    Good work, explaining bleed to clients is one of our biggest struggles in life! At least now if all else fails I can point them in the direction of this video and be done with it! :icon_thumbup:

    How Much Bleed?

    Entertaining vid.. I can recommend a music composer ... just kidding..

    I've got 2 new clients looking business cards done.

    I created initial designs as 'pdfs' in Photoshop.. 1 has OK'd the other is still pending..

    Each is to be 85 x 55mm (I belive thats std size?)

    Anyways what size should I set them so as to cover for bleeds?:icon_dunno:

    2mm ie 87mm or 89mm (57mm & 59mm)

    If you are adding on 2mm bleed this needs to be onto each edge, therefore the artwork with bleed should be 89mm x 59mm.

    3mm of bleed on each edge would be safer at 91mm x 61mm

    We also have a page on bleed and offer free blank print templates which already include bleed for most standard sizes.

    Hope that helps.

    I 've just been looking at your site and found the templates. I saw them before but didn't download them and just couldn't remember.

    Many Thanks Damon.:icon_hide:

    I'll move to the back of the class...
