THE IMPORTANCE OF BLEED


If you are not using our templates, use the following dimensions when setting up your artwork. The proper amount of bleed makes your artwork wrap completely around the edges of your button.

1" = bleed area: 1.3"

1.5" = bleed area: 1.843

2.25" = bleed area: 2.627"

3" = bleed area: 3.45"
