Important Document Setup Tips

Bleed Area TipBleed Area: The very edges of the document are called the bleed area. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your document, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge.

Trim Marks TipTrim Marks: The area marked by the red lines is called the trim line. This is the finished size of the business card. The actual cut happens close to the trim line, but due to the mechanical tolerances involved in printing, the actual cut can happen anywhere from the bleed area to the safe margin. This is why it is important to keep your text and important images within the safe margin.

Safe Margin TipSafe Margin: The area marked by the white line is called the safe margin. Please remember to keep all important information, like names, addresses, phone numbers or logos within the safe margin (at least .137" from the edge) to ensure that they aren’t cut off when your document is trimmed.
