Crop Marks and Bleed

When it comes to printing your professional designed project, using crop marks and bleed is necessary to prevent having unnecessary white spaces. Also, the marks help the printer to know where to trim the paper so you will have the perfect design that is clean, crisp and free of white spaces. You will never know what is going to happen to your design if you don’t use marks or bleed because printer can be misaligned.

You can also avoid having white spaces in your design by extending your design to the area in which it will be cut. This is called the bleed area. As the name indicates, it bleeds out of the actual canvas size. In Visme, background color will automatically set to a 5 pixels padding of the canvas and crop marks.
