Artwork Bleeds - Important!
View Artwork Bleed & Document Size Guidelines PDF
Your artwork needs to be a certain size to print correctly. For business cards it is 94mmx59mm. Part of this
size is what we call the "bleed" which will be trimmed off. The bleed area is 2mm on each side. In addition
to the bleed area outside the cut line, we strongly recommend making another internal margin as the cut line
can vary in location.
The finished size of your business cards will be 90mm x 55mm after the 2mm bleed is trimmed off.
Black Line The black line here represents where the bleed area will be trimmed off and the finished
edge of your card. Do not put any important information in the bleed area, or near the bleed area as it may
be trimmed off.
White Line Important information cannot be placed too close to the bleed area. We suggest leaving
another 2mm internal margin, inside the white line.
Grey Line The background colour or image must continue into the bleed area, out to the grey line,
otherwise an uneven white border may appear around the finished print.
