Bleed area is the portion of your design that extends past the actual product size. It will be cut from the final product. The purpose of the bleed area is to make sure your design is printed from edge to edge without leaving uneven borders on your product. Since the bleed area will be cropped, we recommend positioning all of the design elements you want to have printed within a safe zone. To check the bleed area and safe zones, as well as the image requirements for all of our products, please visit our catalog.
