There are two types of spreads with respect to alignment:

Straight Edge

A straight-edge spread has all the ply edges on one side of the spread superposed perfectly in a vertical
line. The ply edge alignment on the other side of the spread may not be superimposed in a vertical to the
table. This will depend on the variations in cloth width among the bolts of fabrics used in the spread. If
there is no width variation, both sides will form vertical lines to the table surface in a straightedge
spread. If the fabric width varies from bolt to bolt, or within each bolt, only one side of a straight-edge
spread will have vertical superposing. The greater the width variation, the greater the unevenness in the
no straight edge. This is also true for both sides of a straight-edge spread, which has poor side edge
alignment on the supposed straight-edge side.

Centered Edge

A centered spread is one in which the plies are spread with their longitudinal centers superposed in a
vertical line. In a perfect quality spread of this type both side edges of every ply are equidistant from the
lengthwise center of the spread. Width alignment refers to the superposing precision at the sides of the
spread. The greater the variation in width or length alignment, the greater the waste in precision cutting
since the ends and sides must be trimmed to the narrowest and shortest plies. Precise cutting of a spread
of superposed plies demands that each cut side of a components block be a vertical line to the table
surface.
