Comic Book Terms – Distributor Stripes

What are Distributor Stripes? A distributor stripe is a color brushed or sprayed on the edges of comic book stacks by the distributor/wholesaler to code them for expedient exchange at the sales racks. Typical colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Distributor Stripes are not a defect.
