What is Bleed?
Bleeds allow you to run artwork to the edge of a page. On a press, the artwork is printed on a large sheet of paper and then trimmed down to size. If you do not allow for a 1/8 of an inch bleed, any misalignment while cutting will result with the artwork not running to the edge of the paper. Bleeds ensure you get the results you need.

Trim Edge
This is the edge of the final printed product. For a standard business card the trim dimensions would be 3.5" x 2"

Safety Line
Text and other important elements should be placed within the Safety line which is 1/8" inside the Trim Edge. This will ensure that no text is cut off due to variation in the trimming process.
