What is Full Bleed?
Definition: Full Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes to the edge of the finished piece (No white border around the outside edge). Bleed information is the extra 1/8" (outside the trim area) in the digital file that accounts for "Printer Bounce". This way your project can be printed on larger paper and trimmed to the final size you request without having white borders around the outside edges. Unlike some print service providers, we do not charge extra for Full Bleed Printing, we just ask that you have your files set up properly.
