Creating PRINT bleeds, what they are and why you need them.
Bleeds are the extra area that extends beyond the actual size of your file that will be trimmed away when cutting your cards. When printing business cards or postcards they are usually printed on a large sheet of card stock. The sheet is about 40 x 28 inches and fits about 70 standard size business cards or more. This is called a gang run and is widely used in most online printers if not all online printers. So, no one prints business cards directly on to a 2x3.5 card alone.
Your files require a bleed, the area in which will be trimmed away when we cut you cards out of the large sheet. The reason for the bleed is to make sure we have your file images reaching the absolute edge of the card. Without the bleed, an unwanted white line or the other persons card printed next to your card may show up on the edge after trimming your card. The bleed is usually the background color or image of some sort that "bleeds" of the edge of the card. This does not refer to the ink spreading around on the card.
