The Safe area of your graphic is .125” inside the ACTUAL SIZE area. Your important info is placed within your design within the Safe Area. Anything outside that area runs the risk of being cut off.

TRIM SIZE

This area is the finished/actual size of your piece.

BLEED SIZE

This is the part of your design that goes past the actual size that will be trimmed off. makes sure that your design goes to the very edge without leaving any white edges for a perfect cut.

We utilize CMYK printing. If you have your files as an RGB color profile we cannot match the color correctly. If you are using specific PMS colors, convert to CMYK and make a note of those colors for us.

RESOLUTION
