What is bleed?

Updated: Oct 12, 2023

Bleed on print artwork refers to the extra space added around the edge of a design to

accommodate for slight variations in the cutting process so to ensure that the final printed product looks neat and professional.

Without bleed , the final product could end up with thin and uneven white borders or even worse, important elements of the design could be cut off.

If you are unsure how to add bleed to your artwork you can simply keep any important information away from the edges of your design by at least 3mm , this allows us to add bleed in the setup process.
