READ THIS SLOWLY: A bleed is the “extra” part of your art that is required if you want the art to extend to the edge of the paper.
BLEED LINE! = Red line where your art elements must extend to in order to have room to “trim off”. Bleeds are .125in (1/8”) around the whole business card.
Trim Line = Black line that is the size of the finished printed piece.
Safety Margin = Automatic cutters are not perfect. Save yourself the trouble and leave all important elements (such as text) at least .125in (1/8”) from the edge of the trim line
So when you are designing artwork and have the intention to bleed, it is crucial that you start with the right size document. For this example of the business card, I could set it up in InDesign with the Document Size as 2 x 3.5in, margins at .125 (1/8”) on all sides, and a bleed as .125 (1/8”) and it will look close to my example. If you are laying out a card in a different program that does not support bleeds, don’t sweat it. Photoshop does not handle bleeds within it self like InDesign, but you can create a document that is full size with bleeds (3.75×2.25in) and drag markers to the trim and safety lines.
Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When a variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance.
AllPrintUSA will always do it’s best to match re-prints to prior jobs, but a variation in color may occur due to length of time, machinery, and difficulty of exact color matching. This will be considered acceptable performance.
