your printer to obtain for you (gratis) a copy of THE
SUB-DIVISIONS OF THE STANDARD PAPER SIZES,
a pamphlet published by ourselves and widely recommended.
(2) Study "word-count", in relation to legibility. Some faces "bump
out" the copy, others save space without looking cramped or small.

(2s. 6d.) shows at a glance the average number of characters

(3) Make every inch WORK, and MAKE THE MOST of every ream,
by using strikingly EFFECTIVE faces and layouts.

(1) Make sure your bill for CORRECTIONS is not unduly high
(a) Edit the copy consistently and thoroughly.
(b) Specify "Monotype" machine composition, so that you
may have the advantages of SINGLE-TYPE correction at
case. It saves time and cost.
(2) Select a printer who can set, in his own plant, without any make
shift, ANY job you need, at highest known output-speed.
Remember that although "anybody can QUOTE a low
price", only the most up-to-date methods can JUSTIFY
a low price. "MONOTYPE" machines are peculiarly
adapted to 20th century requirements, hence they assure
