In printer talk, a bleed occurs when the color of the image goes completely to the edge of the paper. If you want that effect in the image you upload to our website, there are several things you need to know.
A bleed is printed on oversized paper and cut into the image. That means that you need to have a spare quarter of an inch around what you want to be seen.
If you have text superimposed on the image, you will want to leave at least a half inch of image around it, so that the text doesn’t fill clear to the edges of the paper.
If you are uploading both text and image, you will want to upload a pdf file, not a jpg.
We are available to answer questions between 8 am and 5 pm weekdays. And yes, there is someone here over the noon hour.
