What is "Bleed" ?

"Bleed" is a printing term used to indicate the portion of the card that will be Trimmed Off when
cut to the final size. The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image or design to the edge of the card.

We require all files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size.

Full Bleed (Artwork size)
The margins between the trim line (red line) and the dimensions of your artwork is call "Full Bleed"
   images and text outside the Trim line (red line) will be CUT-OFF!

Any photos, colored background or images that you want to continue to the edge of the products must be continued past the trim line (red line) to at least 1 mm of each side.

If the artwork did not provide the full bleed your product willprobably end up with a with strips
   along the edge.

Trim Size ( Product size)

This is the finished size of the products after cutting off the "Bleed".

Text or images that next to the trim line (red line) MAY BE CUT-OFF!

We also recommend no borders due to shifting in the cutting process, borders may appear uneven.

Safe Zone
All critical elements ( text, images, logos, etc.) MUST be kept inside this area.

Anything left outside this box may be CUT-OFF during trimming.
