What is printer bleed?
What is printer bleed? It is something to make our cutting easier.
The purpose of bleed is tied into how we actually produce printed items, especially if the finished item has artwork all the way to the edge. When we print a product, we can't actually print all the way to the edge of the paper, just based on how the machines work.
Our production process lays out the printed piece on a sheet larger than the final product. If we can, we try to include multiple pieces per sheet, printing them with as many as we can fit on the press sheet so we can use less paper and print more quickly. We hope this answers your question "What is printer bleed?"
