Hello,

Can anybody shed light on this bland soft rejection explanation:

“Strangulation marks”

That’s all it said! 2 words?

I searched the forums and nobody else has posted about this. Also I have been in the creative industry here in the UK for over ten years and never came across this term. I can only guess it falls under the same family as bleed, creep, trim and slug etc.

Help!

“Unfortunately your submission General InDesign Poster Pack isn’t quite ready for GraphicRiver.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

Definitely! I am actually quite annoyed that I had to wait two weeks for the piece of cryptic advice.

Wait 2 weeks for two words…

I’m pretty sure it’s a mistake. I’ll get one of the reviewers to take a look at the file for you :)

Just for reference for all who replied to my post.

The reason for the soft rejection was that my artwork didn’t extend to the 3mm bleed, instead it was half a mil short. I am guessing this was down to ‘lost in translation’ ;)

p.s. Thanks again Loungekat
