To ensure a smooth process and avoid delays, back-and-forth or additional costs, it is crucial that you set up your printing data correctly. Going to print requires print files that follow certain standards and specifications.


Crop Marks

Crop marks, also known as trim marks, are lines printed in the corners of your publication’s sheet or sheets of paper to show us where to trim the paper. 


In printing, bleed is printing that goes beyond the edge of where the sheet will be trimmed. We suggest a 5mm bleed to account for movement of the paper, and design inconsistencies.


If you place important elements too close to the cutting edge, they might be cut off during trimming. We call this buffer area, leave enough safe space from the edge of the document. Around 5mm.
