Your document size must be the finished size plus
2mm bleed on all edges. Resolution should be 300dpi.

Multiple-page documents should be supplied as a single PDF file. Example: Double-sided business cards

What is bleed and how is it used in print?

This is one of the most common questions
we answer at The Printing Factory.

Bleed is a specific area (usually 2mm) added to each
outside edge of a page as an aid for the finisher
to be able to trim the final document correctly.

Any element (photo, colour etc.) that comes to the edge of your page must overlap the edge by at least 2mm.

Using Bleed ensures a professional finish to your job.
