Bleed and general layout

It’s always best to keep your artwork on one document and put all pages in running order from Page 1 or front cover onwards to the back cover. This helps us when imposing artwork for multiple page documents and booklets. It’s okay to put the front and back cover over pages 1 & 2 of your document.

Keep your document page size relevant to the final job size e.g. an A4 Letterhead at 210x297mm Portrait.

Any part of the artwork that runs to the edges of the page requires ‘BLEED’. To add this, our standard recommendation is to carry your artwork beyond the page area by 3mm. If this is not applied you may have thin white perimeter areas when your job is cut to size. This will look very unprofessional. Do not alter your page size to do this - our print options make sure this is printed beyond your correct page size set-up.

Be careful of your margin sizes from all edges inwards. We recommend you keep important objects like text at least 4mm from the final trim size.
