General File Setup/Instructions

File Bleed & Safe Areas

Here is a general example of how to layout a flyer with the appropriate amount of bleed. Please follow these instructions for any size.

Bleed Area

When your designs require that ink be printed right to the trimmed edge, a bleed is required. This means that 0.125" must be added on all sides of the artwork to allow images and text to extend past the trim line.

Trim Area

We recommend keeping all important images and type within the green safety area.

All of our design templates include bleeds.
