Bleed and Crops
Images, background colours and fills which are intended to print to the trimmed edge of the page should be extended 3mm beyond the page to give a 'bleed' to allow for tolerances in the cutting process.
Text, boxes and other areas you need on your finished job should ideally be 5mm in from the edges of the page.
Images should bleed 3mm beyond the trimmed edge
(see image on right)
Text should be inset 5mm from the trimmed edge (see image below)
