The industry standard for bleed is .125" around all four sides outside of the actual size. The safe margin is .125" around all four sides inside of the actual size. This ensures that everything important is not cut off and that color goes all the way to the edge of the design. This principle applies to all of our printed products.
Design File Size: 5.25" x 7.25"

No white is printed on the panels. If you choose white as background color, then the white background will show through where the white is in your design, and you won't notice a difference. If you choose clear, the aluminum metal will show through where the white is in the design, giving a metallic look to the picture.
