In screen printing, bleed refers to the portion of the job which extends beyond the area of the finished print. When the print is cut or die-cut, the bleed is cut away. Also in screen printing, bleed is used to describe the area where one color overprints another for purposes of registration.
a term used for print advertising copy that extends all the way to the edge of a page rather than appearing within a border. This is accomplished by printing on paper larger than the finished size of a publication/printed piece, then trimming the paper to the desired size
In layout: type or pictures extending beyond the trim marks of a page. Illustrations or photos (“Pics”) that spread, without margins, to the edge of the paper are referred to as “bled off”. Those that spread into the central spine area are “bleeding into the gutter”.
1. Used when an image is meant to extend completely to the edge of the finished sheet. Printing a color beyond the trim edge of a sheet to ensure that there is no white space at the edge after the substrate on which the image is printed is trimmed to finish size. See also: extended color; full bleed. 2. Adding a small border of the same color to an image detail so the color overlaps a different, adjacent color. The intention is to ensure that no white space is visible where the two colors meet even if there are slight variations in registration (x y positioning) of the two colors. See also: choke; registration; spread; trapping.
A facility for extending the area covered by a press advertisement to the very edge of the page on which it is printed. The area can include the ' gutter', the area closest to the spine of the publication. A charge of 5-10% is often shown on rate cards but nowadays this is most often waived
Printed colors that run to the edge of a the paper. To accommodate the bleed, the printer must make the bleed image area larger than the final trim size. The page is trimmed through the bleed area. (Bleeds cost more because they require more paper.)
An extra amount of printed image that extends 1/8" to 1/4" outside the final trim area of a sheet or page. This allows for tints, images, or other matter to print to the edge of the page. If sheets are printed without the bleed, it is generally not possible to print matter up to the edge of the page.
(1) The area of plate or print that extends beyond the edge of a package to be trimmed, or printed matter designed to run off the edge of the paper. (2) To expel colour when in contact with a solvent or water.
Extra image that extends beyond the edge of the page. Any time an image or a color is printed to the edge of a page, the image or color should extend at least 1/8" off the edge so that when the page is trimmed on a mechanical cutter, small variations in the trim will not result in a white line down the edge of the page.
Bleeds involved printing colors all the way to the edge of the paper. To accommodate this, the bleed area must be larger than the final trim size. The page is then trimmed right through the bleed area.
In screen-printing, bleed refers to the portion of an image that extends beyond the area of the finished print. When the print is cut or die-cut, the bleed is cut away. Bleed is also used to describe the area where one color overprints or traps another for purposes of registration. See also trapping.
If you have an image or block of colour that you would like to print to the edge of your book, this will need to be larger or flow over the margin of your page to avoid any white space appearing at the very edge. It will then be trimmed. The image is said to "bleed" and the part that is trimmed is the "bleed"
Printing to the very edge of the page so that there is no margin around the add. Some publishers charge a 15% premium for this type of printing since it reduces the speed of the press and creates printed waste material.
A gruesome sounding term that describes the harmless situation where printing goes right to the very edge of the paper. Whilst printed words almost never go to the very edge of the paper, some printed matter does (e.g. background colours on business cards and brochures, company logos, pictures and artwork). If the programme you are using does not support bleeds there is another way you can prepare your files for printing. Make your document 3mm too big in both dimensions. For instance, if the final size is 210mm x 297mm then make your document 216mm x 303mm. Draw guides on the layout that are 3mm from the edge all the way around. Now create your design with the idea that the layout will be cut off where those guides are . . . because that is precisely what is going to happen. Make sure that any photographs or backgrounds that you want to bleed go clear out to the perimeter of the document, past the guidelines. Then after we have printed your piece we will trim off that extra 3mm all the way around and bingo! You have colour all the way to the edges of your piece. It looks professional . . .
An image or printed color that runs to the edge of the paper. Since a press can not print ink right up the edge of a sheet, the image is printed on an oversized sheet and then trimmed to size. Bleeding increases the amount of paper needed, which may increase the production cost of the job.
In printing, bleed refers to the portion of the printed image which extends beyond the area of the finished print. When the printed item is cut or die-cut, the bleed is cut away. This ensures that the printing will run all the way to the edge of every piece. Without bleeding, the regstration tolerances of cutting equipment could leave unprinted areas along the edge(s) of a piece.
Method used in print to have ink printed right up to the edge of a page. The way this is done is by having the document printed on a larger page. Then the printer prints 1/8th (usually) of an inch beyond the document size on each side, and is then cut to size.
An area of print that extends beyond the trim size (bleeds off), without leaving a border. For example, a full page photograph or a stipple as part of a chapter opening, bleed is required to make an allowance for a clean cut whilst trimming.
If you want color to go to the edge of your page, then it "bleeds". The "bleed" itself goes beyond the actual edge of the paper so that when the book is trimmed you are not left with a thin white strip. A bleed is typically 1/8-1/4". [Back
Bleed refers to artwork that extends off of the paper. A bleed ad will have no white (paper color) around it. Art must go off the page at least 1/8" not stop at page edge. Trimming machines are not as precise as printing presses and can be off slightly when the printed material is cut down to size. It is almost impossible to cut along the page edge exactly. Having art go off the page will assure that after final trimming of page there will no possibility of a white hairline around the edge of page.
1.) A printing property caused by the ink spreading or diffusing on or into the paper. Usually it is considered a defect because it causes diffusion of the edge of the image or character resulting in indistinct edges but in some cases can be desirable in solid ink printing where it can mitigate banding or other drop errors. 2.) Bleed is also used when referring to eliminating the air from the chamber or manifold in either an impulse or a continuous inkjet system.
Printing that extends beyond the edges of a piece of paper is said to bleed off the sheet. In a printing project usually a bleed will cost more to produce than a piece that does not bleed. A bleed requires paper larger than the finished size of the piece to print on.
The part of a printed image beyond the area to which the finished print will be cut. Necessary because of variations which can occur when trimming large stacks of printed material. The amount of bleed varies, depending on the form of printing being used.
An image or printed color that runs off the edge of the paper. Bleeding increases the amount of paper needed, which may increase the production cost of the job. Bleeds are created by trimming the page to size after the printing is completed.
The area where print is extended by a few millimetres in one or more directions so that when a piece is trimmed down to it's finished size, the print runs right to the edge of the piece without any blank areas.
Printers cannot print right to the edge of a piece of paper because grippers must hold the sheet on both sides as it runs through a printing press. The printer must use a sheet which is larger than the document size, print beyond the edges of the document, and then trim the paper to the document size in order for the image to 'bleed" off the sheet. Bleed refers to the extension of art beyond the document's actual size.
Bleed is a term used to describe the placement of objects so they extend beyond the edges of a page. The amount of bleed needs to be large enough to allow for the pages to be trimmed while showing uniform ink coverage to the very edge of the substrate. If the bleed amount is too great, the ink may print into the gripper, guild, or tail area of the print sheet. Consult your print vendor to determine the appropriate amounts of bleed for you documents.
Artwork that extends past the edge of the desired physical size is called a bleed. Bleed is needed only for products that require cutting or trimming to a specific size. By extending your artwork beyond the physical size, the minor shift of the cutting tool will be covered up by the bleed.
An element (colour, image, type) that extends to and off the edge of a printed page. In print design, the artwork or block of colour must extend off the edge of the page. The publication is then printed on oversize paper and trimmed back to the desired page size.
When the image runs off the edge of a sheet of paper, it said to "bleed." This technique is a very useful design tool, but requires that a larger sheet of paper be used for printing. The paper is trimmed to the desired size after printing.
A hazy, unfocused look that occurs when paper absorbs too much ink. This often occurs when using thick, handmade papers with heavy fiber textures. In rubber stamping, this can also result when inks are very thin.
An effect left of your stamped image, often appears on shrink plastic if the preferred inks are not used, where the ink spreads in small lines away from the image. Can also happen if a stamp is over inked.
When illustrations or type are printed to the edge of a trimmed page they are said to "bleed". For example, if the finished size of your document is A4, it will be printed on an over-sized A4 sheet and trimmed to A4. An illustration may bleed at the head, front, foot and/or gutter (back) of a page.
An illustration or type is said to bleed when it prints off the edge of a trimmed page. Bleed illustrations are usually imposed to print beyond the trimmed page size. An illustration may bleed at the head, front, foot, and/or gutter (back) of a page.
Term used when designing artwork for printing. It signifies the area of material outside of the cut area that is still printed on to ensure that any errors in cutting are not highlighted by the print edge being shown.
When a page or a cover design extends to and off the edge of the paper it is called a "bleed". In print design, the artwork or block of color must extend off the edge of the page. The artwork or block of color is then printed on larger-size paper. Then the printed page is trimmed to the desired size.
If you want a photograph to "bleed," that means you want it to reach the edge of the paper, or the edge of the cover. In that case, you will usually use a photo size that is up to ¼ inch wider than where it will be placed. When the book is cut to its final size, your picture will reach the edge of the page.
A term used to describe ink coverage that extends all the way to the edge of an ad or printed piece. This is accomplished by printing on paper larger than the finished size of a publication/printed piece, then trimming the paper to the desired size.
The result of placing a graphic on the page so that the print-ing on one or more sides extends off the page edge. Use of bleeds in design requires the use of stock that is wider than the finished size to which the publication will be trimmed
An area (minimum 3mm) you need to leave around the outside of your final design to ensure that the artwork fits right to the edge of the page and that when the print is cut and folded there are no white lines left around the edge of the print.
When an image or design goes right to the edge of the printed sheet. The job is printed on oversize paper stock and the page's design extends around 3-5mm beyond the intended page size. The bleed is then trimmed off in the finishing process.
An illustration that extends to one or more of the edges of a printed piece; bleed illustrations are usually printed 1/8" beyond the planned trim edge(s). 2) Term applied to a lithographic ink pigment, which dissolves in the fountain solution and causes it to be tinted. 3) The discoloration of dyed pulp and paper due to the removal of color by liquid, thereby making it susceptible to staining other materials it contacts.
1. Printed matter designed to run off the edge of the paper. Also used by book binders to describe over-cut margins. 2. An ink that changes colour or mixes with other colours, sometimes caused by lamination.
Printers cannot print right to the edge of a paper sheet. To create that effect, the printer must use a sheet which is larger than the document size. Then the printer prints beyond the edge of the document size (usually 1/8), then cuts the paper down to the document size.
An image that extends off all four sides of the printed area without a border is considered a bleed. If you want the image to extend to the edge of the paper, then a portion is cut off the printed original to allow for the tolerance of the printing process.
When an image extends off all four sides of the printed area without a border. If you want the image to extend to the edge of the paper, then we must cut 1/8 inch off the printed original to allow for the tolerance of the printing process. Design full-bleed projects with the cutting process in mind.
The ability of a device to print text or images to the edge of the page. "No bleeds" means that you must maintain a margin on all four sides. A "full bleed" means text and images "bleed" off the page on all four sides. When a job is printed with a full bleed, it must be printed on a larger sheet and trimmed to size.
Printing term referring to an image or linked area that extends to the edge of the printed piece. Blooming - A visual effect caused by overexposing a CCD to too much light, This "digital overexposure" can cause distortions of the subject and/or colour.
Printed image, which extends beyond the trim edge of the sheet or page. The printed area that extends beyond standard copy/image area; i.e., 14' x 48' standard printed copy area may have 3" of additional printing extending beyond standard copy area. Based on customer requests, we are beginning to bleed images to the bottom of the board. This will result in three (3) additional inches of bleed over the bottom pocket—a total of 6" of bleed on the bottom.
Printed colors which run all the way to the edge of a sheet are referred to as bleeds. Some printers charge extra for bleeds since they require the printed image to actually be slightly larger than the final trim size (thereby using more paper).
Describes a photographic print that extends to the edges of the paper and has no visible border or defined margin area. Any image that is made larger than the original negative or transparency is technically a BLOW-UP, but in common usage, a blow-up is considered to be an enlargement that is 8" X 10" in size or bigger.
an image or printed color that extends off the trimmed edge of a page. Bleeds on one or more of the edges of a page usually increase the amount of paper needed as well as production cost. Bleeds are created by trimming the page after printing.
Printing term referring to an image or inked area which extends to the edge of a printed piece. The bleed is the portion of the artwork that is beyond the trim marks of the piece. The bleed is required to account for any slight misalignment during trimming which would otherwise result in an unprinted strip of paper appearing at the edge of the finished piece.
A bleed is when an image extends beyond the trim edge of the printed sheet. It is important to include bleeds in your artwork files if you want the image to extend to the edge of the paper for your final printed piece. We encourage you to create a design with a full-bleed - i.e., extend the image off all four sides of your design - to ensure the best quality for your printed piece.
In graphic design and printing, refers to an ink color or image extending past the trim edge of a page. This occurs when the design of the final printed piece has color or images right up to the edge of the paper. The effect is accomplished by printing the item on a larger sized paper and trimming it to the actual size. Bleeds usually extend at least 1/8â€ past the actual edge.
an image or printed color that runs off the trimmed edge of a page. Bleeding one or more edges of a printed page generally increases both the amount of paper needed and the overall production cost of a printed job. Bleeds are created by trimming the page AFTER printing.
When the printed image extends beyond the fold of an envelope or off the edge of an envelope blank. Envelopes with bleed generally must be printed before they are folded, since the fold line runs through the printed image.
Migration of an ink component or dye into an area it is not wanted. Can also be the running of a pigment colour by action of the solvent. Also: Extension of an image or background beyond the trim edge of a page.
A gruesome sounding term that describes the mostly-harmless situation where printing goes right to the very edge of the paper. Whilst printed words almost never go to the very edge of the paper, some printed matter does (e.g. background colours on business cards and brochures, company logos, pictures and artwork). If the programme you are using does not support bleeds there is another way you can prepare your files for printing. Make your document 2mm too big in both dimensions. For instance, if the final size is 210mm x 297mm then make your document 214mm x 301mm. But keep in mind that 2mm around the image is going to be trimmed to the final size.
When a picture extends to the extreme edge of a page it is said to bleed. A full page bleed has an image covering the entire page with no borders. In order to give the printer some leeway in trimming a page with a bleed image you need to provide an image that extends beyond the crop marks. This extra area is called bleed and is usually 1/8 or 1/4 inch.
To give up color when in contact with water or a solvent; undesirable movement of certain materials in a plastic (ex: plasticizers in vinyl) to the surface of the finished article or into an adjacent material.
To give up color when in contact with water, solvent or a product; undesired movement of certain materials in a plastic (e.g. plasticizer in vinyl to the surface of the material or into an adjacent material.
The characteristic of some plastics of losing their colors when coming into contact with water or certain solvents. Also, this is the undesirable movement of materials to the surface of plastic or into an adjacent material.
To give up colour when in contact with water or solvent; undesired movement of certain materials in a plastic (eg plasticisers in vinyl) to the surface of the finished article or into an adjacent material. Also called Migration.
