Bleed is required in all artwork if you want
the appearance of color extending off the paper.
Add a 0.0625 border to each side to allow for
For example, for a 3.5" x 2" Business Card with full bleed, the image
size should be submitted at 3.62" x 2.125".
IMPORTANT: Make sure your background artwork extends into this area.
DO NOT add it as white (unless your background is white).
DO NOT add a border on your artwork to outline it.
Note that boxes and borders will NOT cut

The added 0.0625" (1/16") on each edge of the card will be trimmed
off during the cutting process.
This will leave you a 3.5" x 2"

Your type (text) should always be at least
0.125" (1/8") more inside the cut box on each side.
This will guarantee your text to not be clipped or look odd in the finished
