#TipTuesday when designing for print make sure your artwork is saved as a high resolution (300dpi at 100%) print ready pdf file...
Here is what we mean:
- 5mm Inner Margin or “Safe Area” - don’t allow any important text or images to cross this line unless you want to risk it being cut off.
- Cut Edge / Finished Size - this is self explanatory. If you’re designing an A5 leaflet then this should be A5 in size.
- 3mm Bleed Area - this is the space where any background colour or image should extend to (past the cut edge) so there is wiggle room when trimming.
- Crop Marks - these lines show where the paper needs to be cut as we print more than one image on a page depending on the max paper size the press can take & the size of the printed document. Designers usually offset crop marks by 3mm but if possible 6mm is better as it allows all the bleed to be used if needed. We are constantly amazed at how many designers don’t know how to prepare print ready pdfs!
