What is bleed ?
Does your artwork contain images, text or graphics that extend to the very edge of the finished piece? This is called "bleeding off the edge" or simply "bleed". Files with bleed need to be built to the final trim size plus 1/8" (.125") extra on
side for the bleed. Example, if you are ordering an 8.5" x 11", the graphic image size should 8.75" x 11.25". When saving or exporting the file to PDF, make sure the file includes the extra area that you created.
If you are designing your project in Adobe software, Export Styles are a great way to store the settings to accomplish this.
