4. How should I set up my bleed?

Bleed must extend past the cut-line and will be trimmed from the product during the final cutting phase. When the image is required to extend all the way to the edge, bleed is needed to preserve the finished look and the quality of the final product. 

Please keep all text at least 0.125″ inside the cut-line. 

– The bleed for Standard Products is 0.125″. 
– The bleed for Booklets and Presentation Folders is 0.25″. 
– For large format products, please see the LargeFormatFAQs for individual substrate guides. 

We recommend using our templates at all times.
