Crops & Bleeds
Crop marks indicate where the artwork will be cut. When exporting your artwork for print, please ensure to include crops.
Bleeds are the parts of the artwork that extend past the trim line. Since shifting can occur during the printing process, having bleeds ensure that the edges of the finished piece doesn’t have blank white margins. We recommend at least a 1/8″ bleed on all sides of the artwork.
Some shift may happen during the printing process, in order to avoid having important content cut off, it's pertinent to keep your content at least 1/8" away from the trim line. In additional, please include at least 3/8" margin on the side where the page will be hole punched for coiling.
Artwork should be supplied in CMYK. RGB or Pantone colours will be converted and may not match the colours you intend.
Photos or any rasterized imagery should be 300 dpi minimum.
The preferred file format for print is PDF.
