BLEEDS AND CROP MARKS

Here at Saturn Printing & Marketing, we work with a lot of different people. And all of those people have different levels of experience working with printers and design software. Day to day, we see a lot of the same mistakes. These mistakes can slow progress, reduce the quality of your project, or can even increase the price of your order.

BLEEDS AND CROP MARKS

Some of the most common issues that we run into involve crop marks and bleeds. These are very common issues with very simple resolutions.

What is a bleed?

A bleed is the area of the paper that will be trimmed off after the job is printed.

You will want to include bleeds in your files whenever you want the ink to be printed all the way to edge.

Printers cannot print all the way to the edge. So for a job to be finished with a bleed, the file has to extend past the final size and then be trimmed down. We usually suggest to have a bleed area between 1/8” to 1/4”. We ask for this so that if we are off by a fraction of a millimeter when we are cutting, there won’t be any ugly white edges showing on your job!

What are Crop Marks?

Crop marks are the little tick marks in the corners of your file.

We print jobs with bleeds on oversized paper and then cut the job down to the final size, and the crop marks tell us where to make the cuts.

Saving or Exporting to .PDF

It’s called different things in different programs but the process is similar in most software programs. When you create a .pdf from your page layout or design program such as InDesign in the Adobe Creative Suite, you will see options on how you would like your .pdf to be saved. For jobs with bleeds you are going to want to find the window that controls Marks and Bleeds.
