When an image or frame is located at the edge of a page, you will need to use bleed.
A bleed is when the image or frame is printed beyond the edges of the page (3mm minimum), to prevent any imperfections caused by folding or cutting.
Without bleed, there’s a good chance that a white border will appear between the image and the edge of the page.
All artwork should be created in CMYK colour mode. Artworks sent to us in RGB mode will be converted to CMYK by our pre-press system, and will nearly always render unsatisfactory results.

Bleed & Crop Marks
When exporting your print-ready file, make sure you include your previously added bleed as well as crop marks. These will ensure the cut position of your design is correct.
