What is bleed in printing and why is it important?

/What is bleed in printing and why is it important?

People often ask What is bleed in printing? The ‘bleed’ is a 3mm section surrounding the edge of our printed dimensions so that all images, text and colour that are intended to extend to the edge of the page can bleed off the page allowing your print to go right to the edge of the paper used.

It’s very important that you consider the bleed when printing text, boxes and other elements so they are not cut from the finished print.
