What is Bleed?

What is BleedThis is the most common area of artwork that is missed when supplying files.

So we’ll take a quick look at what it is and why you need to add it to your artwork.

If you’re creating a flyer for instance and you have a background colour that you want filling the complete flyer –  this colour needs to ‘bleed’ off the edge so when trimmed, there is no white space. 

Take a look at our small image above to see what we mean – this image applies to the majority of files you may supply.
