Bleed is when any printed object (background, pictures, etc) goes to the edge of the page





All text and important pieces of images (faces, titles on buildings

etc.) should be kept inside this 3/8" (.375) margin. Anything left

outside this zone may be cut off or lost in the bind process.



The final page size



Extend the background images or colors 1/4" (.25) to the red dotted

box to add bleed. YOU MUST increase your page size to the bleed

size before saving as a .pdf. See our calculator above for bleed sizes.


*For custom page sizes follow these same guildelines.
