Paste-up dummies are dummies made from proofs pulled after the type is set.
Proofs intended for dummy purposes are run on colored paper. Obtain extra
proofs to catch typographical errors. At the top of each proof is a galley
number. Mark this number several times throughout each column of typeset
print with a heavy lead or grease pencil. By doing this, the printer can tell
instantly which gallery the type is in when they make up the pages. Trim the
proofs and paste them into place on the layout sheets along with the proofs of
illustrations. Use a repositionable adhesive, such as transparent tape or wax.
Unfortunately, type does not always measure out the way you would like it to
and you will have too much or too little space. Keep several pages laid out
in advance to check the fit of the material before you paste them into place.
