What is Bleed? (Digital Download)

It sure does sound… violent.

But no need to worry. “Bleed” is a printing term that is used to describe a document which has images or elements that touch the edge of the page, extending beyond the trim edge and leaving no white margin. When a document has bleed, it must be printed on a larger sheet of paper and then trimmed down. Our “What is Bleed?” guide gives you all the info you need to know!
