What is bleed?

10 June 2017


Bleed is a very important element that must be taken into consideration when creating any printed piece. Bleed refers to any artwork where colour is going to the edge of the page. You must provide additional colour or image outside the cut area so when items are cut down there is no white paper showing around the edge of a printed piece. We would also advise text and borders etc. be around 3mm away from the edge of the printed piece.
