Please build your press-ready digital files by adding 0 .1" dimension for business cards, postcards, and rackcards. Add 0.125" for all other products.
We require ALL files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size.
We automatically trim 0.05" or 0.0625" off each edge, which will result in the desired trim size
Simply add 0.1" or 0.125" to the overall dimension of your digital layout. Example: a 5" x 7" would have a bleed size of 5.1" x 7.1" and a 8.5"x11" flyer would have a bleed size of 8.625"[url removed, login to view]". downloadable templates?
What's a bleed?
It is the portion of the card that will be trimmed off when cut to the final size.
The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image or design to the edge of the card.
Please build your press-ready digital files by adding crop marks.
Lines indicating where the paper should be cut to produce the correct size.
a. Fonts must be embedded in PDF files.
b. Fonts must be outlined or converted to paths or curves in EPS files.
c. Some fonts have copyright restrictions and will not embed in PDF Files.
d. Quark Express: Fonts and images must be included with all files submitted. (Mac only)
All critical elements (text, images, logos, etc.) must be kept at least 0.125" inside the edge. Anything left close to edge may be cut off during trimming.
Please allow 1/16" cutting space around your card. No borders are recommended, as shifting in the cutting process may make borders appear uneven.
