Full Bleed Printing

Friday, May 26th, 2006 by | Filed Under: Printing Help

Full Bleed Printing

Have you ever heard of a printing feature called full bleed? Well, if you’re looking for a new way to print your pictures, brochures, business cards or any other projects you might be working on, you might be interested in this. Full bleed printing is basically a print setting that prints your items from one edge of the paper to the other, without any standard borders that most printers require.

Full bleed printing allows the ink to flow all the way to the edges of the paper so no extra white space or any blank area is showing. Most printers are not set up to do this type of printing, so you usually have to to carry what you’re printing 1/8″ outside of the regular format. This may still leave some extra border space, so you will have to trim the very edges off to get a complete full bleed image.

If you’re planning on doing a big project with this type of printing, there are companies who specialize in full bleed printing. You can find these places by doing a search online at Google or whatever your favorite search engine is. Of course, this will cost you some money, but if you have a brochure or a poster or something similar that you need printed, going through a company and getting it done with full bleed would definitely be the way to go.

Here is an example:
