“Bleeds” refer to any artwork or images that need to be right on the trim line after cutting. You can also think of this as “bleeding off the edge”.
Because of the slight variance of the cutter blade and paper stack – if bleed is not done correctly, white lines can show up on all the edges as shown below.
Following the bleed guide below:
- Drag or move artwork/images that are against the trim 1/8″ past the trim edge.
- If possible, it’s best to keep artwork and text 1/8″ away from the trim edge if it doesn’t need to “bleed off the edge”.
