The illustration below shows bleeds and margins. Please contact our design department with questions.
An 1/8” bleed is required whenever you want color, a photo, or a graphic to go to the edge of the page. A bleed ensures that when cut, no white edge shows. You should also leave a 1/8” margin to any text or graphics to make sure they are not cut off.
Your file will need to be 1/4” wider and taller than the trim size. Example: business cards are 3.5 x 2”. Your file with bleeds would be 3.75” x 2.25”
