What is Bleed?
Ink that prints beyond the trim edge of the page to ensure it extends to the edge of the page after trimming. As there is a degree of movement when printing on any press, you should always create 3mm bleed on all edges where bleed is needed. Supplying your job without bleed may result in white lines when we trim it.
Before Cutting
Colour and images must extend beyond the edge of your artwork, to prevent unwanted white borders. This is known as bleed.
During Cutting
Everything beyond the solid line is cut off, ie. the bleed.

How do I apply Bleed?
The concept of applying bleed is the same for all desktop publishing programmes. You need to extend the object box, whether picture or colour, out past the edge of your page. Then, when creating the PDF, you need to set your bleed margins to 3mm.
Is there an extra charge for bleeds?
No. Unlike many other companies, all our prices include full bleeds free of charge.
