What is “bleed?”

Most bleeding isn’t desirable, but in printing, a bleed is what helps create that really polished, professional look. When your artwork extends beyond the trim lines, it allows your design to fill the entire visible surface of the finished bag. That’s a bleed, and it makes for an awesome-looking product. To prevent any unwanted white borders on your finished bag, you should extend any design elements .0625” beyond the trim size on each side of the document.
