Pink Bleed Line
Bleed is the area of the paper that will be trimmed off after the document is printed. This allows a design to be printed larger than the end product’s actual size to avoid any undesired white space or border around the design once cut. It helps prevent objects from being trimmed incorrectly and cutting out part of the original image or lettering.
Crop marks are the exact points in proofs that printers cut off in the page.
Both bleed and crop marks are common printing terms and are essential in the printing process to ensure the quality of your printed document.
You don’t need to manually place crop marks and bleed in your design. These are automatically set up when you click on the Order prints button. To ensure that there will be no white space around your design, extend the background further to the bleed area as shown below.
