Artwork set-up…what should I watch out for?
Most print is first laid up on sheets and then cut to size. This ensures clean edges and avoids thin white strips at the sides. The extra overflow of the image is referred to as ”bleed”. You should send artwork to us as standard dimensions, plus 3mm bleed on each side. So you add 6mm in total to each document dimension. So A4, which is 210 x 297mm, will be produced at 216 x 303mm and then trimmed back down to exact A4 again. If you are supplying multi page documents in PDF or EPS format, please use the appropriate imposition (e.g. perfect bound, saddle stitch) including bleed and crops.
