What is Bleed?

The question we get asked most, relates to bleed. The 'bleed', is the area outside of your design that we use to trim artwork to the correct size. We use this area to ensure that no critical information, or images are cut off when we trim the pages (with a guillotine the size of a small room). Make sure that any images that are intended to extend to the edge of your design, also extend 3mm further into the bleed area.
If you're creating your own artwork, please ask to use our set up templates for your design. This means, we can quickly confirm the readiness for print, saving time & money.
