File Setup for Bleeds, Cutline and Safety
Bleeds, Cut Line, Safety
Bleed is an essential component for all the artworks. Add 0.125” inches to each side of the artwork to allow the trim procedure. For example: For a 5”x7” artwork with full bleed, set the image size to 5.25”x7.25” for the red box.
This way, 0.125 from each side of the artwork will get trimmed during the trimming process and the original 5”x7” size image will be left behind, in the dotted black box.
To keep the text untrimmed, make sure that it remains 0.125” inside the dotted blue line on each side of the artwork.
