Re: Make-ready waste

Printing Industries of America (PIA) produces annual "ratio studies," which
indicate industry standards for all sorts of parameters, including the amount
of waste generated by make-ready. This will differ according to press types,
sizes, etc.

There may be a fee for some of this information, or it may be a members-only
service, but it's something I found very useful in the past.
