So you have your 3-ring binder template and you are ready to create a masterpiece of art and branding that will make your client go crazy with happiness.
So where should you pull those bleeds out to?
What are bleeds in printing? Let us refer to Wikipedia:
Make sense? Manufacturing and printing is amazingly exact, but there are tolerances. The 1/8″ bleed allows for slight inconsistencies in printing, trimming, casing and lining your 3-ring binder to insure your art looks great.
If you are used to designing for the internet, consider this like the differences in how browsers read your code. You have to adjust for that too.
Here is what you will see. For simplicity, we are working on a 3-ring binder liner template. In example one, the art is pulled up to the cut line for the edge of the binder. If there is the tiniest variation anywhere in the process, you may get a small white strip on the right side of your liner. Blah. Click the pictures to see them larger.
If you pull your image out to the 1/8″ bleed line – all is good and your 3-ring binder liner will always look good.
Paying attention to your bleeds when working on a custom 3-ring binder or pocket folder will not only make your client happy, but also you (not rushing around to redo the art) and your manufacturer (us!).
Spread happiness. Pay attention to bleeds!
In case you are wondering, the photo is from the Des Moines Pappajohn Sculpture Garden which is rather amazing.
