Final checks for preparing you files for printing
Images, background colours and fills which are intended to print to the trimmed edge of the page should extend 3mm beyond the page to give a bleed (this allows for tolerances in the cutting process).
In addition to the 'bleed' a 'silent border' is required. Text, boxes and other areas you require on your finished job should ideally be 5mm in from the edges of the page.
CMYK colour mode
In order to print properly, any image files that you supply for CMYK printing must be in CMYK mode. RGB files will look good on screen, they may even look good when printed on a desktop colour printer. However, they will not separate properly when made into film and the resulting full colour printing job will not look the way you expect it to look.
Images, background colours and fills which are intended to print to the trimmed edge of the page should be extended 3mm beyond the page to give a bleed (to allow for tolerances in the cutting process). Crop marks are shown to show the final intended page size.
