What is Bleed?

What is it, and why do I need it?

What is bleed?
Bleed is the portion of the print piece that goes past the edges of the paper and will be trimmed off when it is cut to the final size. 

Why bleed?
Bleed ensures the continuation of color, images and design past the final trim size to prevent imperfections from possible cutting shifts. Please build your print-ready files with the appropriate bleed. We require ALL pieces to have at least .125” (1/8”) of bleed on all sides. We will automatically trim the bleed of f the edge, resulting in your desired trim size.
