WHY DO I NEED BLEED?
If your document has a full background color or image that runs off the edge of the page, bleed is for you! This will ensure that there are no gaps in the gutter or white edges that could ruin the aesthetic of your design.
HOW MUCH BLEED DO I NEED?
If you’re printing a 1-page item (like a business card or letterhead) we need at least 1/16″ bleed (.0625″) on each side.
If you’re printing a multi-page item that requires binding, die-cutting, or foiling we may ask for more bleed. 1/8th” (.125″) or more may be needed based on the project specs (paper, page count, etc). Feel free to ask what would be best for your project!
