Here's some common Print Resources to assist with getting your document to us.
What is Bleed and How do I add it to my files?
Bleed is the extended area past the ‘Crop Marks’ on the paper that will be trimmed off after the job is printed. It extends beyond the document’s dimensions and overlaps the border of your artwork. When printed, this additional bleed will be cropped so that the finished product is the correct size.
What are Crop Marks and How do I add it to my files?
Crop Marks work with bleed to indicate the exact position where the paper will be trimmed. You will notice on the example that the image extends beyond the crop marks allowing for any movement and ensuring that the finished product has the image to the edge of the page. Crop Marks can be added to a document when creating the PDF by selecting ‘Marks and Bleed’ under Adobe PDF settings and checking the ‘Crop Marks’ box.
