Build to Bleed (When Setting Up Files for Printing)

Each week, our reps field a question or two about files needing to be set up with a bleed included in the document size. So, here’s the deal. Modern's printing process involves printing multiple orders on the same press sheet and trimming out individual cards after printing. So, the number of cards on a press sheet varies depending on the card sizes that are printing- we can print up to 32 standard cards on a single 26"x36" press sheet.

Because of this printing process, we require a 1/16” bleed to be included into each layout. This gives us a decent amount space between each layout.

I am very pleased with my most recent job from Modern Postcard. Even tho' I sent what were probably confusing instructions and substandard images, the layout, design, color, and printing results were excellent. Job was done on time and shipped to me immediately, so I was able to meet a mailing deadline. I will continue to use Modern Postcard's services, because nobody else I have tried comes even close to their quality and reliability. I have already received lots of compliments on the most recent card. I highly recommend Modern Postcard, especially for people in the arts, where quality of image counts for a lot.
