How to Setup Bleed (“what the Bleep is Bleed?”)
I can’t tell you how many times I have asked designers to add .125 bleed and many ask “What is Bleed?”.
Bleed is added so that when we trim the printed stack of paper there will not be a white boarder or line left on the edge.
Bleed must extend past the cut-line and will be trimmed from the product during the final cutting phase.
When the image is required to extend all the way to the edge, bleed is needed to preserve the finished look and the quality of the final product.
Please keep all text at least 0.125″ inside the cut-line.
