To upload the correct file size with bleed:

 

A bleed of .5" is required around the outside edges. The safe margin is .375" inside of the actual size. This ensures that everything important is not cut off.

Bleed example

Example (For this example, bleed requirement was only .125". Please allow .5" bleed for presentation folders.):

  • Design File Size: 5.25" x 7.25"
  • Actual Size: 5"x 7"
  • Safe Zone Size: 4.75" x 6.75"

If your file is not set up correctly, you risk affecting the quality of your printed product. Please make sure the following are met before uploading:

  • Bleed - .5" outside actual size
  • Safe Zone - .375" inside actual size
  • Resolution - 300 dpi
  • Colors - CMYK; not RGB
  • File Size - no larger than 50mb
  • Pdf or jpg files are preferred
  • We also accept .png, .zip, and .psd file formats
