We do not recommend borders due to possible shifting in the cutting process, which may cause borders to appear uneven
Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to final size
Bleed ensures a continuation of colors, images, and designs past the final trim size to prevent imperfections from possible cutting shifts. We require all files to be built to the full bleed dimensions specified for each trim size.
For the best results, please use our downloadable templates. All our templates already have the correct dimensions, including bleed.
