Did you Know?



While many people are afraid of heights and spiders, a small group suffers from a fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of their mouths. This fear is called arachibutyrophobia. The word is derived from the Greek words “arachi” for ground nut, “butyr” for butter, and “phobia” for fear. While the statistical odds of an adult choking on peanut butter are extraordinarily low, a person with this phobia can easily trigger anxiety symptoms, including difficulty swallowing and increased chances of choking.

Printing Quiz

When your printer mentions an important bleed, what they really mean is:

  • To lose blood from the body as a result of injury or illness
  • To drain (someone) of money or resources
  • The extra image or background color that extends beyond the trim area of your printing piece.

A bleed is printing that goes beyond the edge of the paper.
